I rescued a stray rottweiler last night... Keman stole my thunder and wrote about it in his livejournal. Keman's account is mostly accurate.

The owner appears to be a vet technician who works for the animal hospital whose name & number were on his tags. She's coming by tonight to pick him up.

I will note that there still remains many unanswered questions.

Things like "How long has he been missing? If you're a vet tech, why is he in such bad shape? If you were fixing him up, why were his ears so full of shit? YEARS of earwax and dirt, literally coating the insides of his ears fully to the tips. Why did he smell like he had YEARS of dirt in his fur? And, why is half of it gone? It wasn't gonna grow back till you cleaned it ya know. His dandruff was actually rotting away. Where do you keep him, on your porch?" remain to be answered.

Shoulda never made that phonecall, Galen. Shoulda just taken him in.

New rule: When you take a dog like this home, and he's in this kinda shape, you don't dare call the # on his tags. HE found YOU. That's how fate works. And now we could be delivering him right back into the hands of cruelty. Vet tech or no.

It'll be a while before I can sleep soundly after all this has happened.

Call Animal Control, and explain the situation. Or call the cops. TAKE PICTURES OF THE DOG AS HE IS, and note that this is /after/ you took care of him. Use a disposable film camera, not a digital, so there's no question as to the photos' veracity.

Is the dog properly licensed, if it needs one? If not, get her brought up on charges for that, as well.

Stupid so-fucking-low-I-wouldn't-call-her-a-bitch-cuz-that'd-be-an-insult-to-Hilde... *grumble*

It might not be a horrible idea to call animal control as well. Sounds like he was in a state far past neglected.

This kind of situation is never easy... It's virtually impossible to do the "right thing" or come up with a solution that wont leave someone feeling less than satisfied.

Hopefully she'll offer some explanation for the state he was in and things will be alright.

A veterinary technician who allowed him to fall into that state?

You should have the cops at your place tonight and have them arrest her for criminal animal neglect.
