What a scary story, SO glad that Dempsey is going to be all right. I have my Corgi on a leash in unfamiliar territory, especially in a guest's back yard. I'd worry if I didn't. (She likes to dig under fences). Thanks, Cher for a good story with my coffee this morning. ;-)

I love Boxers, but they are very active, curious and will chase just about anything. My neighbor has one, and we're constantly corralling him. You cannot just let your dogs runn -- I don't care how much open area you have around them. There's too many enticing things that can cause them to be lost and suffer needlessly.

Dempsey has a guardian angel. Actually many. The whole town where he was lost. It was amazing the man who hit him stopped. It is wonderful that the first though that went thru that lady's mind was Dempsey. He is a wonderful dog, as are most boxers, and a very lucky dog. Hope he gets well real soon. Dempsey is well loved.

Glad this baby has a happy ending. I think everyone who intensionally leaves their animals in the cold and heat need to be fined, and never be able to have another animal again.

So very glad that precious life is okay after all he had to endured. I totally agree with Dianne D. that people need to be fined and punished for leaving these innocent victims in freezing weather, there is no excuse for this, they should be in the house where it is warm and safe, they are family. And if they can't do that they should NEVER be allowed to have another pet. How would they like to be tied up outside in the wind and cold, maybe an eye for an eye would work for them better so they would understand what these poor animals go through.

So glad Dempsey was found and is now back in the arms of those who loved him! But, my heart goes out to all the other dogs that may be lost in the cold out there! Please if you see a dog walking around in the cold and he isn't with anyone, remember he may be lost. If you can look at this tag and see who he belongs to, please call because he may be lost. If he doesn't have a tag or seems stray, give him food and shelter and think about fostering him, or call animal control if you just can't. But, please don't ignore animals you see that are out in freezing temps. as there's a good chance that they are lost or stray!

You don't know how much happy I'm first to know that this creature is safe but also to know that this world is not in the hand only to the evil, there are a lot of good and compassionate people!! Thanks a lot for sharing Cher.
