To those "people" who dump off puppies in the dead of winter in 15f weather with 10inchs of snow on the ground. Your really sick. To those who do that but dump them on a HIGHWAY , There is a special place for people like you.

Sunday our car had a random flat tire. We where really upset because we just PUT new tires on our car before the weather turned bad. My husband and I where being very peevish towards the Company who put the tires on. Neither of us could grasp why this had to happen on the busiest highway in our area but worse was it was out in the middle of no where. My mother raised us to be able to accept the fact everything happens for a reason. I believe that more so after Sunday then ever before. As we sat on the side of the highway, A big red dodge truck drives by at roughly 40 mph and out of no where this horrible human being shoved a dog out the window.

Now my husband and I where on our way to the City to look at buying a Blue Pitbull to take the place of my babygirl who died in 2009. Well we never made it into the city but I left with a Dog & A random 742$ ER vet bill . We are now the proud owner of a 3 month old Black German Shepherd that we named Reno. Reno tho he had a broken collar bone and road rash, he laid in my lap wagging is tail & trying to nuzzle the children in the backset.

We have posted " Wanted" signs in every store & vet office with description of the truck & offering a 1000$ reward for any information leading to the original owners of Reno.

As it now stands tho Reno is one of the smartest & sweetest pups I have had tho he is no replacement for my babygirl Missy, He is truly a rock star . :)

I sure will, I have been trying to get photos of him but I cant get him to stay still long enough to get one in focus. I am shocked at how busy he is even tho his hurt. My normal vet said it was fairly normal given his age that his recovery would be quicker then an older dog. He likes to be right up in my lap with his head laying on my shoulder. My husband teases me about it saying " Well we where talking about having a baby, Looks like you got your wish."

I am a believer in everything happens for a reason. I can also relate to your story, I found my pup Apollo back in December on the side of the road in some bushes. I can't say what I want to say about these loser human beings, because I would get banned.

Enjoy your pup and thanks for saving him:) Pictures required!

Some people still don't believe that I found mine, they just don't understand how ruthless people can be.

Reno is just adorable, he looks like he may have a long coat.

I hope he enjoys a LONG life with the warm-hearted family that saved him.

Yes he has a very long coat. He loves to be brushed. The first night home with us I had to cut out those long hard seed Burs . I then wiped him down with a damp cloth & wetless shampoo * vet said not to bath him yet until the road rash on his belly healed up some more*. Reno loved being brushed so much that he feel asleep standing up. I don't think his a Pure breed German Shepherd his coat is a good 2-3 inch long. But then again I have never seen a solid Black one Either but our vet did say he was fairly sure he was either full or mostly German Shepherd.

We are going to make sure he has the longest life span as he can get. We went ahead and got him wormed at the vet and Friday we are going back for a check up & getting his Shots and Heart Worm Prevention started. He has an appointment for the 26th to get fixed. Our groomer will be seeing him Monday for a full work bath & dip.

What a cute little guy. It's wonderful that you saved them from the pond scum that ditched him. I suppose I should apologize to the pond scum now.
