    I have a chance to save a dog.

    But choosing a dog is not something you do lightly. It's like adopting another child............and anybody that disagrees with me shouldn't have a dog.

    I've know this shepherd/bull mastiff mix for over 5 years. His initial owner, as a puppy in his formative years, was a drug addled fuck up. Who lived in filth and squalor.

    He's been jumped all over the place since....but that included 6 months with my daughter - who said he's just a frigging SWEETHEART of a dog, that just needs attention and love. But with quirks.

    He's now in the care of....2 people who hate him and don't want him. They want to put him to sleep. FFS.

    I have the room. I have the attention. I have....I hope...the patience and skills, or at least the intelligence to ask.

    I'm worried about the $$$ involved.

    I think I already know that I shouldn't.......but I will beat myself fucking senseless, if I just let this dog get put to sleep, because nobody can be bothered paying attention to his life.

    The vet that put my dog down sent me a plastered bone with his name and paw print. Got it in the mail today

    This is your only chance to redeem yourself after jinxing the Leafs.

    I took in a dog this past Sunday... got him food, a collar, leash, etc.

    Had a grand old time. Took him to Petsmart on Monday night and they found a chip in him. Contacted the owner and he picked up the pooch Monday night.

    I expect my good karma to win me the Powerball tonight.

    You put him DOWN???? Last I read in your too lengthy thread that I couldn't be bothered reading anymore...........was just that he was having possible kidney problems!!!

    I'm sorry Shiv. :( My condolences.

    maybe there is a middle ground, take him and help him get his shit together so that he's an adoptable dog--Sort of like a foster mom :dontknow:

    Well I for one won't berate you, gorgeous!!! If you have the $$ available for the food and vet bills, it actually sounds like it could be a good protective dog. One thing I will say... most vets won't put down a healthy young dog, so it may end up in the shelter instead. You're a smart woman- follow your head as well as your heart on this one!!

    Mlaw makes a good point here- maybe if you're not sure, you could foster this dog, work on his training and manners, etc. The only drawback is you may get attached to him and not be willing to adopt him out later.

    A fact that I skirted around, which makes things a little bit more difficult........is that he's currently in the care of my ex-husband (the initial owner was his drug-addled brother), and my daughter's father. They share an apartment. VERY uncomfortable.

    There will be no shared custody. I either decide, or I don't. And watch this frigging dog go down.

    <3 Sadly, Apple.....I might have to follow my bank account.

    Which just makes me feel horrible.

    We'll see which part of me speaks the loudest! ;) :flowers:

    The dog doesn't know any better. Just put it to sleep.

    Rescue a puppy if you want to rescue a dog.
