    Default My gorgeous,pampered poodle is looking for a new family!!

    Folks,

    I am looking for a physically active couple to adopt my baby. She is accustomed to several ousting's everyday. She is also accustomed to frequent trips to the vet, and groomer.
    All of her shots are up to date. She has also been fixed.

    Princess has had a wonderful life with our family. Unfortunately, she is aggressive with our toddler.
    Thus, to keep the peace in my household, I have grudgingly agreed to put her up for adoption.

    I'm not convinced that you are thinking clearly about this. There are numerous reasons keeping the dog and giving the toddler away make sense. Let me give you a few:

    1. Dogs don't go to college. Have you seen the costs of college?

    2. The dog is I'm sure housebroken. The toddler is no where close to being housebroken.

    3. The dog was there first.

    4. The dog is fixed as you say. You cannot legally fix the toddler.

    5. Toddlers cry a lot. The dog would prefer to take a nap.

    6. The dog is small and will get no bigger. It eats a small amount of food. You have no idea how much the toddler will eat as it grows bigger.

    7. The dog can communicate as well as the toddler but the dog doesn't complain and never will.

    8. I haven't seen a picture of the toddler but I'm sure the dog is better looking. That's a beautiful little girl.

    Princess, reacted with some aggression just to stop the kid from pulling on her tail. The dogs aggressive episode is just part of the story.

    My dear wife has this pre-conceived notion, that the dog will infect
    our newborn with some type of virus.
    This is pure non-sense, which , has been re-enforced by the babies Pediatrician.

    She is a wonderful. playful little gal!!

    Sounds like the training needs to consist of:

    1) Training your kid that she NOT pull any animals' tail.

    2) Training the wife that the dog will NOT give the child a virus.

    Why penalize a wonderful animal because of uneducated or experienced humans? The humans are easier trained.

    I am a big dog lover. But some homes are just not ment to have animals. It doesn't mean the people are bad animal owners, the the circumstances dictate its better to give the pup away. Lets be honest sounds like the wife has her mind made up, so why fight a battle you won't win. Do the dog.right and find it a home where every member wants the dog. The dog will be happer on the end and the o.p. will have peace.

    well, have you pondered the third option, which is to give away your wife?
