    Default Drover the Wobbly dog........now he's howling.

    So now my Wobbly dog has increased his howling and whining.
    Like the second you walk away from him, he starts and DOES NOT LET UP.
    He's at his worst when he's untied and allowed to roam around the back yard.
    He's much quieter when he's tied up and restrained.
    Anyone who knows his story well, knows why i have to do this.
    Please help me guys.........what do i do with this??
    Husband wants him GONE.......I'm waiting for neighbours to complain.
    What do i do with this little guy??

    'Rambo'smum' - really feel for you and Drover.

    Questions I always ask myself - with pups - are to do with the quality of life of the pup. It is very hard to give a yes or no answer to your question.

    Talk to your vet and ask them what they would do if Drover was their dog. I have asked that question quite a few times of my vet and always got the answer that I knew in my heart was the correct one.

    Take care and heaps of for you and Drover.

    Thanks. I'm just at a total loss now.
    As i type he's whining away.
    I don't like at all the situation i have to keep him in
    but he goes for oour other dog and its the only way to keep things
    under control. I'm not happy at all.
    I just don't know what to do for him anymore.

    You're not happy, the dog is not happy nor comfortable with life any more. If he was my dog I think it would be time to PTS.

    The question to ask is "Can you provide this dog with some sort of quality of life?" If not, can you find anyone else who may be able to? If the answer to that question is no, I think PTS may be the most human solution.

    I recently heard of a somewhat similar case. The woman - kind hearted but very unemotional - had her rescue dog PTS because her only remaining option was to tether him all the time. I was shocked at first, but ended up thinking it was a brave and kind decision.

    But very, very hard, especially for those of us who feel before we think. I feel for you but the situation sounds untenable and some sort of change is urgently needed by the sound of it.

    Hugs...

    Rambo's Mum - why you? Because you are a wonderful, caring person who has tried their absolute hardest to give Drover the best life possible.
    A lot of people would've given up a long time ago and dumped him at the pound or with somebody else but you stuck through it and gave him a great quality of life.

    It's never an easy decision to make but you are doing the right thing and must remember how lucky Drover is to have ended up in such a loving, caring environment.


    Thinking of you
