    I think the in-laws are at fault here ..... Basically, you asked them to take care of your dog, they agreed...yet they didn't do it

    So sorry to hear of your loss.

    What your inlaws did is unforgiveable and this is from someone who usually believes in forgive and forget.

    However the pound must take some blame as well. I don't know if you want to go that far but this is certainly the type of story the media would be interested in.

    I wonder if your dog actually was euthed? It seems strange that a toy poodle couldn't be rehomed unless there were temperament problems (unlikely as you have young children), health issues or was very old. Was your dog desexed? If entire perhaps it was taken home by a staff member for breeding. Or perhaps your in-laws had neglected the dog and it was rescued by a staff member with good intentions. It's not all that difficult to fiddle the books.

    I actually thought the same. Perhaps you shouldn't have said "Oh don't let it happen again..." Because they win this way. Maybe threaten them a bit with complaints etc... Are you sure your inlaws liked the dog? Maybe they're one of those people who thing "oh... she has 4 kids, having a dog is a nonsense"?
    I know it's hard, because they're your ILs, but... my god I'd go nuts over it!!!
    I can only imagine what you are going through now, with newborn and all this... very sad

    I did think this too....he was a very healthy beautiful natured dog. He wasnt desexed, he was used from breeding before i got him. he had papers and champion background, his grandparents were both show dogs with awards and everything.

    I will never forgive my mother inlaw, and to think she is still claiming her innocences.

    anyway, i dont know what to do. im just sad and disappointed about the whole thing

    I am so sorry about your poor pet. Should never have happened. You should have been notified if the microchip was in your name. Your inlaws have some explaining to do...why was the dog allowed to wander?
    The more people I meet, the more I like my dogs.

    Sorry about your dog. This is really sad. I would advise you to seek legal advice from a solicitor. There are many around that give you a half hour of advice for free and tell you if you have a case or not. They could set you straight on your rights.
