There's a woman who lives not far from us, who fancies herself some sort of rescuer, who used a slip lead to tie up a dog not too long ago.
But what was kind of interesting was they found this dog as a stray, and tried to sell him on CL! She'd asked me if I could take him and for some reason it took me over a day to get over there so they put him on CL for $75! And they did nothing in the way of vetting him.
I had messaged her back and told her I'd come over and get him, and she told me he had run off. An hour or so later I saw him on CL!
I messaged her and chewed her out good about selling a dog they'd just found, had not given a vaccine or anything, and were asking money for (I've taken other pets in the past from her, even a rabbit she was getting rid of and also helped her w/a litter of abandoned kittens, and have taken a different dog from her as well) and she felt bad then and said to come get him.
Well I got there and his eyes were just blood red, the white parts.
I asked WTF had happened and she had tied him up using a slip lead, he'd almost hung himself to death.
You can't cure stupid is right
