Please keep us up to date on the rehoming. We all do care even though she's not ours.

If u can't swim do u buy a life jacket to stow in a boat or do you wear it. I feel this is a better life line for her.

BorderKelpie I think this situation is heartbreaking for you, Jerky. I do applaud your efforts to do what you feel is right for Aspen. I wish there was a way things could work out differently, but I know you and your family are wishing the very same thing.

Just let me say that I think you are a very compassionate and brave person to put the well being of your beloved Aspen before your own feelings.

Blessings to you, your family, Aspen, and her new family.

jerky When they came to my house she barked and growled a few times like saying hey let me check you out, so they stood there talking and i allowed her to smell them. It went well they spent 2 hrs with her after 5 to 10 min she was playing ball with them and letting them lead her on leash. Im on second shift this week so its been hard for them to come buy. I asked them to come around some more so i can feel them out and how they get along with each other. Thanks for asking. I hope they tale her they seem interested. I KNOW THE TEENAGE SON WANTED TO TAKE HER HOME THAT NIGHT. Sorry for caps but didnt want to retype.

I just find it sad that this person is going to influence future pets as well just by precedent.

jerky I would love to keep her everyone. I am terrified of her getting out in a situation and something more happening, (what if) is the biggest thing I struggle with. I can guarantee she can sense this. Its not a question of if she gets out its when she dose what will happen if provoked by a certain person. If something did happen then what? She gets put down because I was selfish and didn't give her a chance somewhere else and missed something or didn't do something and I have to live with it. I want what is best for her, I know its best for her to be with her family but that is just not possible because of the situation. Knowing she has a better chance of living a happy life with someone else where she wont be subjected to my reactive next door neighbors that shunned her from day one.
She is fine with anyone who comes around and knows how to act around a GSD.
