Dog rescue is a sad and dark place but as a rescuer regardless of all the horrible things you see... the abuse, the neglect, the death, the ones you can't help, the mean and cruel people... you deal with it for the dogs. You put on a happy face and you deal. This blog is to help one dog rescuer deal and hopefully show other rescuers they are not alone, even though it feels like that most of the time.

Had to say something
On Lorain County Garage Sale Facebook Website this was posted:
I have a male 2 yaer old
Olde English Bulldogge for sale. Asking $400 obo. He is more on the taller side
but is ckc and ioeba certified. He has been with us since 10 weeks but we are
going to a new breed of dog and would like him to go to a good family. He is
kennel trained and doesnt leave the yard. I hear people wanting these dogs all
the time but dont have the 1000 dollar plus that they run for. We just want a
good home for him and therefore asking a rehoming fee. We have a kennel that is
8 ft by 8 ft that we can sell with him for 550 together. Let me know if you
know anyone interested in this breed. Thank you.

Here was my response:
you have kids? I am only asking because are you sure that you want to teach
them it is ok to throw away (or in your words RE HOME) a living pet just
because you want a new one? Sorry but pet ownership should be for the LIFE of
the pet, not until you get bored with it.
