Thank you for the kind words, and I know....sigh........it's sad that s many are going to end up needing a home or may not even get a home. I am in Niagara Falls area kind of just outside of St.Catharines. Usually when I mention the actual town no one has ever heard of it so I just say NF. or St. Kits.
Anyway, I go the Lincoln County HS. a lot to donate dog food. You see my hubby works for Lawblaws in and many many bags of food get dammaged from box cutters and forklifts etc. So he is allowed to take them when they accumulate to donate.
I see that the Lincoln County HS is loaded usually with pits or pit crosses. But surprisingly....I have only seen one. He was sitting in there for 9 weeks and all seemed lost. I posted around about him and mentioned him a few places and just like that, 3 days later he was adopted out. The manager of the LCHS, emailed me as soon as it happend.
Unfortunately, my aunt is just a regular lady with a regular family and her dog Eddy is loved like any family pet, BUT...they are not die hard dog owners like myself you or many people on this forum. You or I would stand up for our dogs sorta with the same mantality "til death do us part" She is not so die hard and really wants to wash her hands of it all. It's sad becuse Eddy is a good dog. From what I saw of him for the short time I had him, he was a good boy and quite normal. I'd take him but I've done the two dog home thing and I find I just can't handle that much dog in my house as much as I LOVE them so much or I would just be done with this and take him myself. It's actually taking everything in me not to just take him, but alas, I know it would end in me not being able to handle it.
I've been given one peice of good news tho. Eddy looks more like a boxer than anything else...and I was told that they "go" quicker, so Eddy may have a chance.
The one at the LCHS, his name was Deisel. He got adopted because someone cared. so we'll see.....maybe this won't be too hard. I hope anyway.
Thanks for the welcome, and I have received an email from the admin saying that I have been added. Does that mean I can post on other threads now??
