swellmomma Posted August 21, 2012 Share Posted August 21, 2012 I came to the hard decision tonight that my family is not the right one for Onyx our 4.5 month old puppy. I received my second noise complaint ticket today due to his excessive barking. He will not potty outside. As in crying and pulling on leash to get in and then going potty inside not out. Nipping constantly. It is harming my daycare business. It is causing massive stress in out home. We all love him but we all also hate him. He is so young, I would rather rehome him now when he has a better shot at finding the right home. Than to try for another 4 months and have it even harder to do so. All my kids understand why he has to go and more than that, they are not even saddened by it. (These are kids that weep for random animals injured on the side of the road, and volunteer at the SPCA each week etc). Really hoping I can find a new family for him quickly before I get a 3rd ticket. As it is I can not keep up with his exercise needs because of my health and schedule and he pulls too much for the kids to safely take him. WHen I get a pet it is with the notion that they will be here forever but we are not the right family for him. No flames please for giving him up. I only want what is best for him and we aren't it.
