In February I saw a lump under some bushes in the neighbor's front yard. I went over to investigate and the neighbor came outside. She knew nothing about it and we ended up dragging a puppy out from under the bushes. She was terrified and filthy and covered in ticks. She was tiny and I put her in a cat kennel to take her to the pound. The pound would not take her because I found her in one town and they are in another town. The suggested our vet might do adoptions. Well, the vet was more than happy to check her out, give her shots and charge me $100 and send her home with me. We tried to find her a home but we had no takers. She is still with us by default. The last thing we needed was another dog in this house.
