Just say no, just say no, just say no...

I REALLY need to stay away from the animal shelter
Saw this lil' guy today and fell in love. He was sooo sweet, and loved my 4 yr old. After playing with him a bit in the yard, I asked the girl..just out of curiousity, if she could look up what he was. I figured some kind of terrier?? She didn't know, either. She came back, and said his file was pulled. So, he'd been adopted.
Bummer, but for the best. We're no longer in the market for a new pup.
I went home.
Thought about him all day, and called around 3:00. Asked the guy if he'd actually been adopted, or just had an ap on him. He said neither. I told her what the chick said, and he told me there was another in there yesterday and he'd just moved up. So, he was available. UGH!
Sooo...I took all four boys back up there after school. Of course, they loved him. He was all over them. Which was a plus, seeing as four boys comin' at you can be very intimidating for a small doggie. He cuddled my neck when I picked him up. He was just a real sweetie.

I guess he'd had about 8, or 9 people ask about him through out the day and everyone was told he wasn't available by this girl. But, now here I was. Back because I couldn't stop thinking about him, and now he could possibly be mine????
So, yes..I put in an ap
I know I'll get approved because they love me there, lol. They asked me when I wanted to come get him, etc.

The 411 on this guy, breed unknown. The one guy said a brussel griffon. Um, don't think so. Maybe a lasha apso??(which I hope not, cause I can't say it to save my life, lol)
Found in a park. And they think he's about 10 months old.
No clue if he's house broken.
I noticed an obvious limp, which could be nothing or obviously something major. They hadn't noticed. The vet is going to check him first thing in the morning.

I really think I'm going to call and tell them that I'm going to pass. I know he'll get scooped up right away. But, I worry about many things. One, the leg. My other two rough house and play non stop. He could seriously have a problem if there's something wrong.

Anyways, just wanted to share my doggie fix for the day.

Oh Tritia, no help from me!!! if you don't snap him up I am going to come and snap him up!!! He is one of the most adorable dogs I have ever seen. With training that is face made for the big screen. Oh I am going to be thinking about him all night.

I would say maybe some brussel's griffon, some terrier and maybe even some Havanese...what a ya think? you must take him.

How can you pass that up? He's adorable and sounds like a real lover! The limp could be a strain from being loose in the park. Ah.....I guess I'm not any help either.

OH BOY! No help from me either. That picture of him with your son is priceless! I would see what the vet has to say about his leg, just to be on the "cautious" side of things. As you said, your boys are very rough housers. <<< is that a word? oh well, it is now!
DO let us know what you decide. He's very very cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not my boys, my doggies are rough. The kiddos are oddly very calm children, lol.

And yea, nobody is helping,

No help here. I don't think you are anywhere near PA or I would come and get him myself. He has a face that is pretty tough to resist.

Ya, I noticed you said the doggies... that's a bit more un-manageable than the human boys.... Oh, you should still get that little cute furry thing!!!!!!!
He just loves you and your boys... aw..... puppy face!!!!!!!!!!

OMG, he's gorgeous. I would have scooped him up in a flash too. Maybe he stepped on something and hurt his paw. I've had that happen more than once with a dog.

Sorry, no help from me. I think you should have him join your family. He looks like he belongs and he's such a love.

Oh Tritia, what have you done? lol That is one face that is very hard to say 'no' to! He's beautiful and the colors are magnificent, but what about personality and health? It is good that the vet is checking him out. I'd be a little worried too since you know your other dogs are boisterous and can get rowdy. Is he neutered? He may have got lost, the poor thing. Oh, how heartbreaking!!!!! I don't know what to tell you, hon. It's either your head or your heart that is going to win.

Sleep on it and see what comes to you in the morning. ((hugs))
