Is it Really the Dog?

I had one person adopt a dog who was fearful. The dog was clearly abused. The dog was wonderful with kids in the foster home and was just very sweet and loving. The dog would get scared if you reached for him really fast or made a loud noise. he was clearly hit often. he would never growl or snap. Very sweet dog. Anyway, so the dog gets adopted and about a week later... I get a call from the adopter the dog bit him in the face. This is not behavior I would have ever expected. I tell him I will make arrangements to have the dog removed from his home asap and after 10 day bite hold he will be euthanized. I felt horrible! Then I find out the story... the adopter was on the ground, eye level with this medium sized dog, in his face holding a toy and growling at him. Why would you do that? You are going to get eye level with a dog you have only had less then a week and growl at him. Why? The adopter said he wanted the dog to play with toys. So you were forcing him? You get a stupid ass badge for that one! 

I did not have the dog euthanized. I gave the dog to a family who loves him! They signed a waiver saying they knew he had bitten and he has been fine in the home ever since. I just had another experience where was it the dog or was it the people trying to do too much in one day with a new dog? Now I sit and wait and try to figure out what to do. Do I end a dogs life because maybe the people messed up? Or do I re home the dog with a bite contract? I just don't know. It isn't fair that a dog should suffer b/c a human screwed up but I am sorry I am not loosing my house and everything I own because I placed a biting dog. And I am not going to be one of those rescue people who has 12 dogs with issues. Sorry I might be a dog rescue person but I still want to have a normal life with only 3 dogs and ones that I can trust 100%. I am just like everyone else I want a dog b/c it is fun to have a dog not a dog that adds stress to my life b/c every time someone enters the house he/she tries to eat you. No thanks!

Own Car for Relocations Abroad

Probably that each one of you have thought about it when you had to leave the country, either for vacation or for work. Each of the two options that have in hand carry advantages and disadvantages, as it follows. First of all, it is convenient, you feel comfortable driving it and it gives you on the road the possibility to make your own schedule by even leaving from your front door and not from the airport or railway station. You leave when you want, you make as many stoppages as you want and you choose the road to take (the easiest one, with beautiful landscapes, or the fastest one). The huge disadvantage of the own car for such a ride is that you'll have to drive for a very long distance, fact which is tiring and dangerous from a certain point if the tiredness accumulates and if you don't make enough stops to rest. Besides this, if you should reach fast from one country to another, you definitely won't make it. You should consider going to a rent a car company such as Rent a Car Bucharest that supplies a large variety of services, that also include the possibility of relocations services.

Hard Work

Taking in the Pits has been a lot of crazy hard work. They are wonderful dogs, sweet and loving and learn so quick. I want to spend every minute with them plus on top of that I have the other dogs I am trying to help. I have had some really long hours at work the last week or so and have some other things going on which I can't talk about right now that has been a bit draining. Don't worry it isn't anything bad... well unless I don't get what I want. We had an adoption event on Saturday. Only one dog got adopted but it was my sweet Nina who was thrown from a car and had road rash on her one side so bad that she is missing most of her hair. Nina: Labrador Retriever. When we took her in, it took 3 days for her to wag her tail. I am so happy that she found a home. She is just the sweetest dog ever. I had taken in 5 puppies on Thursday... can you believe not one was spoken for at the event?! Well one did go to a foster to adopt home today and I do have one application but for the same puppy. Hoping they will be interested in the puppy that looks just like the one they put an application in for. Oh I hope! I have so much going on I have had 2 dogs in boarding for over a week now. Yikes expensive. I am picking up the one tomorrow and Wednesday the other one goes to a foster to adopt home... and I really really hope that one leads to an adoption. That poor dog is so sweet and just needs the right now. So for 2013 has been pretty good... hoping that my good news comes this week... if it does I will be sure to let you know what it is ;)
