    Dan, there are a number of reasons why people move. It could be a forced moved because they have lost their family home. I toculd be a forced move due to divorce, serious illness or disability. Don't be so quick to judge people re-homing their dogs.

    I agree with Anne. We should try to offer advice to make sure the dog goes to a good home. For instance I would not be advertising the dog as "free to good home" to many of these dogs get picked up by the wrong type of people ie: puppy farmers if the dog is not desexed, dog fighters for a bait dog or people who just cant afford to properly take care of a dog. Please put a price on the dog even if it is minimal.

    Also is the dog desexed? Vaccinated? Microchipped? When was its last vet check? Do you have any pictures?

    Take her to the RSPCA or Animal Welfare League. That way they can find a good home for her and in the meantime she will be looked after.

    Not usre that is such a good thing to do actually. Depending on what she is crossed with, the RSPCA are likely to euth her, particularly if she looks like failing their 'at times extreme' temp tests.

    The RSPCA only euthanise an animal if it has behavioral issues that can't be corrected or a medical condition that can't be fixed either (what they told us when we did our volunteering induction). There use to be plenty of staffy mixes in there for adoption that didn't state what it was crossed with (because they didn't know).

    I am fairly sure the Animal Welfare League have a zero euthanasia policy though, and they are only at Coombabah on the Gold Coast, so they would probably be a better choice.

    Just my two cents worth, I would rather the dog go there than to some random who may not look after it, or is getting it because it's free.

    The RSCPA was going to euth a Pug x that came in. They rang me to see if I could take it otherwsie it would be euth'd. The reason? It had flea bite dermatitis and the owner who surrendered it said it kept failing house training.

    Both of these conditions were treatable and fixable.

    I am a supporter of the RSPCA in most instances, but I also know their record for euthing dogs, and particularly bull breeds.
