11 years old...

We have a Jack that will be 11 years this August. We have had him since he was about 6 months old. His name is ####. We must find him a new home due to a divorce and we will be moving into a rental property. They accept no pets, and I have looked elsewhere, but cannot find anything that takes dogs.

My children are very attached to him, but I feel we have no alternative. My Ex cannot take him either. My children are very involved in very many activities, and we just don’t have the time to spend with him anymore. He is a great dog and has a wonderful personality, and I feel would be very suited to a retired person, or couple that can give him a lot of attention as he craves this. He is neutered and in good health, and current on all shots, etc.. I wish I had another alternative, but I am afraid we are desperate. I have asked everyone I know if they would like to have him, and have contacted the owners of his mother, but to no avail.

Please contact me if you can help, or know someone who can.

I read this email and shook my head. 11 years a part of your family.... that is just so sad.

This post just breaks my heart. I pray Jack can live out his senior years with a family that will love him for life. He deserves it..

I follow this blog, and wanted to scream in anger. Then I cried, thinking about poor little Jack. I pray he can find a home that will keep him for life, and love him. When are people going to realize a pet is for life?

poor little dog - and that is BS that they have "no alternative" - and just what are they teaching their children?

I picked up a 9yr old Border Collie for the Rescue I volunteer for. She is an angel, such a good girl, loves everyone, house trained, well behaved, etc. Same story moving and can't take my dog. I adopted her myself and she is a perfect fit, she will always be loved and never abandoned again.
Thank you for all that you do.

I don't believe it - lots of apartments accept dogs under 25lbs, just not big dogs . . .
