Thanks guys. I feel really awful about it.. ..

even tho I know he will have a great life.

I think when I get another dog I will get an adult maybe from
a golden rescue.

That's a good idea! It's what I'm planning to do for my next dog.

I've had about an equal number of adult rescues and puppies. I love the puppies; they're everything puppies should be, but I have to say there is something very special about the adults I've rescued. If it weren't for not putting Bimmer in a potentially dangerous situation by bringing in adult dogs that outweigh him 2:1 (he being The Top Dawg in his view of the world) who might challenge his position, I'd be rescuing adult Filas.

I'll have to admit, too, that Fila puppies, although they have their own unique pecadillos, don't seem to be as much of a problem in some of the more frustrating ways of the more bouncing-off-the-walls breeds. I don't know that I'd be up for dealing with a puppy like a Lab or Retriever or Border Collie.

Golden Rescues have so many great dogs ! You can always foster to make sure it's the right dog for you. Also, our Indiana Rescue ( Grrace.org ) will refund your money if before 2 weeks the golden isn't working out. Dogs have all their shots, spade or neutered so a lot of the costs are already covered.
