A woman rescued a dog on Saturday after its owner posted an ad on Craigslist threatening to shoot it if no one would take it of her hands.
Liz Pendleton was browsing Craigslist on Saturday when she came across an ad entitled: “Dog needs gone or shot.”
Liz Pendleton, a veterinary student with a passion for animals clicked on the ad which read the dog would be shot if it wasn’t gone by the end of the day.
Despite the fact that Liz could not provide a permanent home for the dog, she drove an hour and a half to Morrisonville, Illinois to rescue the dog.
‘It was an hour and a half, and the lady basically didn’t say anything,’ she told Fox2Now. There was no question I was going to get that dog.’
When Pendleton first patted the dog, who is about four years old, she said she could feel his ribs sticking out beneath his fur. She has named the German shepherd mix Buck and says he’s in need of a lot of love.
‘He deserves love and much more than he has been getting,’ she said Pendleton told Fox2Now that she has contacted the police in relation to the Craigslist ad but it’s unclear if any charges will be laid in the matter.
The animal lover is now looking for someone to adopt Buck and give him the home he deserves. She has set up an email address, email@example.com, where anyone interested in adopting can contact her.
