Stolen Boston Terrier at Portsmouth VA Animal Shelter
A Boston Terrier was picked up running the streets in Portsmouth, VA. Turns out, she was stolen 2 years ago from a pet store in Delaware. Now, she is at the Portsmouth animal shelter awaiting adoption since the pet store no longer wants a two-year-old dog.
Apparently, masses of people were waiting yesterday morning to adopt the dog and screaming at the staff when told she was not yet ready for adoption.
Now, I have a Boston Terrier--that was adopted form a local shelter. She is totally cute and the craziest, bossiest, funniest girl around. I can't imagine living with out her. Still, all these people foaming at the mouth to adopt one little dog? AND angry when they can't adopt her right now? What the heck--it is an ANIMAL SHELTER!!! They probably have tons of dogs that ALL need homes!
Why to things like this rouse people to do good and adopt but they have tunnel vision and will only consider this one specific dog?
