Jakoda, that's part of it but the other part is...people who are actually dog people doing it.
And the callousness of it...I think is what's bothering folks.
Just talking about her like she's yesterday's news, she's nothing special, no sparkle, just a hum-drum dog now that he's got the spiffy new one, and so out she goes.
I could actually accept "they hate each other" more, except then we'd advise finding the new one a home since Mina was there first. At least that's kind of "legit", if you will.
Not..."well, I want to do [whatever], and Mina just isn't cut out for it, so out she goes".
"I want the newer, fancier dog".
I could accept that kind of attitude from someone who got a dog off craigslist, maybe (and know some people like that) but this is just a bit harsh.
it's more about the "person" who needs to stop, be realistic about what you have, what you want and deal with it.
THIS exactly. It's not about the rehoming...it's more of a reality check. And mycobra took the reality check and instead of saying, "Gosh I love my dog, I'm gonna keep this broken little piece of fluff and love her and work with her in a venue she's fine with", it's "I wanna become a big shot Sch whatever, so gonna ditch Mina and get a newer, glitzier model".
As a rescuer that just...it is so typical
and not in a warm fuzzy way. And, that why so many responded, "send her here, she can sit around the house being a pet all day", because some of us love our dogs just the way they are, we don't expect them to do things they cannot do or we'll get rid of them.
