Some of you might have noticed I was seeking a home for a great dog we had here. (If not, she was a German Shepherd, fully trained, wonderful, sweet dog That someone had basically abandoned here) Anywho, I had hung a few flyers for her, as we needed to rehome her before the chicks moved outside (her one downside was that she REALLY wanted to eat them...) Well we got a call about her on Thursday. The lady seemed really nice, it said Aurora Health System on my phone and she said she was a nurse, so I naturally thought good things. She told me about her two children and asked all the right questions. I was pretty sure I'd found a good home for the dog. So she comes out that night to see her and everything goes wonderfully. She brings her kids and everyone gets along really well. I'd written down everything I knew about the dog and had vet papers to boot. She took her home and I felt happy that I'd made a good choice and found her a good home. Well, she calls me on Friday and tells me she has to bring her back because it appears her youngest son is allergic and she wants a refund. She also says the dog won't stop barking (which is funny because I didnt hear a thing while on the phone with her) and is distroying her house (though in the three months we had her here she never touched a thing), and then finally she tells me that her boyfriend hates the dog and she really just needs her money back. Now I'm not a petty person, but bein 'farm' people, we have bills to pay too, and I'd paid our cable bill with the $100 she paid for the dog. I told her I'd talk to my husband and call her back. I talked to my husband who told me if the dog came back we'd keep her somehow and just pay her back for her because we all loved her so much. Then I called a good friend of mine that breeds and raises labs and asked her what she would do. She told me what shes done in the past and I called the lady back. I told her she could bring her back and I would give her something for her and pay her the rest when I was able to rehome her. She agreed that was fair and said she'd be over first thing Sunday morning. Well, Sunday morning came and went. It rolled into the evening. I called and got a machine so I left a message just asking if she was still coming by or not. Monday has now come and gone and I've not heard a thing. I left another message showing my great concern for the dog and asking her to please show me thats shes a good person by calling me and letting me know what happened. Now I'm terribly worried that a great dog is out there suffering somewhere because of money and I feel horrible. She was such a wonderful dog, and we miss her terribly. I'm mad that someone has the gall to play with someone's emotions like this and I have no idea what I should do or what I even can do about it. I guess I just needed to get this off my chest. Thanks for listening to me ramble.
