At the risk of coming back here and enduring more harsh comments. AT lease some, most people were very kind!
I wanted to add to this thread of my recent experience of trying to rehome my Jack Russell Terrier Bruno.
If anyone is seeking advice from this thread. I want you to know, it is OK to rehome.
BUT do not do it out of desperation. Also only do it if the dog is going to a situation that is better than the one the dog is in. Stick with breed rescues for assitance.
I know it is getting rough right now to find homeless pets good homes. So right now it would be very hard to rehome.
I got overwhelmed and desperate enough to take Bruno to a new shelter, I thought could rehome him. They did in one day.
I never took his tags off. I thought he might need them. I just could not bring myself to remove them.
He escaped from his new owners. (I found out Bruno was placed in the inner city where there are many strays). The women that found him said he had been running with the pack of strays. He stayed one night with one of the women who had taken in many animals. Her neighbor helped her get a hold of me.
I had not slept or ate for a week at the guilt I felt at not doing the proper thing by Bruno..finding him a good home or waiting for assitance from a rescue.
After getting the call and saying I was on my way to get him. I was overwhelmed with tears.
He had been HOME since last Thursday. We are doing well. We are in contact with the Omaha JRT rescue for assitance.
We are recommitting to him, with all we have. We have to start over gaining his trust again.
We are taking him to a JRT sporting event open to all JRT's. Where we will meet the JRT rescue woman, so she can personally meet Bruno. I am hoping it will be a fun day for him, and maybe something he will be good at.
I know some of you may feel we do not derserve another chance.
Just know Bruno does...and he is in very good hands. I understand things better now, I will never do wrong by him again. I have learned a lot from this.
I also will not come back here for advice on him. This is a GSD board. I will go to the Omaha JRT rescue. If you have KIND advice, please PM me. Thank you for your support.
