No dog should have such a life of neglect and misery...and if i see a dog on a chain outside--especially in the winter well i'm taking this poor dog with me and i've done before several times. Soldier boy is a cutie! Keeping fingers crossed 4 him. Thanks Suju

Thank you, Nicole! That is animal abuse, and it's against the law! I wish I lived there or knew someone who does, but I don't. Oh, this just breaks my heart! What is wrong with people?

" In fact, he has even seen the two dogs he was chained outside with for all that time to be adopted. Soldier Boy sits and waits sadly, hoping, praying that one day someone will come for him…because they want him."

Poor baby. I will post to my croosposting and networking friends on Facebook and hope with some additional nice, loving, people seeing him, that maybe he will find that home..."because they want him."

Noting and sharing with hope. Thanks Nicole for the forward and Suju for your posting.

Lynn, I am sooooo glad to see you are better TODAY. Thanx for bringing him from the archives. He is very lucky to still be alive. He is VERY URGENT, PLEASE SHARE, not just like. Liking does not save a dog sharing does. Thanx also pledging. What that means is you will pledge to give some money to help defray the cost of the dog to the rescue that takes him/them. This saves dogs/cats in this cash strapped economy. Any amount I see a lot of 5 and 10 dollars pledges. Trust me they add up.

I wish I could have him but I only have a small apartment and it is no place for an animal, not even a yard.
He needs room to romp and play.

Noted, this is a classic example of what happens when there are too many private breeders churning out puppies for profit. There should be heavy regulations concerning private breeders until the numbers in animal shelters and rehoming centres are able to be reduced. This is the only way to avoid this situation happening and even worse, perfectly rehomeable dogs being put down due to cost or overcrowding, thanks for sharing Nicole and Suju for posting.

If people cannot give a pet a proper home, they should not have a pet. Being chained its entire life outside thru all the weather and heat and cold, is no way for a dog to be forced to live. I hate seeing animals on chains, cold and lonely, and hungry and thirsty. It's like the owners forget to feed and water them, they are just an afterthought once in awhile. Shame on them. Hope this poor dog finds people with real hearts.

NOTED & SHARED! OK, let's hear from the New Yorkers here in this area and let's get this precious pup outta there, even if just to foster him and let him know he is out of danger! You know it's like having 1 kid and it may seem expensive but when you have two, it really doesn't cost anymore to feed two mouths than just one...Point being, please someone in our care2 community, give this dog a shot at life.Again, even if just to home foster while you network for a forever home for him...He will never forget that person who saved his life and your heart will be overflowing with joy over the victory of having saved one in spite of all the horrors of those not so luck! So, c'mon New Yorkers, if anyone can pull it off, you guys are tops in that!!!

Poor baby...people stink. Okay, only those who neglect, abuse, and harm dogs in their care. I hate some of the things I have read. Poor soldier boy....he deserves to be happy now. He surely has suffered long enough. what the hell kind of life did he have in the heat, no compainship. No one to give him cookies, a gentle pat on the head, telling him what a good boy he was...yeah, I hate some people. I breathed a sigh of relief that at last he was rescued. Thank you to the kind person who did please, somebody give him a forever home.....please...

read and noted on 9-17-13 humans should be on chains if you can not physically take proper care of any animal then you should give up all your rights to said animal and find them a better home no animal deserved to be chained up for any given length of time these are the folks that never should be allowed to own any sort of animal our laws need to be strengthened so that animal cruelty comes to a stop.

Shared again yesterday. I'm trying to find out if he still hasn't found a home. I cant understand why not. He is so beautiful - I wish I could take him but cant have dogs in a rental trailer w/mo to mo lease. I would love him and can't understand why no one has chosen him except that he is safe and there are so many who are not. safe. So many who will die tomorrow, and the next day and the day after that because there is no one to take them. More and more Americans are losing their homes (probably in other countries as well) with the economy the way it is and with no where to go for their families and their pets the shelters are getting more dogs and adoptions are down because there are less people with secure homes to welcome new dogs. It is a terrible situation. I just hope that poor boy were remain safe and until someone takes him home. I just wish it could be me. .
