I've had dogs all my life and just recently have paid for a brand new little pup.
However, a bit of an accident due to BAD Melbourne weather.
My fence in the backyard has literally fallen to pieces. I mean, it's still up but it has parts missing, holes... etc. I'm renting and work part time, I cannot afford to pay for a new fence myself and the owner of this house will take his sweet ass time repairing it. The neighbour... Well, apparantly he is going to replace the fence but I don't know when.
The pupstar will be inside most of the time but while I'm at work she will be outside.
Can I ask what you would do in this situation?
IE: Keep the dog on a long chain until you are back home then let her off.
IE: Call the breeder and explain the situation, ask the breeder to hold the dog for a bit longer until the fence is fixed (keeping in mind this could be months)
IE: Not bringing the pup home at all
Sigh... I don't know what to do.
