No news!! It's hard for me not to say what I really want to say. When I first offered to take the dog, I replied a few minutes after they had said something, so I know they had to see my reply. Giving them the benefit of doubt, I figured they were thinking about the offer, but now that it's hours later, I'm starting to think they're playing games on our emotions. What else are we supposed to think?

I have a feeling they have either already made their decision to put him down or maybe even did it, so they're not replying. Poor guy.....I hope they respond, fingers are still crossed over here!!

I'm speechless. I feel so sorry for this poor puppy. I've never been in the position of having to rehome my pets, and hope I never will be, so don't understand the emotions attached to it but I would try my hardest to ensure that my family pet went to the best possible home. There is a solution being offered and the OP hasn't taken it? I don't understand

trestro, I have asked a few friends and a few family members on my boyfriends side. I'm only asking people who of course I know will love and take care of him. Unfortunetaly, most of those I have asked just can't take in another dog right now I will keep asking most definetaly and let you know if I find anyone interested!

I am not one to get involved with "forum drama" but when it comes to the life of another animal I do feel the need to say this..
You chose to bring this animal, friend, and family member into your life. Thus meaning you made a promise to him to love him, feed him, provide and take care of him. The least you can do on your behalf is to make finding him a new home that will keep that promise for the rest of his life, your number one priority. You owe it to him seeing as you could not keep that promise that all dog owners make when taking in a new pet. I do understand that circumstances have made it to where you can no longer provide for him how you see fit, but is that his fault? No, it isn't. HE does NOT deserve to die, he is an innocent animal who has done nothing but have unconditional love for you. Don't give up on him. I've seen plenty of people interested to take him in. Give him a chance to have a life, have someone who will love him and provide for him like he very so much deserves.


Sorry for the short novel, not trying to start anything what so ever. Just thought it may help if you see things through a different perspective, through his perspective maybe?

Anywho, I will let you know if I find anyone interested and I will continue my search!

This is terrible. It's one thing to have to rehome your dog. Life happens and sometimes it cannot be help despite our wishes.

It's quite another to tell people that are willing to take your dog in and provide it an excellent life "no" for whatever reason. Especially when Lisa so kindly offered an option that would have cost OP nothing. OP really didn't have a reason to give up the dog other than he was traveling. Such a shame.

I truly hope the dog doesn't die, but I fear the worst.

To be honest I prefer to think it's some kind of a sick joke or something, I refuse to believe a person like this is real.
The poor innocent chis is -not worth it. I can believe he actually wrote that
