Today we had to send our pup back to the shelter. I am sitting here bawling as my hubby drops her off. I wish we could go out and buy a house with a big yard so we could keep her. She has been getting really bored when we are at work. So she tears everything she can find up. Our yard is too small for her. I know she will be much happier with a family with kids and a big yard, but I still feel really bad. She hated the shelter cause she if afraid of other dogs. But the shelter here makes you agree that you will bring them back if you can't keep them. We could get fined big time if we give her away to someone else and she ends up in the shelter. I understand their reasoning (dog fighting is a big problem in our state), but it sucks cause we could find her a great home. So we typed up a flyer to go with her. She seems very sad and lethargic in the shelter, so we described her real personality and said how smart she is. She learned to "sit" in a week, potty trained in a week and a half, and is well on her way to learning "fetch."
So now I'm gonna sit here and cry some more. I'm not sure if its the hormones or if I would be this torn up about this normally. But I do know that right now is not the time for this. I don't know how much more I can handle.
