Thread: Free to Good Home - Loving Rottweiler

  1. #1

    Exclamation Free to Good Home - Loving Rottweiler

    I am a 4 y.o good looking male Rottweiler who desperately needs a new home

    I have been desexed, am in excellent health, have a loving & gentle temperament. I live with a toy poodle who i love very much and we are great friends. I love cuddles and am adorable!
    I am a little shy, but once I get to know you - i will love you!

    Owner is unfortunately moving interstate and needs to find me a loving new home with a large yard.

    Thank you for your opinions, judgements and comments. We have fortunately now found a new loving home for our dearest Rotty

    Poor Dog.

    I didn't know dogs needed to be rehomed when one moves interstate.

    Personally I rate rehoming a dog because the owner is moving interstate, equivalent to rehoming a child for the same reason. Some people are not meant to be dog owners or parents. This is just so wrong.

    But in the dog's best interests, you could contact the person who runs this website and ask for help.

    PS the dog's breeders may be interested in having him back rather than let him be killed at a pound because you couldn't find a home for him.

    Why is everyone so quick to judge ones decision.
    No one knows the whole story why lollypop is rehoming her pet or the circumstances. And Lollypop should not have to explain in detail everyone is entitled to privacy.
    I am sorry to say this but this forum has become a judging and ganging up site. Its getting very hard for anyone to express their opinion.
    For all we know lollypop for personal reasons may have to down size their yard dramatically because of finance reasons or anything we don't know the full story. And its not fair on a large breed of dog to be locked up in a tiny yard.

    I'm not having a go... I understand everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I just request that people should not be so judgemental and nasty.
    Sit, drop & roll!!! So proud of my little man

    It's not judgemental.

    I just question why people think it's ok to rehome a dog but not a child. Personally - it would be the same thing for me. Not that I've got any children but some I know could use rehoming. If you had children you were (willing to be) responsible for - you would take that into account when finding a new place or choosing to move interstate.

    I could not do it but at least they are trying to find him a good home.On Petrescue there is a 7 month Blue Heeler cross who was left along with some cats when the owners moved in a yard with the gate left open.He did not try to escape just waited for his owners.It was two weeks before anyone knew he had been left and it took a further three days before he would come out from under the house.

    For all you know lollypop could have been diagnosed with a serious illness that requires her to move interstate to be near family who can aid her.
    Perhaps her husband passed away and she's left with little money and therefor moving to a small unit with no yard near a support network to help her through her grieving process.
    Maybe she's off to the Army.

    Too many assumptions? Heck i even assumed 'lollypop' was a female.
    There are any number of reasons that the need to rehome her dog has arisen.

    The day the government offers support payments for the ownership of a large breed dog, or for that matter the day when having a child means a home with a decent sized backyard is necessity then the comparison of the 2 will be legitimate.
    So much sarcasm and judging. Yes... it is judging.
    It is a much better solution to rehome a large breed animal than to subject it to... for example... poor diet due to financial restrictions or lack of exercise due to changed work situations and those are but a few completely legitimate reasons.

    Yep I'm judging. Never said I wasn't.

    Having worked in rescue for a while I'm finding that excuse wearing thin.

    The beauty of a public forum is the allowance to make judgements and form opinions based on what is written.

    I'll make an assumption now.... sounds like (from what is written) that only the Rotty is getting the flick. Why is that?

    I cannot believe how rude some people are. Clearly sitting behind a monitor makes some people feel special (and again, not just in this thread). No wonder so many good people have left this forum =/
