I found the cutest pre-owned dog
At our local pound
He looked at me as if to say
Please don't let them put me down

His tail wagged ... I saw him smile
Happy as can be
Did I come to pick a dog today
Or did he just pick me

I decided to check out other dogs
Before making up my mind
But no other seemed to greet me
Like that little friend of mine

A pre-owned pet that someone left
Perhaps 3 years old or more
But I didn't care how old he was
As we both walked out the door

And as we got into my pre-owned car
Just before I started to drive
We both looked at one another
Knowing he'd always be by my side

Adopt a pet from your local pound
and save a life
