"Sorry, it isn't working out - we have to let you go."

"That's ruff."

Best possible outcome. Previous owners were despicable assholes who should be marooned on that river.

I hope the former owners get eaten by a bear.

Instead they probably have other dogs and will be allowed to own more in the future.

We can be a pretty farked up species sometimes.

People in Oklahoma are caring, giving people. Of course if that dog shows one iota of "lib" in him, it's back into the river. We ain't the reddest of the red for nothing.

It is heartwarming to know that now the pooch will most likely live the rest of his days being more of a family member rather than some prop to be abandoned.

The dog probably was crying, literally. :(

We get tons of rescue beagles in the DC area that were found wandering lost in West Virginia. Apparently the owners don't bother to search more than 10 minutes before packing up the truck.

What an absolutely great story...

I'm picturing you saying that while eating a hamburger made from a cow that was pumped full of drugs, separated from its mother, crammed into tight spaces, and fed a corn mixture while it fattened up to within an inch of dying of obesity before it was slaughtered by someone doing your dirty work by proxy ... so I'm getting a kick out of this.

I have. I know some really great people who are lifelong hunters. The kind of folks who'd like nothing more to give the callous douche in this story a good piece of their mind and make sure that pup goes to a loving home. I've also met some real pieces of human trash who were hunters too.

Hunters are, surprise surprise, just like any other people and run the gamut from scumbag to average to awesome.
 
2014-02-03 04:35:11 PM
Yay. That dog is going to have a much better life.
 
2014-02-03 04:36:10 PM
Story makes me happy and sad at the same time.

My 12-year-old German Shepherd just passed away (at home)...dog stories bring me to the verge. Especially ones with good endings.
 
2014-02-03 04:36:16 PM
Wow, the original owner left a hunting dog in training? Some hunting dogs can command as much as $5,000. That's pretty dumb. On a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being congressperson, that's a solid 8. Maybe even a 9; depending on the breed of dog.

Well they obviously don't care about killing another living thing so throwing away a dog is easy for them They don't see them as pets, they're a piece of equipment. The dog will probably be happier in it's new home anyway. Instead of living out doors year-round chained to a little wooden dog house.

We have two dogs that are both "rescue" dogs, the first one was from an abandoned litter of pups (Beagle/Pug) that our local rescue society took in.   The next one we got when the first one was 2, the 2nd one was abused by her owner and it took several months for her to realize we weren't going to beat her and she has turned into the best little pup that I think would fight a chainsaw to protect her home.   She patrols the back yard and will not let ANYONE in her backyard.   My wife thinks it's because she is so grateful to be part of a family.

Not trolling, though I am a farkhead. It's probably because I'm from Florida, and our "hunters" are mainly suburban white trash who want to get drunk in the woods and kill stuff. I'm sure there are decent hunters out there, just few and far between here.

That's. . . actually pretty reasonable. Fair enough.
 
2014-02-03 04:42:53 PM
I'm going out on a limb and say that the original owner thinks of himself as "pro-life" and a bastion of "family values".

Not that I condone anyone abandoning dogs, but I'd put even money on the beagles running off and not returning because that's what they tend to do. Seriously, it's not uncommon for them to take off running and not think to turn back until hours later, at which point they're usually lost. There's a reason they're used in packs. They're not that bright and need to use numbers to overwhelm whatever they're tracking.
 
2014-02-03 04:45:02 PM
The hunter in this story is obviously one of those who view a dog as disposable.  The same guy who will spend a fortune on a gun and, if it isn't right, will tinker away and spend another fortune getting it "right".  Even though the biggest problem is usually the mechanism pulling the trigger.  They'll also spend a fortune on a dog, not have a clue how to handle a dog, let alone train him, and then - when the dog "doesn't work," they'll abandon it.

Every good hunter I've known, and that's far and away the majority, wouldn't think of abandoning a dog anymore than they'd abandon their kid.  Even if the dog "isn't working out" they'll do the responsible thing, take it home and try to find a pet home instead of a hunting home.

So this dog was lucky.  Which doesn't change the fact that I wish the former owner more grief than he can manage.

Slaves2Darkness: Man what a douche. I mean he could have at least shot the dog, if did not want it anymore.


I feel really bad for laughing at that.

Glad the dog was ok and the hunter saved their bullet, hopefully they will accidentally shoot themselves in the gonads with it.

You're right about that. Florida huntards are the worst example of suburban rednecks that just want to go out a murdering. The law frowns on them chasing black folk these days, so the 12 wild pigs left in the state spend the hunting season in a panic.

Former owner should suffer a hunting accident.

Not necessarily, they could have thought the dog was dead and swept away by the river, and when the other people showed that much dedication to saving this dog, they realized that the campers deserved to own the dog. See, the story doesn't really back up subby's headline. Hell, it actually says that the owners thought the dog was lost. If I had lost a dog that I hadn't had for very long and thought it was dead, and someone worked that hard to save, I might just gift it to them, and I'm a huge dog person.

Should have killed the dog, survival of the fittest. You don't keep an employee who isn't performing, so why should the hunter keep the dog, who was effectively an employee.

It's like bicyclists - you register the spandex assholes. With hunters, you register the drunken boo-yaws who hunt in a monster truck with shiatty Sears catalogue "assault weapons" and everything they own camo - meanwhile, the cool ones are slipping silently through the misty glade with their powerbow, or sitting in a duck blind burning a phattie.
As with all cool people, they are far less visible than the uncool.

Here's another for you. One of my Labs was a washout from hunting school, so the PO was just going to toss this $600 dogpup until I came along. Now he's happy and loved, and nobody's going to discard him because 'he wasn't working out'.

We have a rescued German Shorthair Pointer.  We were hoping for a hunter, but instead we got the class clown of pointers and we love him to death!!

The only type of hunter I can't stand is a trophy hunter. I am of the opinion that if you shoot an animal; you should use as much of the carcass as possible.

The only thing I usually leave behind are the guts; you can usually find uses for everything else. Native American Tribes are usually interested in bones for ceremonies and such. You can use the antlers of deer to attract more deer by clashing them together. Of course; you eat the meat. The pelts can be made into rugs or blankets.

/ the hunters you're talking about are scum

Dogs that won't hunt make great family pets. It's just a matter of making the connection. Adopted a beagle mix pound puppy that was sound sensitive and he's been the best pet ever.

This is the guy at the frat party who eats out the drunken coed after she's been banged by forty guys.
If you are going to try to troll Fark, like a big boy, you need to get in early with something fresh.
For you to come in here this late, with that weak shiat, is twice as beta as taking sloppy seconds.
