First off i hope this is the right category to post this in-lol my sister was giving this mix im not even really sure what its mixed with its a tiny little thing im thinking a chihuahua and poodle the pup is about 3 pounds and 4 pounds- her sister in law bought the pup and couldnt handle it anymore and my sister i guess felt sorry for the thing and my sister took it- which really irked me to begin with - she had bought a brown lab pup gosh 6 months ago if that and had the thing out side for oh about a month and decided she didnt want it anymore and found a home for it- she said she wasnt home enough to care for it and i was always on her butt about keeping him out side and this and that- well i think she took this tiny pup because of me and my little pups- my sister always trys to get things i have- i know werid but true- so she has this little tiny pup that i know she is negleting- her boyfriend was over the other day and telling me that this dog is so stupid- and saying they keep him in the basement ( which is finished and the kids bedrooms are down there) but he poops all over and then he eats it because he knows hes going to get a spanking- i was like what? i told him dont spank the pup hes eating his poo for some other reason medical maybe- and asked what food they feed the little guy he didnt know- and says he poops and pees everywhere and i know that my sister is sick of this dog already- guess i should add im not talking to my sister and havnet for a month now- family things i guess you would call it- but before i was on her in every email and phone call asking what she fed the pup and if shes taking him in for shots and this adn that. im sure he came from a mill in detroit area . thats where he came from. and he had fleas super bad when she got him from her sister in law- and i doughht shes done anything to take care of them- I really have always worried about this little tiny pup since she got it knowing she got it to be like me- lol and she would get sick of it and she doenst have time to train it and play with it ect- her kids are monsters and use to shove the cat in the dryer- they are a few years older but her youngest is 5 and oldest is 12 but im sure they mistreat the thing- i dont think me being worried is for norhing i know how she is- i wish i was talking with her just so i could find out how the pup was doing- even tho i know its not doing well- im sure no shots and he started lifting his leg to pee so the boyfriend told me as i was girlling him whne he was here so i could find out how the little guy was doing-
and trust me i really dont want anther dog- my 2 are more then i can handle but should i god get over my being ticked off at her for other reasons and come out and ask if she wants me to take the dog? i asked hubby a few days ago if she got rid of it could we take him and he said you really want that thing- hes nappy looking but he just needs some one to love and give him attention. she works midnights so she is never home- and then sleeps all day- my sister is younger then i am by 2 years she is 30- i did ask her why she got this dog when she just got rid of the lab- which i asked her how she could just ditch her dog off and not feel bad about it but then get a differnt one a few months later and she said he was smaller and was sooo cute and that the sister in law was mean to him and she didnt want him but then ended up taking him- should i just keep my nose out of it or should i just email her and ask if she wants anther easy out and i would take chico- hate the name of coarse but this poor thing i just keep thinking of him roaming the basement pooping every where and eating it because he is afraid hes going to get his a$$ beat and this is what the boy friend said- should i offer to take it so i can find him a new home? should i just keep him>? he is cute tho- very small i kept asking her what it was whne she got it but she wasnt sure she kept saying a yorkie and chi and then it was a chi and poodle and a few others but i dnt think at all its any yorkie- its all white and a very pointy little nose and very white fluffy tiny thing-
any one have any ideas? should i just butt out and let her do her thing? even tho were not talking i do feel like i want to eamil her and ask her how her pup is doing- maybe she would offer him to me im sure at a cost- she did pay 200 to the sister in law for this pup wihch the sister in law paid 600 for him. but being 4+months old is he set in his ways? with in sure no teaching at all- she says she potty pad trains him but of coarse he isnt going on the pads. when we were talking i was giving her tips and telling her to go get shots and that banfeild had wellness days that she wouldnt get charged a office visit and told her good foods to feed him adn this and that- knwoing she only wanted the dog because she knows how much i love mine and spoil them and she wanted what i had- even tho mine are this small- any sujestions on what i could say to her? or should i tell her to get her act together or i will have no choise but to turn her in for neglete? is this neglete? wow 3 puppies well bentley is 1 year old but daisy is the 5 months . help..... what should i do? i dont even think she likes the dog- and all i can picture is her youngest flinging the thing around. her one daughter was here with the boyfriend and she said all chico does is bark- so what should i do
I think you would be basically saving this little guy, and the fact that he is still a puppy will make the transition much easier. I adopted my Yorkie at 1 1/2 yrs old, and she was not in the least bit potty trained as she grew up on a farm and had never lived inside a home. It took alot of patience, but now at 3 1/2 she rarely has an accident. The longer your sister holds onto this little guy with little socialization (living in the basement) and no obvious attempt to potty train, the worse chance he will have later on finding a good home. I would love to see him, he sounds adorable!!
Yes, this is what i thought of to, maybe find him a good home. I just know as soon as i got the little guy in my home i wouldnt want to give him up. It surly isnt his fault that my sister does nothing at all with him and this is how he turned out. poor thing. i was so mad at her and told her to when she bought that akc lab and had it a month ( again getting a dog because i had one) and kept it out side, and then she did find some one to take her, she was just a pup. She works at the hospital so a nice man took him and gives her updates but she told me she doesnt really care she never liked the dog- so why get anther one? she said this one was smaller and cuter- go figure- I do think i will bury the hachet and email her and ask how chico is doing- maybe she will tell me she has found a home for him or would offer him to me. wow 3 dogs that is alot. I didnt think having 2 would be that much harder but really it is. But of coarse i wouldnt change it now even if i could. I would never have the heart to give away my pups- i dont see how she can. gosh after the first few days i was so attached to bentley i didnt even like leaving him at the house when went to work- how can she just say oh i dont have time for the dog and gave it away? kinda heartless if you ask me- But i will keep you all informed on what happens, i think i need to step in and do something regardless i havent talked to her in a month and i really dont want to but i think for the dogs sake i should- or at least tell her i will take him and find him a new home if she needs me to- i know i just cant take the dog from her if she isnt willing to give him up, my sister is money hungry so im assuming if i offer the 200 she said she paid the little guy might have a chance-
if it were me i would at least try and talk her into giving the puppy to you. even if you dont want it, you could train the puppy so it can be placed in a permanent home more easily. there arent many people out there that would be willing to take on an older, not housebroken, ill mannered chihuahua, so you would be doing the dog a favor.
Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.
I say get him but tell yourself from day one that you are not going to keep him. Honestly, with all the problems you are having with Daisy, I really don't think you are equipped to add a 3rd dog with potential health/behavior problems to the mix. Convince yourself right away that you would be better off finding this puppy a loving home where he can be the absolute center of attention, rather than staying in your home where he'd have to share his time/love with 2 other dogs. Set a goal, make up flyers, put up an advertisement at the vet's office, etc that you have a puppy you are trying to find a good home for.
Never trust a tall dwarf... he's lying about something.
