would you adopt a street dog?

If I thought that I would be able to pay for the upkeep of the dog, then yes, of course I would adopt it. Actually, the dog we have now was a street dog of sorts. She was about 8 weeks old when I found her, or rather, she found us. It was early on a Saturday morning and I was trying very hard to get some much needed sleep, but all I could hear was a puppy barking outside our bedroom window. So, I looked out and told it to go home, cuz I figured that it's owner must be walking down the street or something. Well, after a while the barking had ceased, so I assumed the puppy had gone home. Boy was I wrong! I had gone outside cuz I had heard the barking again a bit later in the morning, but this time it was outside our back door. The poor little thing was hiding under our deck! We had to give our landlords a huge sum of money so they would let us keep her. BUT she was worth every single penny! We all love her very much and she protects us and our home every day. We've had her for two and a half years, and really I can't remember what it was like to be dogless.

i adopted one puppy from the street 2 years ago. Actually, there were 5 puppies left in the box, but because of my local community's rules in which each household is only allowed 2 registered dogs, I wasn't able to take the rest home. I gave the remaining 4 puppies to the pound. I would suggest you to pick one up too, since X'mas is drawing near. Do good to others and good will come to you. That's how karma works. =D
