These sweet babies were dumped in our neighborhood a few days ago. They scared the bejeebuz out of me when I saw them at my front door, licking the side windows and freaking out the cats. Luckily the corgis were in the house.
I called animal control but we are county and was referred to the sheriff's department. As I was calling, a sheriff's truck came down the street. Another neighbor had called. He informed me he could not do anything because the county does not have a leash law. But he said he could call a rescue organization and they might come get the dogs. Great! I felt like a prisoner in my own house because these dogs initially looked very mean. There was no way I was going to let Chloe and Zoe out in the yard either.
The sheriff returned and told me the gal from the rescue was going to come get the dogs but it could be an hour or more. He asked if I could contain the dogs in some way. I wanted to say no. I wanted him to take the dogs away. But I couldn't. I have the perfect pen, and these dogs never asked to be dumped. See the female? The one on the right? She was in terrible shape and it was heartbreaking.
I told the officer he would have to get the dogs in the kennel. He did. I got them water and patted their heads. I told the officer my dogs were not going to be happy about this at all!
The gal from the rescue arrived about two hours later and I gave her the food we had collected at Sophie's party. That worked out pretty well. I'm really glad she and her organization were able to get these dogs.
After she left, I did wash down the kennel area and let the local inspector check it out.
