So these offers came after you were done messaging this guy? But no mention of meeting him anywhere here. Nor meeting his kids, wife. You just wrapped this up via texts? And you gauged this super excited 100% based on texts. How was the dog was transported...did they pick up, you delivered?
Sadly, you simply discarded our advice, efforts, compassion to Lobo's situation and dumped your dog. I pray he got lucky and my concerns are a moot point. But here is how yesterday played out.
2:40pm - Jchrest offered to foster your dog
3:30pm - I checked your status (very easy, just click on your user name), You were online viewing your thread.
3:40pm - JonRob made the offer to transport you were online
4:21pm - I posted for you to come on and acknowledge offer. You were online.
4:30pm - I sent you a PM asking if you had seen updates. Again. You were online and viewing your thread
Right after my PM inquiry, you went OFFline.
At 5:44pm - you returned to the forum, but were offline when I checked. But that was the time you were last on (Approx. 6:30pm when I checked).
At some point Jchrest PM'd you too. IDK what time she did.....You didn't reply to either PM, yet I suspect you got the notifications to your phone.
So you were logged onto the forum while all this went down. Then off. Then back on.
And at 9:48pm...you have the audacity to lie to the good people here that you "just now became aware of the offers" (????)
And at 10:50pm...you say you did do a home visit. yet at 9:48 you talk about how you just finished messaging with him when all these offers came in, yet you were online and reading them.
Speaks to the polygraph test fail.
Good work, GatorBytes.
If the OP really did make a home visit with Lobo and leave him there, why didn't he take pics and post them here? He is a lousy liar.
Here's some more info: Guess what showed up at the Houston dog pound? A very sad looking GSD who looks like Lobo. Here's the link:
He's listed with the name Sheppie, but even the OP would be smart enough not to give his real name if this is Lobo.
The dog pound is the only organization available for a quick dog dump because they take in everything, unlike the "no-kill" "rescue" groups which almost never have room for another dog. The reason dog pounds can always take in dogs is because they quickly kill dogs when they get short on space.
Which neans this GSD does not have much time left before he is executed.
Some of you have expressed the view that you will just fantasize that everything is great with Lobo so you can sleep better at night.
But Lobo doesn't have that choice. He has to deal with reality, no matter how ugly. No happy fantasies for him.
So if you want to hang on to your fantasies, please stop reading this post.
But if you want to help that GSD at the Houston dog pound, keep reading.
The only way to find out about a dog at the dog pound is to get your butt down to the dog pound and check the dog out. I'm clean across the county from Houston so I can't.
Someone in the Houston area has to tear themselves away from their keyboard NOW, go to the dog pound, and check this dog out. See if he responds to the name Lobo.
Even if the dog does not appear to be Lobo, I will still pay for his transport to a good home if he has a good temperament. At least that will be one dog saved because Lobo was lost.
The details canNOT be discussed on public forums. So if you want to do something real here, please PM me.
