As I was driving home only about a mile from my farm and in the road is this doberman. I’ve never seen her on any of the farms around here. She doesn’t have a collar on and she has a lump (possibly tumor) on her side. She came right over to me and she’s very friendly. She jumped into the back of my truck. I took her home and she ate ravenously. She walked into the house like she owned the place. She’s getting along with my four other dogs. I’d keep her in a heartbeat except I lost my job and I really can’t afford another dog (with the accompanying vet bills). I figure she may have been dumped.
She’s very sweet but has virtually no chance in the local dog pound. On one hand, with two cats, four dogs and a horse, what’s one more pet? On the other hand, I have no job and two mortgage payments. I have a soft squishy spot in my heart for dobes (my oldest dog is a doberman, and his health is failing. I figure he’s at least 14 years old).
What should I do?
