Talking Proud new puppy owner!

Just wanted to announce the arrival of our new pound puppy - she's nameless as of yet, but I'm sure we'll find something that fits. The folks at the pound named her Lea but I think we're going to find another name - the pup is only 7 weeks old so I don't think a new name will be too traumatic!!

She's the cutest thing ever (all puppies are) but her arrival is extra special given her very rough start to life. Seems as though some jerk put 6 puppies into a garbage bag and tossed them into a ditch from a moving car... Jerk is the mildest term I could come up with given the heinous nature of this act.

A couple walking by heard the cries and promptly rescued the poor pups - they were hours old. Two of them didn't end up making it. Here's an article. I now am the proud mama of the little girl mentioned in that article. All the pups have now found their forever homes. A good ending to a horrible beginning.

I haven't had time to take any pictures yet, but I've attached a few pics of her and her brothers.

Lucky little puppy that one. You are right, Lea seems to be the wrong name for such a feisty little girl. They sure do grow up fast don't they?

Congratulations on this one.

Barry

What a cutie. It is hard to believe that people like that jerk exist. I guess a drive to the animal shelter was out of his way

If they catch the guy, I have some big plastic bags and you can use my truck to launch this jerk into the shallow end of the gene pool.

Angry Some people should be shot...

Congratulations on your new addition to your family... She is a beauty... The person or persons that did this cowardly and heinous act should be shot.. .. Hope they are caught and punished...

Welcome home little girl! Thank you so much for rescuing. As for the person who abandon these poor little souls, he will one day get his. Karma can be a b*tch. Be sure to post lots of pictures when you're able!

What a beautiful little puppy - congratulations on the new member of your family. It's great to know that her siblings received loving homes, too.

As for the jerk who did this, I believe there's a special place waiting for him...

Have taken a few pictures of the pup - we've named her Lexi. The name sounded a bit more feisty than Lea, which suits her better.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Yes the jerk needs what he did done to him for sure. What a great looking pup. Rescued pups are the best.

Where ever you are, there's a humane society or pound with several likely candidates all hoping someone like you will take them home......
