|Thing is, OP... everyone WAS being reasonable and giving RESOURCES and OPTIONS.. And trying to get you to view things from another perspective. But time and time again, you've continually pointed out why you CAN'T do ANY of that, and time and time again, you've made excuses.
I'm sorry, but pregnancy... You're using that as a reason too?
Guess what? I'm pregnant too. And if my fiance's parents needed somewhere to stay with BOTH their dogs, they'd come here and I certainly don't have the room either, but I'd make it work. And yeah, management can fine me too.
And if my mothers side needed that kind of help? With their 180 lb Rottweiler who doesn't get along with Charlie.. I'd STILL do it in a heartbeat. Doing a rotation and keeping it fair for both dogs IS NOT hard. I've done it with five dogs that didn't get along.
Again, as I said previously - if you REFUSE to try to help him with this in any way or look at potential resources, then perhaps you should sit him down, TELL HIM AS MUCH, and he'll do whatever he does from there. Because when it comes down to it, it's his choice on whether or not he gets rid of his dog to go live with you or tries to find elsewhere to go.
Perhaps I am judgmental. But I find it CRUEL to do that. And if you really think he'll be with you guys forever from here on out and that it won't be short term - WHY would you be looking into temporary homes for the dog anyway? To lie to him about whether or not he could ever get his dog back would be even nastier than being straight up.
