IT'S A LONG STORY, BUT...

...does anybody want a dog?

This morning, this miniature pinscher (who the kids next door tell me is named "TJ") zoomed past me and into my living room as I was heading out the door and on my way to work.

I caught him, took him outside and checked him out pretty good - played with him for a little while, before taking off. He pretty much hung around outside our house for most of the day, I guess, and as I type this, he's sitting right below my office window... howling. Normally I'd let him in, but I don't think my dog, Argo, is too happy with the little guy, and frankly, she was here first.

Now I'm not sure how this whole thing's going to end, but we know for a fact the dog's been on its own for days, he doesn't have a collar or tag and doesn't seem to know where home is.

So far, we've given him food, water, and a nice spot on our porch to sleep, but the truth is WE CAN'T KEEP HIM.

I've called Project Pet, the ASPCA, +and just minutes ago, talked with the Animal Protection League, and I was a LOT discouraged to find out that none of them could take him... not right now, at least.

But he's an incredible little dog with great dog manners, honestly. He's really low key, obeys commands very well, and loves riding in the car (he rode with me tonight when I went out to grab some Wendy's). Just judging by the way things have gone today, I don't think he's going anywhere, but I can't say for sure... I'd love to find him a home, so if you're at all interested, or know someone who might be, let them and me know.

STATS: I put him at around maybe 3 or 4 years old. Oh, and he has not been neutered, but we can get you free spay/neuter passes if that's an issue.

I'm not sure if you tried Pets Inc. but since they've opened their new facility, it's actually a place I'd consider dropping an animal off.

For about half a second, I was afraid Argo had done something that was just beyond the pale.

Look at the little fella. If I didn't already have two rascals of my own, I would take him.

I'll second Jason, give Pets Inc a call. They seem to take just about anything.

I am such a dog guy now.

Same thing happened to me last November. We have 3 cats and kept a stray until a home was found... two days ago we dropped a large sum of money casue she had a seizure. Needless to say we love her.

Good luck finding a home for the little guy.
