My sweet baby girl Sky, who I placed in a home just two months ago with a youngish couple who live near my, is being returned to me. I'm so unhappy that it didn't work out.
After they had her for a while, the guy lost his job and ended up taking a new job that has him working lots more hours; ever since then, she's been reverting on her housebreaking and they called me a few times for advice and help and I did my best to "counsel" them through it, but they finally decided it's not working out for them. They think she's not getting the time or training a pup needs, and I was angry with them at first . . . but the more I've talked to them about it, the more I think they are right. They've admitted that they think they made a mistake in adopting a pup, and they want to do what's right by her.
They are going to "foster" her till I find her a home . . . but I want/need to find her a foster home. If they don't have time for her, they don't have time for her. I'd like to get her to a solid placement. She is such a sweetie, and she's at an age where she really needs to go through some formal training. I wish I could keep her myself, she's so sweet and full o' personality. I love her to bits.
For those who remember her (or those who might not), here she is a week or two before she was placed.
If you're in the Mid-Atlantic and know anyone looking for a pit bull less than a year old, feel free to forward them to her Petfinder page:
She's sensitive, sweet, is appropriately behaved with other dogs (though a bit rough for smaller dogs), ADORES children. Poor Sky.
