OK, Make You A Deal!

I have a dog that I want to find a good home for. A female, spayed, about 2 1/2 years old, mixed breed with probably Setter in her background, She is a "rescue" dog from the facilities in Thomasville, Ga. and ended up with my Daughter from a friend who moved to Atlanta. Daughter and family live next to us out in the country, so the dog ended up adopting ME! And I literally mean ADOPTING me! She will take my hand in her mouth, gently, and walk around the yard with me. She wants 100% of my time and attention, and I don't have one minute of time to spend with her, so---

She has withdrawn and spends 95% of her time under the porch pouting. I've talked with "saltygatorvet" about this, and have tried to spend a little time with her on his advice, but it just ain't working out! She needs to be with someone, maybe an older person like me, who had the time and desire to have a pet dog like this and devote a lot of time to her! So----!

If you or someone you know needs a pet dog like this, preferably someone who can spend a lot of time with her, here she is! I'll be glad to take her to "saltygatorvet" and let him check her out health-wise and cover the costs just to make sure she's OK.

If I'm gonna have a dog, its going to be an Airedale or Plott---something I can sic on a bear or hog and not have lying around waiting to be petted!

    Sounds like an animal that will make someone a great companion. She needs to be loved. You are a good person. I'm sure you will find the perfect partner for her. Best of luck to you both!

    Maybe you just need another dog to keep her company.:)

    We have another dog----a 7 year old Chiwawa or however its spelled. This thing was 4 weeks old when its mother was run over and killed. Belonged to a migrant labor family (my wife is director of migrant education across north Florida) who promptly gave the mouse-size puppy to my wife who brought it straight to me and I-me-I raised the darn thing on a baby bottle! Now I'm a dog person all right, but like I said
    Airedales, Plotts, Mountain Curs----grew up with these in the Southern Appalachians, hog, bear hunting! Just do not need a "companion dog" like this ***** wants to be! She would make some older person a wonderful companion.....she's an "inside" dog, too, but I ain't having ANY dog in the house!!

    Hey! Lookey there! I got "edited *****"! All I did was identify this "female" with its proper name spelled HCTIB backwards!

    Since the sister is back from the forced(haha, they had to drag her to bozo airport) trip to Montana, I will hit her up. Or just bring the hound with you to Paxton with delivery.

    Hope someone will take the dog woods. From what you told me she sounds like a great dog for someone that has the time for her.

    Doesn't anyone still call a female dog who hasn't had a litter of pups, a gyp?

    Old school.
