People wonder why I keep two 150-pound mastiffs as house pets well thats why. Im so upset, my mom had two dogs one was a mix breed that showed up after Hurricane Rita; she put a found dog ad in the paper for a couple of weeks but nobody claimed him so she kept him. She also had a little Miniature Pincher. She kept both dogs in the house and only let them out to go bathroom in the yard, I dont know if they wandered off into the woods and got attacked there or if the coyotes had come up into the yard but they killed the little mix breed. The little min-pin managed to get away and back to the house. He was badly torn up and they rushed him to the vet but the little guy didnt make it. I feel so bad for her but I dont know what to do. She keeps insisting on having these little dogs. If the little dogs are good about staying right up next to the house and not wandering too far away she can keep them but if they go out into the woods thats all she wrote. My mom is going to be 80 years old in September and she really enjoys having her little dogs. I know she is going to ask me to help her find another dog and I really dont want to tell her no but I feel really bad helping her find another dog to feed to the coyotes. What would you do?
