I have no need to make myself look good or you look bad. Like I said, I don't even know you. I suggest that if, as you say,your main purpose here is to rehome your dog, you try petfinder or something. This is not a place where we usually exchange dogs. Good luck.

If thats true then why are there thousands of threads looking for homes for dogs that people can nolonger care for, for one reason or another? As for Petfinder, I dont trust them. Too many scams going around.

It isn't true, and I am sorry. I thought this was in the open forum for some reason. You, however, very appropriatly put it in the rescue section, where it does indeed belong. I know what you mean about petfinder, but no matter where and how you wind up placing the dog, you will have to screen heavily in order to avoid scams. It isn't easy.

I am just trying to find a decent home for my dog where he can be loved and cared for. I thought of all places that this would be the best place to find that home. But since i put up this ad, all I been getitng is people replying and making me feel like its a sin to rehome my dog. Given the reason i need to do this, I dont call it abandonment. I call it doing whats best for a child that I love, and inreturn, finding my dog a home where he wont feel threatened by having another dog in his home.

what I don't get here, it's NOT YOUR DOG! Does this child live with you?

So you want to get rid of the dog w/o wanting to give it a try?

No, but the child will be living with me, his mother and his older brother very shortly. I dont understand what that has to do with anything? Noone questioned anyone else about why they're having to rehome their pet, but you're questioning me. Why is that?

I dunno.. You tell me you're the one wants to get rid of the dog! You haven't mention anything about if your brother has any kind of saying etc

Animals are not an disposable for any insignificant reason. Why bother having a dog that you don't want to have any kind apart with the dog? If you don't want to have to do any kind of training. Maybe you don't deserve to have animals at all! You should be banned of having animals!

Who the hell are you to critisize me?! Noone made you GOD. Infact, i've already told you all too much that I didnt need to even share. Except for the basic information, its really none of anyones business why i'm rehoming my dog.

Martin,

it isn't ever a sin to rehome a animal be it cat, dog or any other animal. Nor is it a crime to cause your one: not abandoning them. two: your discussing the animal to find out who is best for him and would give him the enviroment he needs and is use to before life changes hits. Which not all dogs are subject to changes of any sort nor as I read Autistic children.
The way that I read it your being responsible in finding a good home for your dog with a very tough decision that no one here really knows first hand on why, cause they are not living in your situation.

Your right aside from giving the dog information to a person and the people here you shouldn't have to explain your private and personal reasons for this cause it isn't really anyone elses business except to have the welfare of the animal and where they are gonna be going next with who as the main subject.

Putting a ad shouldn't be a judgment call on whether or not a person should or shouldn't have a pet and it is wrong and harsh to state such a thing cause you would all hate it for me to type out personally how rude each of you are for even putting your noses in where it shouldn't.

This ad isn't about the children and obviously NONE of you know how to read very clearly. Personally it wouldn't bother me if i get banned for stating how infantile and childish but keep in mind this ad wasn't about kids it was about rehoming a animal that for no one elses business on why but the animal is more of the topic at hand and should remain so.

Martin, not to get on you but when it came to personal issues or reasons why you could state personal issues at hand force me to make this decision. hope that isn't rude to you cause it wasn't meant to be but your not gonna get them to understand situations when they are stuck on one way thinking.

I do hope you find a good home for your dog, and i understand how hard this is for you since i too have kids that i had to rehome pets cause of it. both kids have autism and other problems that i don't want to get into other then just to state i know how you feel. A dog set in his ways would be not only a handful to your family it might be hard for him to adjust to having to share you where he didn't and might make things harder not to mention if you have kids that are aggressive like mine are and the dog would always be forced to protect himself all the time can put alot on a dog. You thinking about the dog first is a sign of a great pet owner and parent.

All my best to you

I understand on a very personal and experienced all you can imagine. I think what your doing is right for the dog as well as the children involved.

People will think and feel how they want but don't let their opinions get to you as there are some out there that have been where you are and had to make very hard decisions in matters that not many people will understand or even venture. And if you run into those types that have alot of opinion and no sense to understand from others then just turn a deaf ear their way.

Keep in mind that you are doing this for the right reasons for you and your situations.

Then a PM to Shalimar would've sufficed, ya think? Or did you find it necessary to make one last insult before drifting back into non-existance?

I never even made a comment on this thread, but you insulted the whole board. Kudos. Now go beat your chest and grunt and feel better about yourself.

I said in your other thread that I thought it was a good idea you were rehoming your dog, if you can't handle DA then you should not have a DA dog and if a child needs an alert dog you cannot compromise that child's health. But like Shadow said you just insulted every single member of this board, you don't need to insult people you don't agree with or people who said nothing to you at all.
