Default Life is so unfair

So I'm browsing craigslist like I should so often not do, and I see a posting for "free wonderful dog to good home". I click. I look at the picture and think, "Man, that is a gorgeous dog. Looks kind of familiar." Then I read the information.

Quote:
I'm trying to find a good home for one of my dogs. As much as I'd love to keep him I can't... His name is fuzz. He's almost three yours old. Half rottweiler half pitbull. He is a very loving dog and needs lots of love. Good with kids. Serious inquiries only please. If you are not responsible do not reply to this post..


My heart just stops. I work at a boarding clinic, and we had two Rottweiler/Pit Bull mixes board fairly regularly for awhile. One's name was Fuzz (his sister looked more Pit than Rott and had a weird name I couldn't pronounce). He would be about three now. I was absolutely head over heels in love with that dog. He was BRILLIANT. Great temperament, great build, so happy to see whom he dubbed as his person, actually on the small side (maybe Chloe's size), kind of shy until he warmed up to you but when he did, he was a complete and total love bug. I remember thinking when they went home (owner was a couple days late to pick them up) that I should mention something about wanting to take him home myself, so if for some reason they ever couldn't keep him they'd think of me. My heart just about broke when I took the dogs up and Fuzz immediately went into shy "I don't really know you, but I'll be happy to see if you are nice to me" mode when he saw his owners and tried to stay by me.

I think I'm going to contact the person and see if it is the same dog. Offer to help if I can. I would hate for him to go to someone that couldn't offer him the best. But I don't know what I can do with the current situation being the way it is.

Fingers crossed that this guy gets his perfect home?

Yup, it is the same Fuzz. His owner is going through a divorce and has to place some of his dogs.

So yes, find a good home vibes are greatly appreciated!

I really wish I could just take him. Gosh darn it. I absolutely fell in love with this dog and if things hadn't gone the way they had, I'd be figuring out a way to pick him up asap. I'm still tempted...but I just can't justify it. Sometimes I wish I could just throw caution to the wind and say, "Screw it, what happens, happens, I'm going to do it!" but I'm just not built that way. *sigh* A friend of my brother's has five large dogs (three of them puppies), rents, and is expecting his first child and he makes it work...but gosh dang it, I just can't justify it right now. Sure, I'd have two dogs with me and Mike would have three dogs with him, so it wouldn't be all five dogs at once, but when we are at each other's place we'd have five dogs running around...and of course, high probability that next winter we'll be living together...please, someone, tell me that I am a good girl to be responsible.

Anybody want a Fuzz to call their own? Then I could get picture updates! ^^

Oh... he's so handsome! <3 I do hope you're able to help out... Maybe you can foster him? Though then you REALLY wouldn't want to let him go, I bet!

I'm one of those people with NO caution or warning signals preventing me from doing things... If I were in your shoes, the dog would already be at my house... THEN I'd start thinking about where to go from there!
