“I was just kind of looking around, looking for a possible owner and I noticed some wounds on his face,” Moulton said. “I knew something was up with this dog.”

The dog's owner then approached Moulton and started complaining about Nino and yelling at him.

“I asked him, ‘Do you want this dog? Do you want me to take this dog and help find it a new home?' And, he said, ‘Yeah.' He gave me the leash and he gave me a bag of food and took off.”

    Yeah, but kids aren’t the ones running around working and taking care of the house. I don’t think I’ve ever seen another family member give a family unit a puppy. It’s always from parents to their kids, so the parents know they can handle it.
