    if you know some one near CT that wants a dog, please ask them to consider a dog from the hartford dog pound.
    each dog gets 10 days to either get claimed/adopted. if they don't get out of the pound by then, they're euthanized.
    please consider adoption!

    remember to check in on the website regularly -- they get new dogs every day!

    here are some dogs there now -- mostly chihuahuas and pit bulls (for more information on pit bulls, please visit pbrc.net. they're awesome dogs with a bad rap! PM or post here if you'd like info on them!)

    these aren't all of them... only a few;

    Aww, I'd love to, but my parents do not want a dog.

    We adopted our cat from the SPCA, though. And I agree - people should really consider adoption rather than going to breeders.

    Ohhhh....no, no, no....:( I couldn't look....I just couldn't! :cry:

    Hope those pooches find a new home soon!!!

    We got one of our pooches from the pound years ago, when I was a kid. BEST dog EVER!!

    He was a mutt, just under a year old when we got him. But, when we were looking around at all the dogs in the pound he just sat quietly. He almost didn't even look "sad"...it was more "annoyed" or something. All these people going through the place and he wondered why one earth he was still behind bars. He barely looked at us. There was something special about him though...and we knew he had to be ours!! It wasn't until he heard the words, "We'll take HIM!", that he jumped up and down like crazy!! Hair flew everywhere! After the leash was on him he dragged us to the car...never looking back.

    We were so lucky....there had been a deadly virus there JUST after we took our boy home...he was one of the lucky ones!

    :heart::heart: Beloved Scruffy, RIP :heart::heart:

    :(:(:(I hope everyone of these dogs find the homes they deserve. I know two people that have pit bulls and they are awesome dogs. When dogs are trained and loved properly, they can be your best bud.
    Good luck on your search Sarallyn

    Speaking of dogs, my wife worked at a No-Kill shelter, it's simply amazing to see how many people abandon their 'kids'!!! This Sunday we volunteered to take out for an extended walk two pure breed German Shepard dogs (puppies) which are very special. They were left behind to die in one of the foreclosed homes here in Phoenix. The bigger one, the Alpha dog, usually takes care of the little brother and when no one fed them, he managed to jump a 6ft tall fence to gather food, which then he brought back to his brother. He waited until his brother ate and then he ate too. These dogs are amazing!

    Didn't mean to hijack the OP but I just want to emphasize how wonderful dogs can be found at shelters! People, go adopt one at your nearby shelter. Save them little souls with big hearts!

    I have a German Shepherd. I would live on the streets before I would give him up. A beautiful awesome best friend.

    I took Kane away from an abusive owner when he was 6 months old. He was kept in a cage, and tormented by this guys 3 kids, who would poke him through the bars pull his ears, cause the cage was too small, and get him all freaked out. When he did not settle down, this ******* would take the boots to him. His wife came to her senses and decided to "get rid" of him, so I took Kane away. He will be 11 years old next month. Dogs need a "family" not an owner

    Good luck with this. :heart: I hope you've posted in several forums, especially locally.

    I wish all shelters could be "no kill" shelters; I have a friend who works at one and it is a wonderful place. I know that funding is an ongoing problem, though.

    Here's hoping these guys find new families!
