Thread: Male MalteseXshih Tzu. 3 Year Old. QLD

  1. #1

    Default Male MalteseXshih Tzu. 3 Year Old. QLD

    We have recently had a child and unfortuntly we dont have the time and attention for him that he needs. His name is Deejay and he is 3 years old this year, he is not de-sexed. He needs a family that will give him alot of attention, he loves to play and he is well behaved. He is the perfect lap dog. Preferably no small children around. He has always been a very cute and loving dog from the day we got him. It is a regretful give away and he will be a very missed dog. We will gladly send some pictures of him on request!

    I dont think I know quite how to approach this one....
    Can i ask why having a baby means you cannot also have your lovely pooch? Is there aggression issues?

    Good question ChoppaChop
    I have come across half a dozen of women in the last few months who are getting rid of their dogs because they've just had a baby.

    I wish some ppl would take pet ownership serious, a pet is a life time commitment no matter what situation arises etc, wonder if these ppl would just give away their child cause it no longer fits in their with lifestyle or it misbehaves..

    Careful guys....although I know just how angry you are ( as am I) but lets see if maybe we can help educate or come up with a better solution then just 'off loading ' the lovely pup due to new bub.

    Surely there is a way you can work something out stephandkash with your pooch and your bub?

    *sigh*

    If Deejay is such a perfect little lap dog then why can't you keep him? You purchased a puppy and this puppy has trusted you with his life and now you are willing to dump him.

    I have a question on my applications forms that asks if the applicant is intending on starting a family in the near future. I rarely allow people to adopt who answer this question with a 'yes' and this is an example of why.

    Deejay has been our best friend for the past 3 years and as i said it is so hard for us to give him away, It is not fair on deejay to be locked out side all day because of his dislike for children (hence, why i said no small children). Please dont mock my dicision because it is hard enough on us to be doing this.
    A baby has everything to do with giving away animals, i would chose my daughter over this dog...atlease we arent dumping him on the streets. Not that its any of your bussiness but the new bub takes all of our time and that is why we dont have time to nerture his needs. We have tried everything to resolve this problem but as i said we dont have the time to sort out his issues. Its either put him down (because of aggresion) or give him to someone that would help him. Im sorry if i have offended anyone but this is our decision. Not yours!

    Interesting though that you NEVER once say he is aggressive toward children here in this description. In fact you describe him as;
    *He needs a family that will give him alot of attention
    *he loves to play
    *he is well behaved
    *He is the perfect lap dog
    *He has always been a very cute and loving dog from the day we got him

    Yes, you mention that it is 'preferable' that there are no small children but that is only a 'preferable' and not a definite.

    The reason is either because you thought you would play down this VERY important piece of info or you only say that he is because it makes you feel better because you have a legitimate excuse to dump him.

    Sorry, your cries of 'don't blame me, we really love him' are falling a little short.

    Before you buy the next dog, THINK long and hard about the future of that dog.

    If you are serious about loving him, desex him before looking for his new home to minimise the risk of abuse in his future.

    As I said, I ask the question on my applications to avoid people like you.
