Found Dogs Update

I added a link to a picture and some info on my last LJ post.

I'd sure appreciate any prayers or energy for these two. They appear to be overly scared of Josh. The female growls quite a bit when he is around, but they let me get close without growling. I was really trying to soothe them, offering food & lots of Reiki. We think they were abused by a man. They're really terrified.

I'm afraid that might make it hard to find homes for them. Worse yet, I got an automated letter from our local freecycle mods, and apparently some people pose as rescues and specifically target multiples or litters to use in training for fighting dogs. I don't know how accurate that is, but I've checked out the profiles of everyone who's responded, and none of them have actual profiles with personal info or pictures. Only one or two of them was even a coherent response by intelligent pet owners (as in, nobody giving me *any* information, just "I'll take them"). *Sigh* I've contacted them all for more information. Makes it discouraging, because we really don't want to take them to a shelter. But they're scared to death and we can't very well keep them out in our shed.

Anyway, thanks for all your kindness and help as we try to find them loving homes!

If they are growling and snappy and don't calm down eventually do not take them to the shelter (unless it is no-kill).

I worked in one a long time ago and when animals are assessed for adoption that's a red flag (unfortunately).

They're very cute, hopefully you'll find someone to help them.

I hope so too. We don't want to take them to the shelter because they *do* euthanize, but the only no-kill shelter I know of says you have to be willing to foster the pets yourself until they're placed, and we just can't do that. :(

I'm sure you know this info already, I just need to feel like I'm helping. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm using 'The Secret' on them. They already have a loving home where they will be pampered and adored for the rest of their lives. So mote it be ;)

*hugs*

Thanks so much for that link - and your loving support! I had contacted some of those places, but there are a few on there that I didn't know of. You're a doll!
