Would you all be willing to help me?
« on: March 18, 2010, 06:17:54 PM »
If I decided to go the rescue route would you all be willing to help me find one? I just went to pet finder and right now there is nothing available but there has to be more resources out there that I can use right?

Did a quick google search for Boxer rescues in TN. You can also look into rescues in another state.

May I ask why you are thinking about rescue (don't get me wrong, it is all I have done for the past 25 years) just wondering

It is something I have considered before but didnt pursue in a big way because I wasnt in a position to do so. Then the puppy came along and got me thinking again.

One thing to consider with rescue - they will do a home inspection and interview. It's a good thing, but with some of the things you've told us about your husband's attitude, I'm just not sure how it would go over on either side.

I havnt ditched anything. Please dont make assumptions. I am not sure if you have kept up with the story or not where Isis is coming from but at this point I am not sure that it is going to work out. I am praying it is because my heart is breaking right now. Crying so hard I can hardly see the screen as a matter of fact.

I will know tomorrow for sure what is going to happen until then I would rather not go into details.

Well a puppy or a dog is a 100% committment.  If you are second guessing anything with this pet, then I personally (and dont take this the wrong way), but I dont think you should get a dog....right now.

Resuces are flooded as well as Craigslist of people who thought a dog was a good idea, and then it was not, either they did not have the time to train, they cannot afford it, lost jobs, etc so they are dumped rehomed or placed.  Poor dogs, its not their fault but breaks my heart that people dont think and research and make the 100% commitment before adding one.

Not saying this will be you at all but seems like you are all over the board.  Doubting what you want - puppy, or rescue, financial decisions with hubby with regards to food etc.   I think you should think everything over with your family.   Dogs and puppies are not like cats and are a lot of work and dont come cheap.   

Good Luck in your decision.

Thanks for making me feel worse :sad2: for what its worth I am not second guessing myself on this puppy. I want her with all my being. The hurt is a physical thing inside me. It may turn out that I am worrying for nothing but it may not. This is not my decision it is up to the guy I am getting her from.

well I guess I must have missed something...is the owner of the pups changing his mind?  What happened...if I am being too nosey, sorry.

She said she didn't want to elaborate until she knows what's happening, so we're all in the dark as to the exact situation.  We just know she isn't changing her mind, it's something on the other end.

Yes that is correct. I have in no way changed my mind on getting her I made a commitment and will see it through if I am able. I am such a mess right now :sad2:
