Another Pet Blogger Hop Saturday

Sometimes it happens that a dog (or other animal), no matter how loved, is in an incompatible situation.  And to be the best advocate for that dog is to find her a new home where the environment, the situation, the family is better suited.

We had this situation unfold over the last couple weeks.  A wonderful young dog was living on a farm.  But she somehow got hold of a very, very young baby farm animal and killed it.  So the family had to decide whether it was a training issue, a rehoming issue, or a euthanasia issue.  We worked with them, tested the dog, observed the dog and recommended rehoming.  Last night, a friend connected us with a family looking for a dog.  It looks like it's going to be a perfect match!  For this dog, it just took a little while to find the right home for her.  We are happy to have been a part of this dog's new life and are thrilled to know that she will live a long and happy life.

It's the Saturday Pet Blogger Hop -- enjoy these great blogs!!!
