Dog rescued after owner posts Craigslist ad, threatens to shoot it by day’s end
Question of the Day
A Missouri woman rescued a 4-year-old German shepherd mix on Saturday after its owner posted an ad on Craigslist threatening to shoot the dog if no one took it by the end of the day.
"In the description it said they had no use for the dog and if no one came and got it they would shoot," Liz Pendleton, of University City, Mo., told a local Fox affiliate.
Shocked by the ad, the veterinary student drove from University City to Morrisonville, Ill., to pick up the dog.
"It was an hour and a half [drive], and the lady basically didn't say anything," she said. "There was no question I was going to get that dog."
Ms. Pendleton told the station that she notified police about the ad. She said she can't care for the dog permanently, so she is hoping someone else can.
"He deserves love and much more than he has been getting," she said.
Ms. Pendleton named the dog "Buck," the station reported.
