New home for Jimmie

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Yes....I decided it was time to get rid of my boxer, Jimmie. He just has been getting too aggressive with the other dogs and with my cats, so I found him a GOOD home with not cats and no kids. A guy and his fiance just have 2 other dogs and they are their children, so I think he will do okay. I just miss him ALOT-but its for the best, I believe. Please if you can spare some hugs, I will appreciate it.

I'm so so sorry. I know how you must be feeling right now. We've never had to find a new home for a dog, but we're facing that same dilemma right now about our cat. I know how hard that must have been... I KNOW you did the right thing. Will you be able to visit him?

How hard this must be on you! But I applaud you for finding him a good home that he will be happy in. Will the new owners let you come visit him once in awhile?

I am soo sorry but it sounds like you made the right decision and put your feelings aside and did what was sincerly in the best interest of Jimmy. I applaud you for being so selfless and caring You are a good mommy! I have had to rehome one of our dogs before (It was a VERY aggressive/territorial chichuah) We origionally took him in as a rescue- he had been my sisters dog...but he had become extremly violent towards her babies (who did not handly him harshly or even touch him) he growled and struck at everyone. We took him in just to try and work with him. We tried behaviorlists and different vets. Nothing worked. He bit me countless time. I really hated the dog (he was just so mean) but i felt bad for him so we tried for quite a while to make it work. (he was neutered as well) Finally, the last straw was him trying to attack my little niece when she was over one day. She was just sitting on the couch minding her own business. He would have definitely done some damage had i not cought him in time. That was the last straw- After that the decision was made that we had done everything we possibly could to give him a good home and work out his behaviorial issues....we rehomed him after that. We found a little retired couple who had been former chichuah breeders (they had since had all their remaining dogs neutered/spayed). They loved him to pieces and were able to give him a good home. I am gald we were able to successfully rehome him So i definitely understand what your going through sweetie- i've been there. If you need to talk, pm me

For sure Hugs to you, It's hard to give them up when they have been part of your family. I had a rottie that grew up with the cats they used to sleep on him when he was smaller. Then he just changed woke up one morning and he had My Beautiful Long Haired orange Tabby in his mouth, and it was all DH could do to get him to let the cat go, I looked at Dh and told Him I don't want him anymore If i can't trust him with the Cats I am concerned for the Grandkids, so we had to find him a home. I'm sure he will adjust but I know you will miss him

I know that you are sad, but I am glad to hear that he is doing well adjusting to his new home.

Still sending you some hugs in case you need them.
