    Worst excuse

    Ok fellow rescuers.
    I know we have ALL had this thought go through our heads:
    "Just when I thought I'd heard it all...."

    What is the WORST excuse you've ever herd for somebody gitting rid of a dog?

    In my case it was a woman who turned in a drop dead GORGIOUS white female GSD.

    Ok.

    Are you ready for this?

    Better sit down.

    Take a deep breath.

    Resist the urge to scream and cuss...

    She said that she was re-decorating her home and the white dog did not match her new decor.

    Is that absolutely WRONG or WHAT??
    Never mind the dog...
    Beware of owner!!

    Those are fightin words! How shallow is that? Did you talk to her? What did you say? It would have been hard to hold back.

    Plus, it shows what a rotten decorator she is since white is the only color that goes with everything.

    I cant believe that. I didnt know weather to laugh or scream!!! That poor dog. I hope someone takes her and gives her a home that is worthy of having her. My god would you get rid of your child when you redecorated your house? I think not.

    Thats PATHETIC!!! I have only given up one dog in my entire life, and that was a little poodle puppy, and me and my mom had to move, and we ended up in an apartment. I talked to one of the people who had his siblingwho happened to be a friend of mine and he took her. Some people need to b shot. excuse me for that.

    Id like to say the one most odd reason we turned down an adopter. We have this question on our adoption screening and it says what are you going to do with the dog when you're not home? his answer was he would just KEEP THE DOG IN THE BATHTUB! is that not hilarious?!! Love yours too, people are insane!

    *** is wrong with some people.

    Are you sure that she wasn;t kidding? Are you sure that her name wasn;t Paris Hilton?

    I hate to say it, but that doesn't surprise me.

    What bothers me is when people drop their dogs off with us, or the ones I go pick up, and the owner shows NO emotion!! I'm not saying I want them to cry. But how about a kiss goodbye or a nice pat on the head with a good luck buddy, I know you will do ok.
