Introducing Bullseye.

Hi, my name is Bullseye

It's been over a week now since I found a puppy in my local Target parking lot. A week I've spent scouring lost and found ads, calling all the shelters, asking around in the business complex that he was found, anything I could think of to find his owners, and still I have come up with nothing. This saddens me. I can't imagine someone dumping this precious puppy (or any for that matter). Seriously, if you can no longer care for an animal, take it to a vet or shelter, DON'T DROP IT OFF SOMEWHERE WHERE IT CAN GET HIT AND KILLED. Things like that REALLY annoy me. GRRR. 

Anyways, I picked him up on Wednesday March 23rd in the Target parking lot (hence the name Bullseye) after chasing him around for a few minutes. He was very skittish and afraid and didn't want anyone to grab him. Thankfully a passerby was able to nab him, and pawn him off on me (okay, I offered). First thing I did was run him to my vet to get scanned for a chip. I was hopeful because he had a collar. NO CHIP. That saddened me. My vet gave me some dewormer and sent me on my way. Once at the house, he got along fine with my cats and dogs. I can't say the dogs are happy to have him around, but he sure is enjoying them. He's a puppy so very very hyper and wanting to play a lot. My dogs aren't all for that. Chico probably tolerates him the best. And that's because Chico likes to race around the backyard. 

About that collar... the part that blows my mind is that when I picked him up the collar that he had on is the match to the leash that I own for Chico. 

The pic of the left is my wall of dog leashes, collars, harnesses, etc. It includes the leash I use for Chico. The pic on the right is the dog when I picked him up, wearing the matching collar. Of all the collars in the world, really? I found that very weird.

So yeah, as of now, we have a new puppy in the house. He is adorable. Some type of small breed, my vet says maybe Chihuahua/Terrier mix.  Though I don't know if I am ready to commit to another furever friend. We have so much going on with the wedding that is in a few short weeks. If we have to get rid of him, I definitely want him to go to someone I know somehow so I can stay in touch, and ensure that if it doesn't work out he is not abandoned again, and instead returned to me. SO, lemme know if  you might know someone.

Why, hello kitty.
