Yep, I found one. In the ghetto. Seriously. I have to drive through the ghetto to get to and from my parents' house.
Well, on the way back, I see this black dog wondering aimlessly in the street. It had no concept of the cars or anything. So, of course, I pull over. In the ghetto.
I had some bread from my parents' house, so I grabbed some of that and called her to me. I finally gained her trust and go to pet her, etc. She had no collar, no tags, nothing. She's not spayed, and her nipples looked big (like she'd had pups before), so I squeezed them to make sure no milk came out (wanted to make sure some pups weren't depending on her). Nothing came out. So in the car she went.
It was at this time that a man came up to my car and asked if I was looking for drugs, what I was doing out here, and if I could give him a ride. I said, "No, sorry. I'm a girl, you know." And he said he understood. Awesome. So with that I sped off.
I got her home, bathed and fed her, and she slept in the kitchen for the night.
I put her in the same place today, but she got through the gate (it wasn't very secure) and pooed and peed in Jim's room.
I guess she's not potty trained. She shakes, sits, plays with toys, gives lots of kisses, and is very attentive. Very submissive. Not too bad on a lease. Just a little pulling.
Her left eye has dry skin around it, and so I think there's something wrong with it. Also, Jim said he noticed blood in her poo. And when I cleaned her mess today, there was a tiny spot of blood in the urine area. Hmmm. I can't take her in to the vet until Monday.
I'll check for a microchip (SERIOUSLY doubt there is one), and have her looked over.
I'm putting her in the crate tonight, I think. She definitely won't have access to any carpeted areas.
So what should I do?
Normally I would put up flyers, ask around, and all that usual stuff. But she was in a bad part of town on a very busy street. There are neighborhoods that branch off of that street, but I don't know which one she came from. Should I do the usual, or should I just try and find her a home?
Btw, she looks just like Chaquita, except bigger. Haha.
