Whippet Cross

Postby JulieH » 20 Feb 2012, 13:39

Marley the whippet x is looking for a forever home. He is approximately 8 months old and a beautiful looking dog. His original owners were going to have him put to sleep because they didn't want him anymore. His current owners took him in, but their cats don’t like him so they are looking to rehome him. He is currently in East Yorkshire. For contact details and a photo email: keith.huggins@tesco.net.

I've just found out why Marley was going to be put to sleep - he had become too heavy for the owner's children to carry around! Speechless! :shock:

The worst excuse I've ever heard, when my Digger was returned to me at the age of 2 1/2 (I'd bred him, family was highly recommended and I knew them well) was that he was too nice. He loved saying hello to everyone, adored children, other dogs, cats, in fact IMO he was perfect.
It isn't the first time I've heard this excuse for dumping a dog and it surely won't be the last. I think it must be a kind of jealousy on the part of the owners who like to think the dog only loves them, to the exclusion of everyone else.
Karma? They went straight out and bought a Rottie puppy that had health problems and a foul temperament (unlike most Rotties).
I wish they would introduce the Swiss animal protection laws in here. It is the strictest country in the world for animal protection/welfare.
To adopt/buy a dog you now have to undergo an exam. And that goes for breeders and owners of working dogs.
It wasn't very popular with dog owners when it first came out and there was an uproar.... but it works! People are now being more sensible about the breeds they buy and why they buy them.
Animal welfare laws in the UK are laughable
