|So I have this Aunt & Uncle that lost their dog in the summer and when I saw them at my Grandma's birthday I offered to, when they were ready, help them find a new dog. My Aunt went on & on about how they were only going to get another dog when they found one that "needed" them. Uh dogs in shelters & rescues all over the province lady! Whatever, I admit they're crazy. Nice but crazy. They honestly believe their dog once said "yes" when they asked her something.
Anyways a couple months go by and I've got a 3-legged foster and I post a couple times on facebook about him, like oh he's here, taking him to the vet today and etc. Really generally stuff.
BAM I get a message from her, they want to adopt him. She does not ask me a SINGLE question about him. She apparently doesn't care how big he is, how much energy he has, if he eats couchs...nothing. This is a dog that "needs" her.
I told her he's not a match for them using their semi-wild cat as a reason and move on with my life. She has not! She keeps posting on my facebook "wish he liked cats" or "if only you could get him to like cats". Yeah he loves cats! He loves to chase them, he ripped the leash out of hand to chase one. Your cat had a stroke at the sight of JEWEL when she just stood there looking at it. Of course once it ran away from Jewel she chased it, Jettsen would probably kill it at the end, unlike Jewel that playbowed it.
Now she tells me they want to come visit. BS!! I can't remember the last time they came to see me? Never maybe. She wants to come see Jettsen. Her obsession with him is making me crazy! I wouldn't adopt him to them even if they didn't have that cat. They never walked their last dog, NEVER. They played fetch with her in the yard until she dropped and then when she got HD said it was a blessing she ended up with people that never walked her since she had bad hips. ??? Yeah I'm sure nice gentle walks would have made her hips much worse than ripping around the yard and jumping the deck.
Plus she was over-weight. Free feeding plus a plate full of whatever they were eating. I saw that dog eat a whole waffle with whipped cream, bacon and syrup.
Seriously?? As a three legged dog he needs to be kept slim and have regular excersize! Argh. Just really frustrated. I tried telling them no the nice way and they won't let go so now I'm going to have to be mean?
They think they know so much about dogs & training but they don't. They think I don't know anything because Jewel wouldn't listen to my Uncle when we were there once. Umm, which one of us gave our dog a treat every single time it peed in the house when people came over? Not a treat before hand to distract her from the people...no once she had peed she got a treat to calm her. Uhhhh and they wondered why she was still peeing in the house at 6 years old?
Sorry this got so long, just really annoyed. Any advise?
