Default Update

Baron has Hypothyroidsm which *can* be the cause of his aggression,considering that it's not his normal character.
He will be on meds and will stay with us until we find a family who is suitable for him. As far as the woman calling,she did call 5 times today and sent 4 emails.

The funny thing about this is that her husband tried to educate me on bloat yesterday. If Baron had been bloated and untreated, I am sure he wouldn't with us now.

The very last email I got from her said :

'wow... you have no idea how horrible of a person you look like right now. you just wasted our time and had us get our kids hopes up for nothing. my husband is a US marine and has raised wolves for years without EVER having any issues. you are heartless and i hope you enjoy your evening '.

Anyway if they can't understand that is their issue. Thanks for letting me vent.

raised wolves for years? Really? Where? In the Marines?

She is being completely unreasonable and it's all about her.

It went from being a bit crazy and disappointed to harassment a few dozen contacts ago.

Do what is right for the dog, that is your responsibility. Her child's hopes are her responsibility. And getting his hopes up and then not getting what he wanted is good practice for life in general, but it is also a lot easier to explain to a kid that the dog had something going on with him, and is not the right dog for them, than it is to explain why the dog bit him or mauled him, or needs to be euthanized because it went after one of his friends.

I think if anything, it shows that you are pretty long-suffering not to have called the police and made a complaint about the lady. She's crazy to have called you that many times. That is totally nutso, and I would be worried about such a nutty person retaliating in some way.

I feel for you.

We had something similar happen with a dog we courtesy posted for someone. We found a good applicant, but the wife of the local dentist showed up and she absolutely HAD To have the dog. Made a huge scene at the vet's office. It was supposed to be the perfect home with the husband retiring, living in a home that costs a fortune... So the guy who rescued the dog decided to place her with this woman. The agreement was that he takes the dog back if it does not work out.

Three months later the woman calls, their lifestyle has changed and they are returning the dog to me. I explained that the dog is going back to the person who had her before, it was not our dog, they did not sign our contract, pay and adoption fee, etc. She started screaming at me a threatening, called every 10 minutes for hours, filled my answering machine. The circus went on for days.

My point is that people who are this unstable are unstable both ways. Today they are obsessed about getting the dog tomorrow they will be obsessed about getting rid of him. It is not a good idea to place a dog with anyone with whom you don't have a normal communication. It is a bad base for a situation when things get challenging.

Well-I apologize for trying to give them the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they can take up raising wolves again........
