gglibertine: Years ago, one of my cats tore through a screen and was missing for three days. I spent the whole three days walking the neighborhood calling him, putting up signs, crawling under bushes to look for him, checking the pound... nothing. Then I got a 3 a.m. call from my neighbors down on the ground floor. "We think we've got your cat. PLEASE COME GET HIM NOW!"

See, Iceberg Slim had never seen stairs (or been outside) in his life, and was unclear on the concept of multi-story dwellings. So he found the right apartment to come home to, only on the wrong floor. Turns out the people down there had a little dog-door insert for their sliding glass door, so Iceberg slipped right in -- and was immediately cornered in the bathroom by their terrier.

As soon as I appeared in the bathroom doorway, he let out a piteous wail and literally *leaped* into my arms -- right over the dog. (He also pissed all over me, but, well, he'd also never met a dog before.) He didn't usually like to be picked up, but he wouldn't let me put him down for an hour. He just clung to me purring and nuzzling.

I'm pretty sure that was gratitude.

/I had to finally put him to sleep a month and a half before his 20th birthday. Saddest day of my life. No one has EVER loved me the way that cat did.


LOL...I got a similar 3am call once when my donkey got loose...."Come get him NOW."    My little Sicilian donkey had their 3 big Quarter horses cowering in the corner of their pasture.  He wasn't actually threatening them, they just had obviously never seen (or heard) a donkey before and were scared sh*tless.

/so sorry for your loss of your kitty :-(

Found her after she'd been heavily abused by her previous owner and been found in a duffle bag on the side of the road. Best dog in the world and I'd love to throw the previous owner in a duffle bag and toss it in a cement mixer.


Why the hell do people like that have dogs??  The first dog my husband & I rescued was a long-hair German Shepherd.  We found her in a shelter, emaciated, fur all knotted, notches on her ears from flies chewing on them, and her teeth farking FILED DOWN.  She was the best damn dog either of us had ever owned--she was probably 6 when we got her & she lived with us for 9 years.  And the new one who was ignored for the first year of her life.  Some people aren't human.

You just need to teach her not to get into the garbage. Not the best.

I had a great dog. His worst feature was jumping the fence to get some strange. One of his greatest features was he learned from another dog was to crap in plants. Yep, he'd go up against a tree or into a bush and crap. I never stepped in crap from him in my yard since.

I woke up today and said, boy I'd like to go all day without loading an image. Thank you, mobile chrome and tmobile for making that happen. I was worried I might see the photo the article was about when I refreshed the page 5 times, but my concerns were unfounded.

I'm a softy, I give her Kong's with peanut butter in them as a treat and when the jar is empty she licks it out so it becomes her new chew toy for about 12 minutes.

This thread is mostly nice, but it NEEDS MORE PICTURES OF ADORABLE RESCUE DOGS PLZKTHX

I love doggies very much, but I'm not home enough to be a good dogmom. I have to live vicariously. Halp.

We adopted our cat Abigail from a kill shelter.  My wife fell madly in love with her at first site, it took me longer.  But I was the one who did the paperwork, and greased the wheels to make things happen sooner than they were supposed to, and I was the one who brought Abigail home.

We put the carrier on the far side of the back room and opened the door and sat on the sofa to watch her integrate.  She kept out of the carrier, touched the floor one time and landed firmly on my chest and put her paws around my neck and fell asleep purring.  I was hooked.

Unfortunately she was sick from the first day we got her, and no amount of money could save her.  We only had six short years before she left.  But we have some really good Abigail stories to remember.

My pooch Roxie is a double rescue. She was rescued from a horribly abusive home by my xGF. After about 18 months xGF got fairly abusive and when her dickhead, loser brother moved in he was 10 times as mean to the dog. They weren't physically abusive to her, just always mean to a very loving and cuddly basset. Although right before I took her she allegedly got into a fight with her other dog (very possible) but her injuries were far more consistent with being kicked than being in a dog fight.

The night I left that alcoholic, lying twunt I just finished grabbing all my stuff and was walking out the door when the pooch walked up to me. I couldn't resist taking her and its been wonderful ever since.

/she, and loserbag brother, had been asking me to take the dog for weeks
//I would have hated myself if I left her there

My cat is a rescue cat. He was adopted out and returned because he bites. We took him, worked with him, and now for the most part all he wants to bite is the mailman. Or you, if you won't let him out! And you know what, I love him to little nommed pieces!

This fearsome brute is Rufus. He's half American bulldog, half Shih tzu, which makes him a bull shiatz. Not sure what his former owner did to him, but he has a definite distrust of women, but he's great with kids. I do know she tore out his inner eyelid with her fingers because she didn't want to pay for a vet to have it removed properly (he had some sort of infection).

His sister is at the same rescue facility where I got him, and she looks almost identical to him. Sadly, she is so messed up she'll probably never be adopted by anyone.

sandi_fish: Rescues are the best, both my girls are rescues.  One is senile and the other is a good cuddler/hugger/kisser.


Well... now we know about your dating habits.

What the farking fark is wrong with people?    Everytime I hear these rescue stories I just realize that at least 30% of people walking among us have to be complete and utter sociopaths.

Cute dog, BTW

Matthew Keene: Anyone who thinks dogs and cats don't have a human range of emotions just isn't paying attention.


I've read a few studies showing that dogs and cats understand love, anger, pain, sorrow, etc....just at a more basic level than us.  I still like to think of my dogs and cats (they are my pets, but I call them family) as having a soul, and for that I show them as much compassion as they show me.

And my wife already wants a 3rd dog...oy.

StrikitRich: Have 5 second hand dachshunds and wouldn't expect anything less from another rescue.


OK, I love the idea of "second-hand dachshunds"...

One of my cats got scared when builders were working and ran all the way down from the 4 story low-rise appartment. We later heard meowing from the adjacent building, and saw him in our neighbours kitchen which was about 10m across of ours. Weird. Noone knows how he managed to sneak in.
