David Winners Speaking from experience, it's challenging owning restricted breeds while in the military. You have to find off post housing ahead of time or kennel your dog somewhere. This requires some due diligence on the part of the owner to get things lined up. And it doesn't always work. My fall back is my brother who can watch the dogs indefinitely until I get things worked out.

I understand the OPs frustration, as sometimes the military lifestyle leaves you bewildered a whirlwind of change. My suggestion is to have a fallback option that is worked out ahead of time. Mine included working out the plan with my brother, having the necessary kennels and accessories ready, researching how and where the dogs needed to be shipped and picked up, and having money ($2000) set aside for shipping the dogs overseas to my brother. I'm a little over organized (read anal) about things so I printed off a checklist LOL.

There is nothing you can do about last time, but there are some lessons to be learned IMHO.

I'm sorry: ( I just don't like when people can't understand my situation. I love my pup and promised myself I'd never do this again.. I love my pup and I.miss my Emery more than anything.

We decided months later that we'd get Zeus. So back off. And NO I WILL NOT GET RID OF ZEUS. We will no longer be military and will have a house.

GSDlover143 Man you know I'm disappointed in this forum... you can't ever post anything without being bashed. Especially when this thread was not meant for anything bad.
