I dont see the big deal. sure, she should've done some research before buying a toy dog for a toddler.. but whats done is done and shes doing the best she can to find the dog a more suitable home
I would much rather see these ads then oh i dunno, a pomeranian wandering around the side of the road
As for kids, ya you can teach them to be gentle, but accidents do happen... even if the kid is trying and not doing it on purpose, for toy dogs all it takes is a really strong hug, or picking up and accidently being dropped to seriously injure a dog.
I hate these kinds of threads.. what is the point of them? to bash people who aren't even here to defend themselves..
Instead of this, maybe a NICE KIND email to her, suggesting a more suitable breed of dog as a companion for her and her son, why getting a dog for a child isn't the best idea, some training ideas etc.. would be more appropriate for all involved
If it wasn't for what i've learned on chaz. I would be picking dogs to buy/adopt based on looks alone lol id be a college student with a husky puppy or something being fed beneful!
