Some dogs are not so lucky. And if they end up in Animal Control, for whatever reason, they have little chance of getting out.
I'm afraid if I ever ended up in Animal Control I'd have a hard time getting out too. See, if the animal control officer thinks you are at all vicious, they put you down. And I tend to smile when I'm happy or nervous. Here is what I look like when I'm smiling.
Ginger also would have little chance.
I don't think Chili would have a problem at animal control.

By working with foster dogs Barb has also learned that when someone surrenders a dog to animal control, he is usually put down right away. See, animal control will keep a stray for 7 days (more or less) to see if an owner claims him. But if the animal is surrendered by the owner, they know no one is looking for him. So they usually put them down to make room for other animals.
There is a guy at animal control that will call our favorite rescue if a dog comes in that he thinks is "highly adoptable". But that doesn't always happen.
Well, I overheard Barb saying it would be a good day to go to the dog park. So I'm off to get ready. Thanks for stopping by today!
