Just sickening (GS puppy)

I just took Pablo out and saw my neighbor with a TINY puppy. I said 'oh puppy' and she said 'do you want it?' I was like 'HUH?'
What happened is that a couple drove through our apartment complex yesterday and said someone was giving puppies away on the Walmart parking lot across the street. The girl felt bad and accepted one, but within 2 min. they decided it's the wrong decision and can't keep it. My neighbor (Karen) who is a cat person terrified of dogs felt so bad for this tiny thing that she decided to take it to find a good home for it, rather than run the risk it would end up God knows where. Unfortunately, she is a flight attendant and is leaving Monday morning for 3 days.
We believe it is a GS or at least a mix. This puppy is SO tiny, like a Chihuahua. I was just looking at GS puppies at different ages and if this one is a purebred GS (which I would doubt) it's only 2-3 weeks old. I offered to take the dog for those 3 days if she doesn't find someone by tomorrow night and take it to the vet and possibly GS rescue. I found a GS rescue which is luckily only 2 hours away from here. DH will ask his uncle if he wants it, cause they've already had 2 GSs. Poor puppy was crying and shaking, I told Karen to keep babying it and holding it close which she was doing anyway. She looked horrible cause she was worrying about the little guy for the past 24 hours and barely slept. We'll see how tomorrow goes and of course it had to happen on a WE where the vet's office is closed.

Maryam, that is heart breaking. The puppy surely found an angel in your neighbor and you. I pray that the puppy gets a chance to live and thrive in a loving family soon.

Best, Poornima

That is so sad. I hope that puppy isnt that young. She may want to hand it over to a vet's office or something cause it might need it's mother's milk and those nutrients still. Poor little guy

Oh no! I wish I hadn't seen this thread. Now I'm going to be worried about the poor little guy all weekend too till something can be done for him. Meanwhile I'm praying with his angels around that he'll make it through what appears to be a cruel start to a life on this planet. Poor baby. Please give him a kiss from me.

Poor little guy

Oh my goodness this is just so sad. The only good thing about the situation is that the person giving them away didn't kill them, although taking them from their mamma before they have a good chance at survival is horrible too. So sad, some people should just not be allowed to own animals. Kiss the puppy for me and I will pray for a happy ending to the story.

Poor puppy. Thank goodness he found caring people. But, I totally agree with Amanda. If you really think he is that young, he needs to be with a vet for the right care.

People are just crazy, I can't believe they'd take puppies away from the mom so young. I hope you're able to find a home for the poor little thing.

People are stunningly ignorant!!
Thank you and your neighbor for giving the little baby a chance.
Fingers crossed that the puppy is ok.
