Bitches Ain't Shit

Do you see this dog?  This adorable dog, half Great Dane and half German Shepherd?

This dog was scheduled to be put down in a pound when a lady from a pit rescue found him.  The reason he was being put down?  Because of his size and breed.  No other reason.  So she took him in but had no room to board him amongst her other rescues.

So I took him.  We have a small house, two dogs and a cat already, but I could not let him be put down.  Look at that face!  He is a sweet heart, and I fell in love.

Patrick and I immediately began looking for a new home for this pup.  I put out ads, we called friends, family, and coworkers, knowing we could not be his permanent owners.  And finally, someone responded that fit the bill.

They were a young couple, married about a year.  They had a chow and a pekingese, and wanted to find a third dog to round out there house.  Perfect!  They came, met him, and took him home, all in one night.

I checked on them a couple of times, just making sure everything was working.  Everyone was happy.  Everything was fine.  So I checked it off as a successful placement.

But then I got an email yesterday.

The couple have just found out they are pregnant.  And Hank (that's the pup) is just going to be too much for them to handle.  So they need to give him back to me, so I can find him a new home.

I'm sorry?  What?

If you had any indication to believe that a baby added to your mix would be too much, you shouldn't have gotten the dog, or you shouldn't have gotten knocked up.  One or the other.  I am a firm believer in getting a pet and keeping a pet.  You do not suddenly decide you have tired of your family member, then drop your responsibilities off on someone else.  This is most likely how he wound up at the pound to begin with.

I told her I appreciated the email and her not just taking him to the animal shelter to be put to sleep.  But then I explained that he was their responsibility, and they should find him a good new home.  Because obviously I had not done so well in the first place.  Which may sound harsh, but I have a soft spot for animals.  But if the pound is their last option, I won't allow that to happen.  

We'll just have to squeeze him in somewhere between the bookshelf and television.

If you think you want a dog, send me your information, and I'll forward it on to her and her husband.  I don't want Hank back at the pound and on death row again.

I am so sorry that those people did that! I have been involved in dog rescue and have a rescued Pit and a little rescued Boston Terrier Mix who is terrified of everyone. Both of them would have suffered the same fate as your beautiful Hank if they hadn't gotten out when they did. I wish so much that I were in a position to take him for you!

My husband and I are splitting up and I thought I might have to find a new home for my Boxer but i just cant. I cant imagine anyone appreciating her as much as I do. Instead I am just gonna find a house that has a fenced yard where she can have fun.

I am right there with you! I love animals and would never be able to give on to a pound or let it be put down for no reason at all. This january I found a puppy, only 1 years old and a border collie mix, nothing was wrong with him but the pet stores couldn't sell him quick enough so the pound was going to put him down. I put my foot down and said "hell no!", so I adopted him. It's horrible that people think that animals are just something you can give up. To me, they literally should be considered a member of your family, not just an object to toss around when life gets hard. Keep it up! That's awesome! I would say I would rescue Hank but unfortunately my apartment won't allow anymore animals. :(

I appreciate all the pet loving people commenting. I have found a couple of homes around our area that may work and forwarded them to the couple. I haven't heard back from them yet, but maybe they'll find him a place.

I want sooo badly to have Hank. My heart is breaking. I am in Phoenix, AZ. There is no way I could feasible get him and take him into my townhouse here in Arizona. Please let me know if he finds a home. He is so adorable, and as an animal lover I can't imagine someone taking him only to give him away again.
