It was a typical day for Lizzy, who works at the Villalobos Rescue Center, a facility which saves dogs and finds perfect homes for them. Her co-worker, Earl, came in with a Bulldog. Earl said he found it just outside their property. It was tied, with bowls of food and water.
The Bulldog looked healthy and well taken cared of. He was even neutered. Lizzy held a device which scanned for microchips, to see if the dog has been registered. The machine beeped positively. Why would someone take care of a dog, then leave them outside their rescue center? Lizzy wondered.
Lizzy called the microchip company. They confirmed that the Bulldog’s name was “Tchoup” (pronounced: Chop) and they left a voicemail on the registered owner’s number.
Less than a minute later, Lizzy’s phone rang. It was from an unknown number. She answered the call, and she was surprised to found out who it was:
It was the Bulldog’s previous owner, named John. John went on to explain that he was re-assigned to Texas, and there was no place for Tchoup in their new home. So he decided to sign him up for adoption at Craigslist. Lizzy rolled her eyes. You don’t just put an ad up for your dog on Craigslist like some piece of furniture!
John went on and told Lizzy that he wants to get the dog back. Lizzy was apprehensive. She’s not sure if Tchoup will be in good hands with this so-called John. She sought her Manager’s advice. The Manager, a wise, brazen, old lady told Lizzy that she wants to talk to this John and look at him straight in the eyes to see if he’s sincere.
D-day came, and John was strolling toward the Villalobos Rescue Center and had a serious talk with the Manager. He explained about the Craigslist situation and told her that he met with the guy who responded to the ad for Tchoup. He seemed like a nice guy– Tchoup even took a liking for him. He never realized that the guy would abandon their poor pet.
Did the Manager feel John’s sincerity? Or did she think that John is a lying skank? Find out in the video below:
