Boosting the Signal -- Dog in need in Houston area  
UPDATE: Abby has found a home! Thanks to everyone who got the message out!

[A friend passed this on to me and asked me to repost/resend.]

"The staff at Meadowlake Pet Resort is trying to find a good home for Abby, a dog who is basically very sweet but needs some special care due to anxiety issues and problems getting along with other dogs, the result of not having had a stable home environment for a long time, and more recently, trauma she suffered when her previous owner hung himself (Abby scratched up his legs in an apparent attempt to get him down, and put all of her toys underneath him). His ex-wife and her partner adopted Abby, but the new place they just moved into will not allow them to keep her, and they're concerned for the safety of their other dog, also. The Meadowlake staff have been trying to better socialize Abby and help her adjust. She improved a great deal, but had to be separated from other dogs after she bit one of them.

The owners will have no choice but to euthanize Abby if they cannot find another home for her soon. The Meadowlake people feel that in the right home, Abby will be okay, that putting her to sleep is not necessary. Obviously, not everyone is up to the challenge of caring for a dog like this - but if we all spread the word, hopefully this will reach someone who can and will take Abby home. Her picture is attached.

For info, call Meadowlake at (713) 413-1633 and ask for Jan, Whitney, or Stacy. Thanks!"

"Abby scratched up his legs in an apparent attempt to get him down, and put all of her toys underneath him."

That's one of the saddest things I ever read. His dog loved him, but he was in such pain that he had to end it, and while the dog was there. And the poor thing tried her best to get him to come down.

Man... :/

It is incredibly sad. We make our animals dependent on us, which means we then have a profound responsibility to them.
