Default Need help placing our Chihuahua

Hi there,

We have a 7 year old male who we are looking for a new home for. We've had him since he was 8 weeks old, now with 2 young children and jobs that require a fair amount of time away we don't feel it's fair to him to be crated/boarded all the time.

I've tried reaching out to a few small dog rescues in the Atlanta area, but I can't get a response from anyone. I would appreciate any advice anyone might have to help us out.

Thanks for your time.

This just breaks my heart. He thinks he is part of your family...he HAS been for 7 years. If he could speak, he would say it was alright to stay home and wait for you to come home from work...I know you have love in your heart for him because you came here. You and your family are his EVERYTHING.

at that age they really do just sleep all day while you are gone. they don't want much,
just to be near you
If you must be out of town, and Board him, could you possibly find a family/friend
who would take him in during those times you are away? sort of a dog-share...
there are people who cannot take on a dog full time who would love to share
a pet in this way.

How can you bear to give a dog that has loved you and your fanmily for 7 yeasrs over to a rescue shelter, there must be some way you could keep him, if not why can't you find him a new home rather than give him over to a shelter. He is your dog he loves you, he trusts you to do the right thing for him. Please reconsider.

It's so hard for even a rescue to place an older dog with all the puppies out there. Older dogs sleep alot do not require alot of care really unless they have health issues. I hope you can work something out to keep your baby. But if you must you can post her here on the Atlanta Chi rescue page. I wish I could help you out since I am in the Atlanta area but we just recently added a new one to our family already. Georgia Chihuahua Rescue ADOPTIONS *RescueMe.Org
