    Default Sigh

    I've been asked to take a dog - well I was asked 2 days ago (if you can believe it). 10 mo male gsd - taken to the vet to be pts as he had nipped a child and adult. What the hell am I supposed to do?

    How dare I wrap myself up in my own grief when he needs my help?

    Good on you Occy. You'll help him become what he's suppose to be, and he'll help you ease your pain.

    He's gorgeous.

    Occy, what a beautiful boy and you are the one who could really help him. Maybe he was sent by Cappy to help relieve some of your pain.

    He looks like a lovely fellow.

    Trust your intuition, if you are unsure refer them on to another breed rescue group. Perhaps you could assess/temp care until he finds a space with breed rescue?

    I do that quite often here, also assist with transport to the airport etc if it is needed...

    Occy, look at him. He is gorgeous and needs a new home. Fate works in mysterious ways..... as 'airy fairy' as it sounds, perhaps this is Cappy sending you someone to cherish?

    If his aggression is just misdirected energy or because he was poorly handled, and he can be corrected, then I say yours is his new forever home perhaps?

    (As I was typing this I looked up to read other responses - which I hadn't at the beginning - to see Dogsrule say almost the exact same thing!! Great minds as they say!)

    He's so handsome!
    Only you know if you're ready for this Occy.
    I straight away thought bit like others here that this was something Cappy put together....however, I'm guilty of getting a dog while still grieving, and I must say I was comparing her to my old dog and getting more upset. Maybe it's just worse when it's a 1 dog household. Give it good thought Occy, don't feel pressured!

    We got Axle when we were still grieving the sudden loss of our two previous dogs, and Axle just seemed to mend that hole in my heart. I knew Lucy & Elka sent him to us because he had their exact same personality.

    I agree with everyone else when they say Cappy sent this beautiful dog to you Occy - he needs you, and you need him. I know Cappy is smiling down on you.

    Dont let the pressure of adopting him get to you.
    If you really cant deal with a new puppy right now, then dont, it wouldnt be fair to you or the pup, he will need someone who will train and love him.
    I would suggest him to someone else or just hold onto him until you find him a new home.

    I would LOVE him, hes beautiful, but I dont have the space!

    Be honest with yourself Occy - and you'll know what you can best offer him. Whether that's a referral, or a home, you'll know...
