Jazzy I am soooo sorry this has happened to Shadow. He is a beautiful dog. I am in NC and I am willing to help you get him back if that is what you want to do. I know it has to be hard to have a dog that is loved and a part of your family and then see him in a kennel and up for adoption. Let me know if I can be of any help. I don't mind driving at all.
P&D- I think you bit off more than you could chew. You did everything but beg for these dogs when Jazzy was looking for a home for them. I think it is absolutly horrible what you have done with this dog. You were so hell bent in getting these dogs. I think the day you got him and realized it wasn't going to work out that the least you could go is make arrangements for this dog to go back home to where he is loved. Shame on you!!!!!
Jazzy just let me know if you would like for me to assist in you getting this dog back. Like I said I would be more than willing to help out. I would even take him for awhile until you get on your feet if need be. I am on 4 fenced acres, so he would not be kenneled.

the only reason I guessed that was due to a national geo program on primitive breed and hybrid- desinger breeds, and they showed how most wolf hybrids are mixed with the husky-mamlamute due to coloring, markings and that they are the closest to the wolf.
jazzy maybe it would make you feel better if pitsanddobes gave you the phone number of the person who received jazmin. not that you can tell much just by speaking to someone over the phone but your gut may react and hopefully you could tell if they are decent people or not.
as far as shadow goes.......if you want him back i can help get him back to you. i live in new jersey, about an hour outside the city. mizzi and i can work something out about getting him to me and i can meet you at the bridge or the tunnel to give him back to you. i have done this transport stuff before and am willing to do it again. north carolina and new jersey are quite a distance between each other but we can make it work if you are at all uncomfortable about shadows present situation. i cannot imagine being in your position but i am willing to do what i can to make all this right. let me know. if you need a referance on me i will give you the email address of a woman i transported a great pyrenees to in nyc. i met her on this board. if you go back thru threads and look for a poster with the name jazcatnyc you will see her and my conversations about the pyrenees.
I hope this doesnt make ppl upset but thats why i dont think ppl should adopt or agree to take dogs before they get to know them and make sure they will fit in there home. I know pics make animals look so sweet and you fall in love. But you dont know what the dog is like unless you meet them and find out its a match. That is very sad and i hope things work out for him and i think that was rude to put him up knowing she would see him. Now she doesnt know what he is going to happen to him. All she sees is her dog in a pic put up for adoption.

First of all lets clear something up. I took the dogs in for several reasons. Jazzy posted how she could not keep them because she was moving, because she was pregnant and could not handle him and various other reasons. The dogs were headed to a shelter where they would have most likely been put down. So now I am horrible because I took in two dogs I had never met from a person I never met to save their lives?? It is not that I do not like Shadow he is hyper yes but he is a big lovable lap baby and I adore him. The point is this dog is not going to have a good live in a crate in an apartment somewhere in NY where he can't run and play and Jazzy you knew that said it yourself. The dog has more room here but not enough. And even at the new place Shadow is very strong and I cannot hold him. I am not supertrainer you know I don't body build. I never begged to get the dogs I reassured her they would not be put to sleep. And they havent. And further this dog is not unloved here not to mention the fact that her husband claimed he was coming back in a couple weeks for the dog and bringing a pup instead. Yet he was going to leave the dog with Jazzy. And he never has come back. My husband loves shadow but this is not the best permanent situation for Shadow and SHADOW is more important then anyones opinion.
Dallas honestly is this really worth all the crap people dish out?
You know I am about ready to say to hell with it. EVERY single time I try to do something nice I get kicked in the face. I have done everything I could for Shadow And Jasmin and look what I get for it. The same thing will happen with all these dogs. I'll bust my hump to help out and get it right in the face. I spent 210.00 to board Shadow. I bring him home because I simply cannot afford it any longer all the while working with him trying to expell some of that energy he has and get him to calm down and I am told shame on me??? Now he spends all the time he wants out in the yard able to run and play. It still is not enough. Dallas honestly is this really worth all the crap people dish out?
Her first post tells how desperate she is and how time is running out. I took these dogs in to save their lives and possibly help find them permanent homes. Then he husband says he wants him back but doesn't take him with him. She talks to me a few days later and says "he is just going to leave the dog with me and I can't handle it" and now she wants him back because we are serching for a permanent home for him? The dog came here and his tail was nearly bald from all the wagging in the crate. And how else do you keep a dog that runs through your house like he does other then crate him. She lived in an apartment with a small baby and one on the way. Good life for the dog in a crate all the time. But you know what if she wants him back hey come get him. I thought the whole purpose of bringing him down was to save them from going to the shelter. OOPS my mistake.
as far as iam concerned if it save one dog, then yes it was worth it. if only one dog find it's perfect home then yes. who cares what is said that one dog was saved and has been give it life. i wasn't on the board when you got shadow, but i do understand that you both love this dog.
People are so ignorant and abusive and i am so sick of this. I went out of my way to help two dogs I did not even know! From a person I didn't even know! Here I am trying my best spending hundreds of dollars i don't have to spend on this dog and OH but see it was "rude" of me to put Shadow up knowing she would see him. We have talked over and over and been clear that I would keep the dogs as long as possible and if it worked out to be indefinatly then so be it. My husband wants to keep shadow but in all honesty this dog needs a home where he can run and I mean plenty of room. My husband loves Shadow BUT Shadow's need have go tto come first. My house is not done and it is cruel to keep a dog like him crated. I am sorry but I was trusted to do what is best for him and keep him safe and that is what I am doing. Jazzy knows that she cannot handle or keep that dog. I know she loves him which is why my heart went out to her. She did the best she could and now I am doing the best I can.
Shadow comes first and anyone who does not agree with that can just bugger off! I am not going to see this dog end up in some pound someplace and be destroyed because you people do not seem to understand that this dog needs a certain kind of home and owner. No Jazzy never told me he was quite as hyper as he is but so what? I could have been like many other people and said hell no come take his but back or worse stuck him with animal controll. BUT I DIDN'T! Instead I spent money I did not have to board him. I could have just put Jazmin dow because she was wanting to bite and acting all goofy but I didn't, instead I found her a home.
I am just such a horrible person and shame on me though right? This is what I am talking about Dallas this kinda bull people jumping to conclusions and know squat about nothing!
it will all work at in the end, shadow will have the best home for him, and the both of you will know he is happy. yes we (people on the forum) can be mean at times and jump on each other, but all of us have good hearts and put are animals first, we all want what is best for them, and what them to be happy, we all just need to remember this, the animals are first.
and if we all just gave up one them think what would happen. no matter what is said we have to think of them first. if i had given up on getting a cat, kitkat would have died on tuesday, instead he is here at my house, not getting along well with the dogs, but that can be worked out, all that matter is that he is loved and has a home. that what all of these animals at the kennel, shelters, and rescue groups need
