Worried about Bay's litter mates..
In case you did not read my introduction, I recently welcomed a 2 month old GSD puppy into my family.
He is from my grandmother's extremely irresponsible neighbor, who has two German Shepherds BOTH unaltered STILL. I actually think the female is pregnant again, she just finished weaning the puppies. Monday his son asked me if I wanted one or two, after confirming what I thought he meant with the actual owner. They were giving the puppies away for free. After watching a total stranger who didn't say anything but three sentences come off the street and take one, I took the boy I had helped deliver home with me.
As soon as I got home, I contacted Good Shepherd Rescue and they started working with me right away, which I will always be grateful for, but they did need to speak to the owner. After finding out they would be going to a rescue, he started backing out. I've offered him money, reassured they would be going into foster homes and not kennels, and it would cost him nothing.. But he just said he would think about and hasn't contacted the rescue or me. I am terrified of what will happen to Bay's siblings. I do not live in a good neighborhood, and we do have a big dog fighting problem down here. Everyone knows who is first to line up for free puppies..
I am not sure what to do or if I can do anything. He still does not have a problem with people coming to get them, so I was thinking I could get some friends together as 'future owners', get the puppies I could, then get them to Good Shepherd. It is me thinking desperately, but i really don't know.
I'm sorry for the novel, but it has just been making me feel so uneasy and sick for the puppies.. I've watched the mom grow up from a puppy by herself, offered to pay to spay her when they decided to get a boy, I helped deliver when they were on vacation, watched them grow up with minimum human contact in a filthy backyard, and now seeing them basically thrown away to whoever is first just breaks my heart.
