Any animal lovers want to help?

Some of you may remember me talking about the dogs I rescued. A neighbor abandoned 7 dogs (5 were pups). I have had them since about the first 2 pups died of parvo, and I got the third one through it. One of the dogs is a full pit, the mother of the pups is pit/lab, and you can tell the pups have pit in them. Have to be careful about finding a home. All the dogs are young and very sweet (also very smart). The local rescue organization here would not help...told me to take them to the pound (the pound immediately puts down dogs with any pit in them, regardless of disposition).

Finally Brother Wolf in Asheville said they would help me with placement. A few weeks ago, they took 2 of the pups. I still have 3 dogs waiting (plus my own animals). Also...the pups had red mange, so had to get treatment for that.

Between vet bills and food, these dogs are really draining me. My good samaritan thing is costly. They are such sweet dogs, I just want them to have a good home and a good life. (Anyone out there want a dog?)

This is getting so expensive, thought I would ask if anyone would like to contribute anything toward the care of these dogs.

Hate to put this put this out there. Sometines trying to do the right thing is a struggle.

I already have two dogs and a 2 1/2 yr old daughter and recently had to rent my house and move into an apartment because of recent money issues. I might be able to take one though, I'll have to talk to the wifey.

Sounds like too much for you too. Don't think you need another dog at this time.....but nice of you to consider. :)

I'll talk to the wife and try to convince her. I wouldn't mind taking one in. I'll also spread the word for you.

Thanks. They are really good dogs. Susie, the pit (brindle) and Dolly, lab/pit mix, have both been to work with me. Dolly is here now. I work in a facility for adult with developtal disabilities. My cottage has 24 folks who are older. Both dogs do great with them. Lucy is the younger one...about 6 mths old now. susie still less than a year old...and Dolly...maybe 1 1/2.

try craigslist. I had a cat I found on the side of the road. I put an ad on craigslist and the first person that called took it home. I got 8 other calls after that if I had more kittens I could have found homes for them all. U may get so many calls you can be choosy about who you put them with.

    • You miss the point. Taylor was here before. We picked him because of what he could do for our wide receivers not because he had some great knowledge no other person had on the staff. Shula and Rivera and Gettleman studied multiple college systems for months before signing Taylor or drafting McCaffrey or Curtis and would have drafted the same whether Taylor was here or not. They liked the way Taylor developed McCaffrey which showed his talent but Stanford's offense wasn't Taylors idea or unique to him. Shula has a connection to Taylor as early as when Shula was at Alabama.  The debate was whether Taylor was chosen to replace Shula because Shula didn't know what to do to run a college offense and if he screwed up Taylor would replace him. And that Taylor was the reason and most influential in getting McCaffrey. I said it wasn't even close to the truth and this plan predated Taylor and was more thorough and we'll thought out. Everything since then just confirms I was right once again like usual.  
    • Assholes should've never taken it away in the first place.  Me and a couple buddies had a hookup and were all hyped up and planned out going to it... then the NBA had to get all political and take it out on the city of Charlotte and the fans -- which made no fuging sense.  Seriously doubt we'll even get the chance to go again.
    • 6'6" 255.  He'll definitely have some good mentors with JP, CJ and the rest of the D-Line crew. 255 he'll need to put some weight on don't you think?
