Umm... read back through my posts... I have a dog living with another family member because I couldn't give him what he needed - more space than a suburban yard offered.
That is not what the issue is. The issue is the tired old excuse of "moving interstate". Moving isn't a good enough reason!
Jonbax, the apartment I had in inner Sydney (yes in the city itself) was rented. I had my ACD cross with me. I got that apartment over a couple with a silky terrier and another single girl with a Chihuahua. I got that because I included a 'resume' for my dog. I had a letter from my dog training group & references from my old landlord and neighbours.
Saying we're rehoming because we're moving is not good enough. It's not hard to find pet friendly rentals, there's even a website set up for exactly that!!
Bulldog_Lover: The reason given in the original post was "because we are moving interstate". Is that acceptable to you? If so, good on you. I think it's pathetic! No-one would say that your grandmother was a bad person in her case and no-one was ever saying that.
