You R Dining Outdoors, a stray dog passes by… what do you do?!

By | March 30, 2011

Last weekend as we were dining outdoors in Spoons we heard a commosion behind us… people around us were fleeing their tables and running indoors… i whipped my head around to see a Lebanese guy holding a dog and walking him away from spoons…

So i thought ok… why did this guy bring his dog to Spoons in the first place to bother people!?

Two minutes later and the dog brushes by my chair… and of course being scared from dugs i jumped and ran behind my husband… to be frank the dog was small, cute, and trying to play with passers bay… he would run after the people walking and play with them by jumping playfully on their legs… people shrugged him off, restaurants waiters shooed him away, he ran all over the place and various waiters were running after him… it was a pandemonium that continued for a while until another guy took him away and i am guessing drove him off to a far place…

How did this dog become a stray dog?! If you have a dog as a pet you are responsible for taking good care of his puppies or of finding them a proper home… leaving him to starve on the streets is NOT OK!

Plus what do we do in this case? Who do we call!? If we call the police would they come?! What would they do y3ni? Shoot him?! maskeen 7ram!

What do we do in this case? Isn’t there a number to call where they would come and collect the dog in a humane way and give him food and shelter and keep him off the streets until a proper home is found for him instead of having him roam the streets!?

I have a cat at home.. and I would call the dog and try to feed it and maybe play with it a little ..you see a dog is not fearsful by nature it only becomes one when it’s beeing anoyed and abused .. and boy dont we always do thatto animals.its actually a very loyal and kind animal to people

    I SERIOUSLY don’t understand the way people react to dogs here. Seriously. I have a tiny black & white dog and people LITERALLY run away from it scared to death whenever I am walking him in the street. He’s not a pitbull for Goodness sake! Yeah, he’s really going to murder someone with one bite. Don’t people know it looks ridiculous when they act that way??? I agree with Nawal, a dog is an innocent animal and it only wants to be friendly. Humans are the ones who make them aggressive.

      P: Well i can’t speak for other people… but i for one am scared of all animals… including birds, insects, cats, chicks, goats, sheep, camels, and dogs… so even if a cat or a pigeon passes by i would flee… it’s a fear i cannot control…

      but for other people i would be guessing that since dogs have sharp teeth and eat bones it would scare them more than birds?

      3ad this dog was very happy and just wanted to play with people… maskeen kesar kha6ry

    There is a place called that works as an animal shelter in Q8. I think its PAWS (http://paws-kuwait.org/blog/). Its out in Wafra and they will take in strays and try and find them new homes.
