Lost Dog Found - Feel Good

This dog showed up at my neighbor's house three days ago. He's mostly blind and has a hard lump on his back. My neighbor took him to the vet to be scanned for a chip. They mentioned the lump was concerning. So now he's got this pit bull, possibly dying, who can't see.. but this dog is phenomenal. Like a heart of gold and I'm not kidding.

He's clearly been cared for.  How could his family dump him?

My neighbor called all vets, all shelters, put him on all lists all over the place and nothing.

He can't keep the dog because he has a (jealous) dog. His heart was breaking.

I went and spent time with him the last two days. My husband said, "no". He knew he would get attached and then have to watch him die.  Never mind we have four dogs already!

My neighbor found two families who said they would take him... he is that sweet. One backed out but the other was going to get him today, at 9 am.

Well, my neighbor work up to some texts from the owner who found the pics he posted... they live an hour away!  He was stolen!

His name is "Tater".

As you can see, he is their "fat boy".  Apparently, he loves the word, "doodle".

So my neighbor is beside himself. He's been stressed out of his mind over this dog. Last night he was praying and praying and praying... and now, this morning, Tate, is going home!

Dog thieves are low.

The dog was just picked up. The little by ran and hugged him.  Owner said, "Wanna doddle?". Dog whooped for joy!

I was thinking... someone dognapped, Tater, on Monday. They live a good 45 drive from here. It's thought they didn't know he was blind?  So they dumped a blind dog????

No clue how that dog made it this far; if he was dropped off near here or what. But he did not show up here until Friday. wth

So glad for a happy ending story!  But stolen!!!  Why?  Did the thief have a personal beef against the owner?  Or take the dog for fighting, to sell, for bait?  I hope and pray the family will tighten up security.

@warped no clue. He was just... gone. For six days!
That poor family. The woman was texting my neighbor overnight.

But dumping a super kind, blind dog... well, my husband said he would kill a man for doing that and he means it.

You could tell he was old... and should be able to see he's blind. His eyes were solid aquamarine. Not fighting? Breeding? He had his balls which... well, I'd not seen a dog with balls in 30 years! I was taken aback.

Anyway, the dog was touched in some way. We get a lot of strays here but I have never gone to visit one over there, never mind spend time there and go back the next day. It's was odd all the way around.  

The neighbor left notes on doors all over - anyone who had animals outside. He was heartsick. But then he started praying hard... for his back lump to be okay and his family to come get him and he woke to good news!
