Re: Columbus,OH Craigslist, poor boy needs a home

I bet he has untreated pannus. Poor dog. I wonder if they're moving with the sofa?

This is so sad. It's bad enough to dump a dog you've had for five years, but to dump your BLIND dog at the very last minute right before you move and on Craigslist for free.... Words fail me. Some people are just heartless.

I'm sorry but there's a lot of needless judgement going on here. You don't know what other efforts the person has made. People do other things than try to rehome their dog through Craig's list: 1. dump dog in country 2. move and leave dog 3. dump dog at animal control 4. kill the dog

Moving this weekend?.........spare me!

I wonder about Saint Francis Animal Sanctuary. I think they are in Ohio.....don't know personally, but I think they take in many handicapped dogs. Does anyone know anything about them?

Re: Columbus,OH Craigslist, poor boy needs a home

I think this person has been trying to rehome this dog for awhile. I believe I have seen him on PF's site or somewhere trying to find him a good home. I just know I have ran across him ! I check Columbus Craigs often & seen him there & them saying urgent now on him. They need to get him a home or he will end up at the shelter, pound, dumped or worse.


Can anyone help them out ? Any rescue ?

judgeing just stops people from coming forward for help. Very unproductive.
Hope he finds a good home.

Re: Columbus,OH Craigslist, poor boy needs a home

Let's spend time working on helping the dogs and not waste time talking about the owners.
We're wasting time on useless things rather than focusing on what's most important - the German shepherds who we profess to love so much.
I'm not against anybody on this site - I'm just for the dogs.

Why must we ALWAYS be slammed for making a statement about the owners- it is natual, BECAUSE we love the breed, to express how upset with the situation... I get SO sick of " Can we talk about the dog" Sure. But can we discuss WHY they HAVE to be here in the first place?

PLEASE

Re: Columbus,OH Craigslist, poor boy needs a home

If it is untreated pannus then the condition is reversible with medication.
Has anyone contacted this person? A blind dog is not a good candidate for adoption off of Craig's List or a personal listing on petfinder. I know that special needs dogs in rescue can take anywhere from a few months to a year or more to place.

Isn't there a gsd rescue in/near Columbus? Lake Erie gsd rescue or something like that?
