|That was pretty much the case. The breeder had this pup knowing what had happened to it, and told the previous owner not to worry about the emergency vet bill in the records from when she was attacked and that she just 'drinks alot of water.
You obviously knew that the original buyers had issues, you just didn't want to do the work. But to blame the breeder, and think about destroying a pup for what amounts to a minor issue is just wrong.
You keep saying I am making assumptions, but you bought a pup from someone who had had her for 3 weeks, you didn't research the breeder, you failed to think about your personal situation before you purchased the pup, you then ditched her after 5 weeks and you blame everyone but yourself.
I'm glad she went back to the breeder, I'm sorry that the shuffling probably added to issues she may have. We are all busy, we all have lives but we find ways to make it work. I have a dog that has more issues then TV Guide but it has never crossed my mind to give up on her, and it never will. And you want to talk about traumatic experiences she was tossed away like trash, injured and left to die. My other dog Bud was tortured, literally, for almost 9 months. Shot, starved, run over, beaten, attacked by other dogs while chained, soaked with a hose and left outside to freeze. By the time we found him and got him out of there he was 11 months old and a raving maniac. I have had him since that day and he is FINE! So don't tell me that these things make a dog unfixable. I pull dogs all the time that most people would write off and as I stated before they turn out just wonderful. I have Morri laying at my feet who had NO socializing, had never been out of the cage she was born in. She is one of the easiest dogs I have ever met. How about Senora who was tossed over my fence one afternoon at 12 weeks or so, Gabriels littermates who were dumped sick and dying on my doorstep in mid winter, Axel who had his front leg almost torn off by another dog at 5 weeks, Savannah, Sierra and Solange picked up from a puppy mill at 7 weeks after the owner beat their mother to death for escaping,Dawn who also had never been out of her cage and came to me at 11 months or so with a broken leg and a litter, Drake who lived for 2 weeks with his paw caught in the wire of his cage. I pulled him at about 4 months. I could keep going but I won't. This is just the last year or so. A sampling of the dogs I have worked with and placed who are ALL great, loving, well adjusted pets in average pet owner homes. None of them needed much more time then to resolve the health issues. What they all needed was love and understanding.
