Sad, Sad day for ranger (one of the orphan puppies)

So many of you know that I had taken 5 two day old puppies under my wing. I had bottle fed them and hand raised them pretty much from birth. I had taken extra attention and great care on finding them new homes. Unfortunately I had gotten a call on saturday from the family that had taken Ranger. They told me they no longer had the time for ranger as they family was gone 12 hours during the week. I also have my suspicions that he was an outside dog only only because they had built a dog house for him, he was outside when i arrived to the home, and he's not quite housebroken. I just wish the family had thought about their schedules before they decided to get a dog. The family also doesn't understand on how it affects the dog/puppy when it is just being taken away by someone other than their family that they had grown up with. The first two days he has paced back and forth, been very anxious, whines at the door, and when we take him outside he just sits there and whines some more. Which is completely understandable. It is just so hard for me to see him like this. I do have two ppl who are already interested in ranger. One person is my mother's best friend who also has a Labrador. If she takes ranger I know he'll be in good hands as I know this person very well. She is also like family to me. Another person that is interested in Ranger is a lady who is involved in a rescue out here. She wants ranger as her personal pet. I'm hoping that the family friend takes him though. Everyone please pray that I can find an everlasting forever home for ranger and that the family will include him as part of the family and not just a dog.

hughughughughug to both you and Ranger. I remember how hard you worked and the time you spent raising and caring for the puppies and also in trying to find them good forever homes. It's very sad that poor Ranger's situation didn't work out but we are glad he is back with you and know that you will do your very best to find him an amazing forever home that is able to give him the love and care he needs and deserves. Hugs,prayers and best wishes being sent to both of you and your family as well.flowers

Thank you M&K and Rocky. Yes I am thankful that the family followed the rehoming contract and contacted me instead of dropping him off at the shelter/rescue or reselling him. Ranger is going to live with my mom. About 2 months ago one of her ACD's had died. It was the strangest thing. Her and her sister were playing and out of nowhere the dog stopped and collapsed. My mom performed CPR on her own dog and it still wasn't enough. So since then she has been looking for another dog to keep her other ACD company and for her to play with.

They're gone 12 hours a week ?
I'm gone 12 hours a day lol
It is not about how much time you have or don't have, but how you use it.. Some people watch tv, hang out with friends, go to the movies, etc.. Mine is spent with the dogs.

So sad, though.
I'm glad he is going someplace you can visit him and know they love him.
This would be one of the hardest things for me if I were rehoming puppies..
You just never know ):

M&L... its sad .. but as you say at least they had the decency to stick with the contract and not just dump Ranger.

Its meant you can "mend" this situation and as Ranger is going to be with your Mum now... it can all be mended properly for the Sweet Boy !

Sad that it had to happen.. but happy that its now going to be OK !

Hugsssss
