ADOPT ME!!! IM FREE!!! I NEED A HOME!!!

If anyone in the Austin area is interested in adopting a very cute and very affectionate puppy PLEASE message me. I’m moving out in a few weeks and can’t take him with me and my mom refuses to take care of him and is threatening to take him to the pound.

This lil pup responds to the name “chester” as well as “lil nugget” and loves to give kisses. He isn’t neutered, was covered in fleas and was severely underweight when I found him on the side of the road last week. 

IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ADOPT THIS CUTE LIL PUP, AT LEAST REBLOG!! THANK YOU! :)

Brimfield PD (Ohio) - This is the new puppy at training today….we don’t think the bullet proof vest fits….just yet

Cops need to fuck off with this K-9 shit.Dogs are awesome and sweet, stop turning them into tools of oppression and subjugation.

And especially stop using cruelty and abuse* to do it.
*Often called “training” in the industry.

One of the vet’s offices I worked for was the go-to animal clinic for police dogs in the city where I used to live. Every, single one of those dogs was completely out of control and prone to attacking both humans and pets. Their “training” (which we saw examples of multiple times… it often consisted of slapping the dog or “dominance” bullshit) apparently didn’t include an off switch.
In the 3 years I worked for that particular clinic, we had at least 6 fights between K-9 police and other animals and 2 bites because their handlers insisted they had them under control. After the second (serious) bite, we had to require all K-9 officers to be muzzled upon entering the clinic. 
There were at least 2 handlers who actively encouraged their dogs to bark at the cats boarding there through the glass to the cat room. I had to ask one of them 4 times to stop, and he told me he was “just letting the dog have a little fun” and that “it won’t hurt the fucking cats,” before pouting like a child in the waiting room.
Fuck. All. Cops.

These dogs are a mess from start to finish. They’re intentionally bred to be over-the-top and out of control (people like to call it “drive” but a biological drive is different from being constantly over the stimulus threshold all the time). The training makes it even worse, and what you end up with is a majority of K-9 and military dogs that are completely untrustworthy time bombs.

What makes it almost worse is the department we worked with imported GSD/malinois mixes for 20,000 dollars plus per dog. Then, if that dog didn’t “pass” their abusive, nasty training course, they—get this—gave them away to local families for “protection.”
Talk about time bombs. Shit’s unimaginably irresponsible.

So here’s my dog, Lani. She insists on laying on the smaller bed she’s outgrown, instead of the gigantic one that takes up most of the floor. Yup…. #goldenretriever  #idontunderstand #adorable

I whole heartedly believe that my dog Mr. Bojangles is the dog equivalent to tarter sauce (aka grumpy cat)
