But I won't speak against someone like this, when it's laughable that people will get themselves in a tizzy over it with the overwhelming amount of real animal abuse, cruelty, and neglect all over the world, in our neighbors' home, the dogs dying in shelters.
So is everyone supposed to say the same thing? "Go for it" (as in rehoming)?
Of course there's going to be mixed opinions, since most of us, having our dogs as PETS first and if they did well at something, did that, too.
This person got a pet. Took it to a venue where it may or may not be failing. And now wants to rehome it because it's said to be failing.
Point is - it was a pet first, and now that's not good enough, now it's expected to do something it cannot do.
It is slightly different than a person purchasing a working dog for the purpose of working.
I think everyone here needs to keep in mind that any dog may, in fact, fail at it's intended venue (if working or showing, etc.) and be prepared to keep as a pet if that's all the dog turns out to be.
Or have a real good contingency plan (dog goes back to breeder, dog is given to a family member, etc.).
But a pet...purchased as a pet... should be kept as a pet if that's all it turns out to be, after all.
