Have you ever found a homeless animal like a dog or cat and stopped to pick it up and take it home? or maybe just stop to give it some food? or taook it to a shelter or just did something good for the poor homeless animal? I myself have stopped many times and fed the homeless dogs for I always carry a large bag of dogfood in the van and a couple of can dog food. and I have taken one or two dogs home with me, as a matter of fact they are still with years they turned out to be real good house pets and they are potty-trained and very obedient. I just wish some more people would adopt the homeless animals that are running on the cold streets hungry and scared. I love dogs and wish I had the resources to take them all in and let them be happy. Tell me mylot members especially you dog and animal lovers like me speak out and answer this discussion for Id like to know how many of you have a big heart for dogs like I do.. I hope you will participate in this discussion and speak out, dont be shy?//

All the time when I was a nipper. I used to see a dog looking hungry and lonely I would take it home and often someone would come and take it away to the dogs home. That rarely happens now in the UK as most dogs who stray are often picked up and taken to the police station or rescue centres. A few months ago we had two Staffies wandering around out front so my wife and I herded then both into our back garden. Soon there was someone passing by looking for them and took them away home. My wife went home with them in case they were bogus but they were not.
