Am I crazy for even considering this?
Hi all - my partner and I found a German Shepherd puppy cowering under a motorscooter in our backlane yesterday. My partner's dad spotted it and at first I thought, he was talking about a cat.
We fed him, walked him to our backyard and let our dog out (Our dog is a rescue greyhound and was pretty unimpressed) - walked him round the block a few times to look for his owners and eventually took him to the vet - no microchip.
I've posted on every website I can think of, but I have a horrible feeling he's been dumped - even the couple of hours we were minding him he was a right handful (very jumpy and a peeing machine) but lovely in spite of that.
He has to stay at the pound for seven days, but I can't bear the thought of him being put down. We live in a two bedroom ground floor apartment that opens out onto a big shared garden (only 4 apartments in total). Our dog is quite skittish and growled, and barked at the pup a couple of times. We also have a cat (who bullies the greyhound and pees on our things when she's pissed off).
Would it be totally nuts to try and all live together in harmony, if he can't find a new home? It feels completely irrational but he was a lovely dog- am asking everyone I know if they'd be up for adopting him, so I reckon someone will, but any thoughts on this?
