I completely agree. One of the biggest mistakes people make with this breed is assuming that everything will be fine with the two of them. All it takes is one look from the other dog to change that.
Also, did this family work out? Were you able to find a place? I will never, ever, understand why people wait until the very last minute to find placement. I had a woman call me a few weeks ago about her male pit bull that she loved ever so much and was asking if I could find a foster for him. Apparently she had known for mooooooooonths that she was having to move but decided to start calling shelters and rescues literally THREE days before moving. She said her vet advised to have the dog pts because finding placement was going to be damned near impossible in three days. I told her that I agreed, and that a dog being pts with the owner there is a whole lot better than a dog degrading in a kennel before being pts along with dozens of others. She wasnt happy wth me and called me every name under the sun but hey, the truth hurts.
You can't possibly love something that much if you only give it 72 hours to live when you've known for months that you're moving. I moved back in March and I had literally a week to find a place to live or I was moving back in with my mom. Needless to say, I found a place to live in that week. It took hours online, hours on the phone and a whole lot of stress but it's possible.
And I'm done ranting!
