I'm not some activist or anything, but being a B owner who is dedicated certainly leaves one to feel a lot of disappointment when reading through the available rescues on BRAT…
"placement reason: Max was not coping well in his previous home (2 adults, a teen, a 6 y/o, and 1.5 y/o twins, 2 other dogs and a cat). His previous family had a very hectic life and couldn't provide the attention and exercise Max needed."
- One would think a housefull of people could take care of a dog especially since they have two others to take care of...they obviously have plenty of time to procreate!
"placement reason: Have 2 yr old that requires a lot of attention, small living area, both parents full time occupations - Rai needs owners who can care and spend more time with him."
-Why even get the dog then? Jeese, manage the situation...don't abandon the dog!
"likes both men and women? Yes, but is cautious of people."
-Came from a puppy mill. No wonder it's cautious of people. Prolly been treated terribly and hasn't even seen many people.
"likes strangers? Can be skittish around strangers. Best to give him a chance to warm up "
-I imagine I would be wary of people also if this was my SECOND time on the BRAT available adoptions page in the past year...
Just make me so sad.. Grrrrrr! :mad:
