M3andGSD,the name or the rescue is woof and purr furry friends. I am not sure if they just unscrupulous or all together made up. ive learned when under stress of in an unfamiliar situation people tend to become easier to influence and while i consider myself relatively street smart looking back i overlooked some huge, huge red flags.
i did sign the puppies over. :/
i became aware for the potential for mastitis while reading what to look out for. her teats are very swollen but not red and she seems to be in discomfort, not pain. she hasnt been eating much. i know this helps breasts go down im concerned because she is the one showing little interest in eating. could she somehow on an instinctual level know eating less will ease her discomfort or that wishful thinking?
she was very down yesterday snd seeing her search for her pups was downright heartbreaking. what was encouraging was that for first time in a while she intiated play with me, chasing a ball, swollen mammeries and all. i of course kept it low impact but it was good to see her in higher spirits.
so now im getting texts from this woman calling me a liar (ironic)
everything she has written about this situation is a lie. i didnt refuse to surrender mother, i didnt not want the puppies. its true i was concerned about having enough food for mom but there were better solutions available then seperation. i offered one: leave the pups here and help me out with some food.
this lady has to be mentally ill. i have all the trxt messages between us leading up to me surrendering pups.
while writing this she has continued to text lies and gibberish to me and when i confronted her with some of her lies posted on her FB page she responded that her partner must of wrote them
Most recent post on her FB page...."My beautiful 7 dwarfs ORPHANED German shepherd pups are thriving and doing amazing .... My goodness are they getting BIG !
Orphaned bottle babies are the best"
yeah thats a good point in situations like this, as more often than not both sides of a story will be edited to reduce blame and put that person in the best light. its something we can all fall victim of. that being said i cant think of anything i left out or changed that would be pertinent here, i told the story as it happened. i took blame where i felt i deserved it and didnt place any undeserved blame on anyone else. you watched it unfold in real time: when this thread started i was still with puppies and hadnt spoken to or considered a rescue. so its not like i created a "look what these shady people did to me" thread.Gator (and anyone else who has commented or written the rescue), I'm sure your intentions are good ones but let's keep in mind that all we are essentially going off of is hearsay. We only have the story that the OP has provided us, and the rescue only has what the foster person provided them.
The rescue absolutely appears shady, but to me, there are things on both sides that don't add up.
