A puppy, just nine weeks of age, finds himself in need of a new home after his prior owner surrendered him for being “destructive and untrainable.” On Thursday morning, the Middletown NY Humane Society posted a photo of the pup, whose name is Wyatt, and explained what happened:
Wyatt was surrendered to us because he was “untrainable” and “destructive”. We were told he was 5 months old and upon sending him to the vet, he is only 9 weeks old.
The shelter prefaced their post with a request, specifically, “no nasty comments and no private messages.” The shelter is aware that this adorable puppy will generate a tremendous amount of interest, and they have already indicated that only 20 applications will be taken for his adoption.
The shelter writes:
Here at the shelter he is very sweet, and not destructive at all. He is neutered, microchipped and has some of his age appropriate vaccines. If you are interested please visit our webpage www.middletownhumanesociety.com and fill out an application. You must be pre approved to see Wyatt at the shelter.
Wyatt’s situation provides a teachable moment for anyone interested in adopting a new pet, especially a puppy or a kitten. These wonderful animals provide tremendous love and joy, but they also require work and commitment. Anyone embarking on the journey of pet ownership needs to consider what goes into it before falling for a “cute face.”
Undoubtedly, Wyatt will find a loving, new home thanks to the efforts of the animal shelter staff. You can find their Facebook page at this link.
