Torn : Havanese in the pet shop

About 3 months ago, our local pet store received a little black/white hav ... I have been watching him when I go in to pick up food for my dogs.
He is still there. They are desperate to get him to a home and are now pricing him at 99.00 (from 899.00) They actually asked me if I would still leave him in there if they were to give him to me. I almost cried.
He looks so sad and is so skinny - he has given up
Do I get him and hope to find him a home or what - suggestions??
I have 1 Hav and 1 Mini-schnauzer *who rules the roost*
Torn as to what to do.... but need to do something quick!

No worries

Are pup came from a pet store and is the best dog in the world! But i know pet stores aren't the best way to go. Do you know anyone who has been looking for a dog.

No one - currently.
However, I am going to get him and find him a good home.
We will fatten him up some and get the sadness out of his eyes.
We are in Northwest GA if you hear of anyone looking for a wonderful pet!
I will post a pic this evening.

No worries

That's a decision you have to make. If you're not willing to take him or can find someone that will take him, I wouldn't bother. I would ask that he be vet checked , and if everything is OK ,then you can make a descision. That is , you will pay for the vet checkup if you decide to take him. If they are unwilling to get him vet checked, I would be very troubled. Either way , he needs to be vet checked. As much as it would be nice to "save " this dog, are you wiiling to gamble on the fact that he may have major medical problems and major bills.?

Well consider it a rescue that you are fostering and get the dog. Good luck to you and hope you find him a home soon.

You a wonderful caring person to rescue that poor puppy. Lots of Luck! Do have him vet checked asap. Perhaps Havanese Rescue could help you with cost.
