Never say never as the saying goes.

I learned that lesson a few years ago, the hard way.

That poor dog and man, sometimes life is so sad.

I was going to say the exact same thing...you never know. Life is very sad & sometimes beyond our control.

Such a sad story. I can't but help but think of the owner.

Very sad indeed. Maddie'sMom as you said before, sometimes bad things happen to good people.

I think I posted a couple of years ago about the one owner surrender I was involved with. The father and mother had been in a golf cart when it overturned and the mother had a severe spine/head injury. She had been in a hospital/rehab for the past 5 months. The mother was getting out of rehab in a week and the family had 2 dogs. An older setter type and a very young (less than a year) doodle that was a wild maniac. The doctors told the family that if the doodle jumped on the mother or ran into her it could be FATAL so they had to make a choice and they reluctantly chose to surrender the doodle. My husband and I went to the house where the whole family, minus the mother, was there. They were crying and weeping and I felt so terrible. We took the dog and he was immediately placed in "doggy heaven" with a 35 year old millionaire that had retired at 34 and had 2 dogs and a mansion with an indoor and outdoor pool. About a month later the people called the rescue back because a relative decided they could foster the doodle. Needless to say, we felt the bad guy again because we could not return the doodle.
beth, moose and angel

lesson learned? exhaust all avenues of help before surrendering to a rescue.

How heartbreaking. I'm sitting here thinking about and tears are streaming down my cheeks. Mayve is right - you never know when someone's situation changes and they can't keep the pet. I would do anything in my power to keep Liberty no matter what. Even if I had to live on the street with her.

I use to help a GR Rescue in my state with Intake-some times it was so heartbreaking when families or family members had to surrender a dog to us.

We have a very large Military Base and Community in my area, often times dogs being surrendered were due to Deployments. The ones that really got to me were when the owners had passed away. We also had people that surrendered their dog due to lack of time for the dog and sometimes the dogs were not cared for very well. These were always very sad situations, however, we were there for the dogs and not to judge the owners, because we knew this dog was on it's way to a better life.

I agree with Rob, I can't imagine how devastating that would be!

sitting here and reading this thread with Rose by my feet. Just yesterday I told my husband how lucky we are to have her in our home. I told him I wouldn't take $10 mil for her.
I agree with Rob.
