What if Pug Rescue Groups Got This Message?

Dear Child Rescue,
Must rehome due to new addtion to family "After two long years of being on a
waiting list for an agility dog, we have been notified by the breeder that, at
long last, our number has come up and …WE ARE HAVING A PUPPY!!!
We must get rid of our children IMMEDIATELY because we just know how time
consuming our new little puppy is going to be and it just wouldn't be fair to
the children. Since our little puppy will be arriving on Monday we MUST place
the children this weekend! They are described as:

One male - His name is Tommy, Caucasian (English/Irish mix), light blonde hair,
blue eyes. Four years old. Excellent disposition. He doesn't bite.Temperament
tested. Does have problems with peeing directly in the toilet. Has had Chicken
Pox and is current on all shots. Tonsils have already been
removed. Tommy eats everything, is very clean, house trained & gets along well
with others. Does not run with scissors
and with a little training he should be able to read soon.

One female - Her name is Lexie, Caucasian (English/Irish mix),
strawberry blonde hair, green eyes quite freckled. Two years old. Can be surly
at times. Non-biter, thumb sucker. Has been temperament tested but needs a
little attitude adjusting occasionally. She is current on all shots,tonsils out,
and is very healthy & can be affectionate. Gets along well with
other little girls & little boys but does not like to share her toys and
therefore would do best in a one child household. She is a very quick learner
and is currently working on her house training - shouldn't take long at all.

We really do LOVE our children so much and want to do what's right for them;that
is why we contacted a rescue group. But we simply can no longer keep them. Also,
we are afraid that they may hurt our new puppy.

I hope you understand that ours is a UNIQUE situation and we have a real
emergency here!!! They MUST be placed in rescue by Sunday night at the latest or
we will be forced to drop them off at the orphanage or along some dark, country
road. Our priority now has to be our new puppy."

Sounds just as ridiculous and ignorant when you have to "rehome" your pet,
doesn't it?

I know how all you feel,i wrote a little article about that,we all know times are tough,but you find a way,you don't just say let's get rid of the dog now,my dogs are my world and it gets me angry that people do this.We just helped pro's pug,we made pleas over the net and people started calling them about giving these pugs a home.It's so hard sometimes and it pulls at your heartstringsbut,i will keep doing this until the day all these little angels have a loving home.

Absolutely spot on. The ones I hate are the ones where the dog has been with them a very long time and then they just discard them, but I suppose this is better than the people who take them out and time them to a fence and walk away.

Would you consider separating the two? We would like to have one, but can not take them both.

If you have ever had children, you will totally agree with this, I have always said I should have gotten puppies instead of my children....... (just kidding, sort of...) ;-}

Pam, I just loved this post. You gotta love the people who "rehome" thier pets because of an addition to the family. Call me crazy but my dogs are part of my family!!

Pam, I love this and feel the same way whenever I see "rehome ads."
