I am sorry I am so frustrated right now. I had 4 people contact me about aggressive dogs. I told them all the same thing. That I couldn't help and the reason why. I also offered them advice on how to deal / work with the dog aggressive dog. I also told them why re homing the dog was not a good idea.
1 person emailed me and said they thought that would be my answer and thanked me for my time. The other 2 people I didn't hear from and the 4th person YIKES! Told me I shouldn't be in rescue because anyone can do what I do. REALLY??? She told me that I am un caring and that I am not a rescue she would ever want to deal with.
Now, I have to add that the person emailed me without putting any information about who she was or where the dog was located. She also addressed the email to Susan.
Here is the email she sent me.
The poor dog sounds to me like he is suffering mentally and I feel really bad for him.
OH she also told me that she would tell anyone that would listen about me and that how would my sister rescues feel about me because I told her I wouldn't be able to take the dog into our rescue. I offered to give her the name, phone number and email of our president. She doesn't want to talk to Kim. LOL! I also asked her to please become a dog rescue volunteer since anyone can do what I do. We need the help!
I understand that people want to believe that EVERY dog is savable but that simply isn't the case. My friend went to a dog sanctuary that takes in aggressive dogs. And she said it was the saddest thing she has ever seen. The dogs are in a fenced in area, with another fence around that with a few feet in between fences with pad locks and big notices that say AGGRESSIVE DANGER. The dogs are fed with a system so no one really needs to be near the dog. The dog house / inside part the dog has can be closed so that someone can get in the cage to clean it and at least 1 time a year the dog is tranquilized so the vet can give the dog shots and other care.
Really??? That is a life??? Makes me cringe.
Trust me the last thing I want to do is put a dog to sleep but I would rather have a dog die peacefully at least feeling love and maybe the ONLY nice act that was ever given to the dog then live a life in isolation or abuse.
UGH! It just makes me so mad when people go off on me... fine believe what you want. I have dog rescue friends who will take in dog aggressive dogs and just bored them sometimes for YEARS while they look for a home that will take in a dog aggressive dog and you know what more power to them but I won't do that. Doesn't mean that I send them an email screaming at them b/c I don't agree.
Whatever! If she wants my life she can have it AND ALL THE BILLS AND DOG POOP that goes with it. LOL!
