Dog Section: Shelter using designer dog names?
They received a b*tch and her litter of pups a couple of weeks ago - and they've fully weaned them and they'll all be ready to go in a few weeks.
[I happened to minorly fall in adoration with the lightest-coloured of the litter. Took ten minutes to leave her and be on my way! Oh the cuteness.]
So on the farthest end of the rows there were two dogs in side-by-side cages.
Starsky and Hutch.
Owner surrenders, with their tags and everything [uncommon in this area. Owner surrenders, at least].
Their paperwork stated their breed as "Puggle".
I did have a small "wish" to speak with the shelter about that; but I decided it most likely would not end well [and I wasn't in the best of moods anyway].
Do you think it's "right" for shelters to put the designer dog name on the paperwork - rather than one of the breeds, and "mix", or one of the dog breeds x other dog breed.
And I do, in fact, help out at the shelter. They call me up when they need help; and I go down as soon as I'm able. Next time, stick your thumb in your mouth and call Momma over for feeding time, hun.
Rude children now-a-days. *eye roll*.
Dutchman - Good to have you back! Thanks!
