@MrsPanda99:  Wow, that’s awful and wonderful at the same time! I hope you keep him. It sounds like fate. 🙂 We recently had a little min pin come clawing at our door of our new house… so we brought him inside and posted an ad on Craigslist saying we found him. We figured if no one claimed him, we would keep him. But someone claimed him the next day 🙁

Awww, I’m glad your husband helped the puppy! I would have bawled if I’d witnessed that.

In other news, your vets do surgery on dogs for free? Or did your hubs and you foot the vet bill? (I know you’re in Canada so I was just wondering if it’s different than it would be here. Surgery is expensive!)

@MrsPanda99:  Congrats on your new puppy! What a great story!

My Dad and uncle were driving in Vermont many years ago to go snowmobileing (I know I spelled that wrong). On the way, they hit a dog.

My uncle was HORRIFIED and couldn’t stop crying! But my Dad (who was driving) never stopped (Despite feeling the dog go under the truck, then under the TWO trailers)

10 years later, my Dad attacked two people with a chainsaw!

Moral of the story: People who don’t stop for dogs they hit are terrible people 😛

Awww, bless your hearts!! I’ve heard a few devastating dog abuse cases within the last few days, so THANK YOU so much for sharing such a good one.  This pup will be so lucky to have you guys.

What an asshole! The guy who didn’t stop deserves to be run over himself. Jackass. People like that really piss me off. 

Anyway, you guys are doing a sweet thing and that poor dog is lucky your fiancé was there when he was. Good luck to the little guy!

@MrsPanda99:  That is so nice of you guys, you guys are great animal people. 🙂 I’d have a menagerie out on a farm away from people if I could too, lol. I also tend to prefer animals over people. Animals love unconditionally and don’t care what you look like or how much you weigh or what you say to them, they just want to be your friend.

I would have paid the bill too if I had been in that situation, I just couldn’t let a poor innocent animal get ignored because someone couldn’t pay for him. <3 I am so glad you guys did the right thing. 

I hope you get to keep him and fix him up proper and make him a member of your family!!

@MrsPanda99:  They might try to contact the local Humane Society. It depends on your area and how budget restricted they are. For some areas with a small budget and overwhelming number of dogs animals that aren’t adoptable with a small amount of medical care are often put to sleep, they simply cannot afford to get them healthy.

I can’t imagine hitting any animal and not stopping. How lucky that puppy was to have you there! Looking forward to photos of your potential new pup.
