Cross-eyed Rottweiler

One day, a man takes his Rottweiler to the vet.
“What seems to be the problem today?” the vet asks.
“My dog’s cross-eyed. I was wondering if there’s anything you can do for him?”
“Well,” says the vet, “let’s just have a look at him and see what we can do.”
So he picks the dog up and examines his eyes, then checks his teeth. Finally, he tells the man, “I’m afraid I’m going to have to put him down.”
“What? Just because he’s cross-eyed?”
“No, because he’s really heavy”

      1. Ours isn’t no kill, but it is open admission. That means they will take any animal that is brought in, and they also do large-scale rescues. The downside of that is that open admission shelters can’t really be no kill. But the good news is that the shelter I volunteer for only euthanizes for a health issue that can’t be healed, aggression, or (rarely, but it happens) “quality of life” which is when a dog is just miserable 24/7, no matter what we do. They don’t euthanize for space, and there is no limit for how long a dog can stay until it finds a home. We had one dog that was there for 13 months, but she finally was adopted!
        Sometimes I do get discouraged, but I always remember that the work we do saves lives and make the dogs’ stay at the shelter a much more positive experience. And I live for the day that shelter are no longer needed!
