|Dooley||UPDATE ... Leila went to her new home last night. Her new family has lots of room for her to play and a child (and parents) to play with. Owner (my sister) had just retired, moved to a different state and is ill. She is heartbroken that she had to give up Leila and contacted her CA GSD groups for assistance to place Leila. She also contacted the breeder ... ALL said they would help. Leila was always with the owner and family and remained a part of the family. One site GSD rescue I think placed the "in danger" at the top of their entire page causing miscommunications as this statement continued to wind its way through the internet. Owner removed ad immediately but shared pages continued to carry the urgent alert. Leila was never in danger and is well loved and cared for. Many thanks to all, a special thanks to Megan (her breeder) for always standing behind not only her own litters but the GSD community.|

|Markobytes||I just spoke with Leila's family/owner again and they assured me that she is currently home with them and have no plans to euthanasia her. I am still trying to get Leila released and flown to me. Thanks again, Megan|

Some people really just have no idea that many breeders WANT to help, if not get dogs back at their own expense. They think they are doing the right thing by NOT burdening the breeder.

|Markobytes||Thank you everyone contacting me. I just found out about Leila yesterday and we are in the process of working with the owner to release and fly Leila back to me. She is a wonderful dog and will be cared for until we find her a forever home. Thank you Hugh for posting for me - I just joined and the forum doesn't allow me to submit yet.

Sad. I hope the owner is just trying to use the site as a way to find a suitable home for the dog and not because they would actually euthanize her.
This would breach most breeder contracts, yes? Do breeders ever approve of online listings as a way to rehome dogs?

It says "Urgent: This animal could be euthanized if not adopted soon" on top of her picture
Poor girl I hope someone can help her.

|Liesje||RescueMe is a site that anyone can use. To me this looks like the current owner is simply using it as a place to list the dog, not that this dog is actually in a shelter or being surrendered to a rescue. I would hope the owner had contacted the breeder.|
