Cara was left along a highway in Brimfield three weeks ago.
(Brimfield) - Good news for Cara!
The deaf Jack Russell terrier puppy rescued by Brimfield Police in January is available for adoption.
Cara is deaf, but does very well mimicking the other dogs in her foster home. She follows the pack; however, she is a typical Jack Russell mix breed dog. She is very, very high energy and is a handful; therefore, she will need a patient and kind handler that is interested in learning how to help her bridle her energy and learn a special “silent” language that they will share for her lifetime. A home with other well-behaved dogs is ideal for her progression because she will learn her manners much quicker in this environment.
Brimfield Police Chief David Oliver posted on Facebook in mid-January, "If you are the person who dropped this puppy off, I am willing to speak with you about your error in judgement....if you call us first. If we have to find you, the time for talking will be with a judge..."
WTAM spoke to Chief Oliver and asked why pursue this? Oliver says whoever is willing to abandon a deaf puppy alongside a busy road has a severe character flaw. He says the person or persons will face animal cruelty charges if they're caught. Oliver also thinks the people responsible should be sentenced to work in a pound or shelter.
Chief Oliver also posted a message to people critical of the police department working on an abandoned dog case, "For the select few of you who busted our chops about "doing police work" instead of looking out for a puppy left on the side of the road in a box....pound salt. Police work is serving the community...in anyway possible. Go back to surfing the web and find another site to comment on; we banned trolls last year."
In the meantime, if a lost dog is turned into the Brimfield Police Department, its picture and description will be posted on Facebook.
After all, not every lost dog has been abandoned. There's always a chance for a happy ending.
Cara sure has one!
