There is going to be a happy ending.

Yesterday, my friend Tiffannie and her husband Jonathan rescued a stray puppy. They are going to look for the owners but puppy is basically skin and bones so they don’t hold much hope of finding them. So, as a first step to finding a home for the pup (locally) Tiffannie is taking her to the vet for an examination, shots, a determination of her age and estimated size and eventually having her spayed.
She is extremely loving. She has been introduced to 2 cats and 3 dogs and has not shown any signs of aggression even though they have. Tiffannie is pretty sure she is Boxer/Pit mix. She uses her paws a lot (like a Boxer) and her teeth, nose and head look like a Boxer.
She seems trained. Will sit, shake, and lay on command. She responds to “No”. She howled this morning but hasn’t heard a peep since then.
So why am I doing this, you may ask. Well, recently I tried (but unsuccessfully) to rescue a lost dog. I followed up a couple of days later with the pound to find out if they were able to catch her but the story had a sad ending with the little dog being hit and killed by a car. It really broke my heart because the little dog was clearly very frightened.
