New homes for Hudson and Pearl

mohawk hudson railroad puppiesThe Mohawk Hudson Humane Society says it's picked two families -- from the dozens who applied -- to adopt Pearl and Hudson, the puppies who were found on railroad tracks in North Albany in September suffering serious from injuries. (Hudson was the puppy fitted with a prosthetic leg.) Mohawk Hudson says there have been no arrests in the case -- which also included a third puppy who didn't survive -- and there's still a $7000 reward for info.

While I am happy they have found both dogs good homes, I wish they were going to the same home together after all they've been through. Maybe the new adoptive families will keep in touch with one another and have puppy play dates so the siblings can stay a part of each others lives.

There should be no wishing they were going together. People are imposing human emotions on these dogs. They will be just fine separated. Heck you don't even know if they were in the same foster home together and having met them they are just dandy little pups who don't seem to even remember the violence that was inflicted upon them.

These dogs have the best chance of success being separated, as keeping litter mates is a terrible terrible idea. (and the families have the best chance of being successful if they don't have to undertake all the responsibilities that come with making a puppy into a good canine citizen--do you really think it sounds like fun to have to house break 2 puppies....oh the joys of cleaning up synchronized puppy poops and tag team puppy brain destruction rampages, and the rambunctious jumping that pittie pups are known for...times two)

Nevermind the financial burden of having 2 puppies who need food, training, toys, vaccines, heartworm preventative, flea/tick preventative, vet care...The key to these puppies success is setting up their humans for success.

Thank you Colleen for having some common sense, its annoying to hear everyone complain that they have to be adopted together and they are so upset that they were broken up. They are much better off being adopted out to separate homes.

Glad they finally got to go home.

And look at what Brad Shear said too:

Well so sorry for my "lack of common sense" then.
