My daughter is 4,5 years old, she does not always respond well to commands, she does not really sit or roll round when you tell her either. She likes dancing and playing games, and she loves attention. Gets along well with other kids and pets. She has asthma and allergies, but is otherwise a healthy child. She will make you pictures and make you laugh, she goes to bed when told, but does not like wearing a collar when walked. Can anyone open their homes for this little princess?
Did you think I was being serious??
All I wrote about my beautiful daughter is however true.
About 10 months ago we rescued an amazing French Bulldog. He was her best friend and a true member of our family. He was sick when we took him in and we have treated him and given him the best life we could.
My daughter has severe asthma and is in and out of the hospital. A few weeks ago the doctor told us that it is absolutely not a good idea to have pets in the house with her as they believe it’s making her worse.
I started looking for solutions. I found him a nice home, but SOS Bulldog Canarias said it had to go through them as that’s where I adopted him. Eventually, after many rounds with myself and lots of advice, I decided we had to do it. We had to give him up for a new home.
Today was the day. I cried leaving him and made sure this event happened while my kids were in school. It didn’t take long before I found him on Facebook, where the organization was searching for a new home for him (even though I gave them the details about the one I already found).
I have no heart. I should not be allowed around animals. I should be banned from all places you can get a dog. I should be ashamed of myself. I should have never gotten him in the first place. He is my family, how could I just give him away?
I took him in, wanted to give him a great home. Nobody could have known this would affect my daughter the way it has. And we have tried everything.
If you had to choose between your daughter and your dog – WHAT WOULD YOU CHOOSE?
Please share this post to raise attention both around dogs and other animals who are in need of new homes, but also to stop the big mouths of bigoted people who have no idea what they are talking about!
