    And what I meant by impractical is the decisions that would have to be made if one should have problems arrise out of their control. yes a dog should be treated as part pf the family- even as a child but when situations arrise a child and dog would not necessarily be given the same treatment- would they???

    Angelanbatty I apologise if my choice of words has offended you, I in no way intended this.

    That is very true. I think more questions should have been asked is all before the attacks

    I actually do treat children the same way I treat my dog. If I ask for something to be done, I expect it to be done. I expect for things to be taken gently, not snatched. I expect quiet when I ask for it.

    I think if people weren't so obsessed with anthropomorphism they'd realise that the boundaries aren't all that different.

    Oh & I expect a canine version of please (sit nicely) when asking for something.



    I think when rehoming an animal everything should be black and white. All of the information should be there. Saying "moving interstate" just doesn't cut it. Batty has gone from QLD to WA to NSW with me. Soon we'll be travelling the entire way up the coast and all the way down to the bottom of Victoria with me. We'll also be visiting Tasmania.

    It can be done. It can be done easily and IMO it's irresponsible not to do all you can to make sure your dog comes with you.

    People SHOULD show the same responsibility for their animals as they do their children. It's disgusting to see pets as lower IMO.

    No worries at all I get annoyed very quickly with the arguement that kids are better than dogs/should be treated better/cared for more.

    We shouldn't have to get financial aid for dogs (Not your point, Annes I think?) for them to be considered worth keeping for the entirety of their lives. They are our responsibility until the day they die.

    Fair enough if it is in the animals best interests, but most of the time that is NOT the case.

    Hell, my ACD x (Ben) lives on my step fathers property with my step father. But Ben wasn't coping with suburbia. I couldn't give him enough exercise or stimulation, he gets it now helping to move the cattle around and racing around the farm following the quad. It's a better life for him. He may not live with me, but he's still my dog. I still pay for everything for him, and I go to visit every chance I get. He is happier and better off there & it broke my heart leaving him behind.

    I don't think you're going to escape ridiculous, judgemental and insulting people here. Though direct insults are against the forum rules. But we also don't take too kindly to going through the forum and bumping all the old threads ie where the discussion was over, more than a month ago.

    Personally I don't think "moving to a unit" is an excuse for getting rid of the dog. Neither is moving interstate. I know some parents end up giving up their children or having them taken away and giving up the family pets should be just as hard in my opinion.

    Not that I am in any way a believer, the sentiment of this phrase says it for me.

    Please help! After two long years of being on a waiting list for a dog, we have been notified by breed rescue that, at long last, our number has come up and ... WE ARE HAVING A PUPPY!

    We must get rid of our children IMMEDIATELY because we just know how time consuming our new little puppy is going to be and it just wouldn't be fair to the children. Since our little puppy will be arriving on Monday we MUST place the children up for adoption this weekend!

    One male -- his name is Tommy, Caucasian (English/Irish mix), light blonde hair, blue eyes. Four years old. Excellent disposition. He doesn't bite. Temperament tested. Does have problems with peeing directly in the toilet. Has had chicken Pox and is current on all shots. Tonsils have already been removed. Tommy eats everything, is very clean, house trained and gets along well with others. Does not run with scissors and with a little training he should be able to read soon.

    One female -- her name is Lexie, Caucasian (English/Irish mix), strawberry blonde hair, green eyes quite freckled. Two years old. Can be surly at times. Non-biter, thumb sucker. Has been temperament tested but needs a little attitude adjusting occasionally. She is current on all shots, tonsils out, and is very healthy and can be affectionate. Gets along well with other little girls and little boys but does not like to share her toys and therefore would do best in a one child household. She is a very quick learner and is currently working on her house training. Shouldn't take long at all.

    We really do LOVE our children so much and want to do what's right for them. That is why we contacted a rescue group. But we simply can no longer keep them. Also, we are afraid that they may hurt our new puppy.

    I hope you understand that ours is a UNIQUE situation and we have a real emergency here! They MUST be placed into your rescue by Sunday night at the latest or we will be forced to drop them off at the orphanage or along some dark, country road. Our priority now has to be our new puppy.

    Hyacinth I dont know if that was directed at me or not but you are trying to make a point obviously. well sorry my kids, that i carried for 9 months and gave birth to mean more to me than my dog, No wait i am not sorry!

    I have never said that dogs should be treated bady, abandoned or the likes. I merely tried to get the point across that there are circumstances beyond our control that bring on hard decisions which benefit the dog in the long run.

    And as far as moving into a unit not being a reason to rehome a dog that is just pitiful. fair enough if it is a little terrier or something, would you take your lab, rotti, GREAT DANE!!!! into a unit? if you would you obviously do not consider what is the best lifestyle for your dog.

    AND BEFORE EVERYONE JUMPS IN after deciphering every LETTER that i just wrote and twist them into something else i personally would not give up my dog for anything, which is why i choose not to have a large breed, as i do not own my house and may be moving for the rest of my life so i wont have a dog that cannot be taken everywhere with me.

    anyway, have a go... cant expect much else.

    Trust me, if this was legal, many more children would be re-homed!

    We each think of our dogs in different ways. I love mine and I sincerely do not believe I love them any less than anyone else. However, I can accept that **** happens and sometimes there is a need to re-home them.

    They are a posession overall, they are not humans and it is legal.

    If it is done with the long term future and care of the animal in mind, it doesn't worry me.
