These particular folks missed out on the companionship that a pet can offer simply because they did not adopt a pet who was more suited to them. The poor dog has led, up to this point, a less than happy life because his owners were overwhelmed by him. Hopefully we will be able to find this guy a home or rescue who understands his needs and he can thrive in his new home and live a happy life.
Please do not choose a pet on how it looks - it is more important that the personality and size compliments your lifestyle. It is essential to understand the personality traits of particular breeds so you can make an informed decision. Once this happens it is also essential to commit to this animal for his entire life.
Yes, we understand even after taking the time to make a responsible decision, it sometimes doesn't work out. But the odds are higher if you are clear on what you are willing to tolerate, what you can handle and the needs of that particular pet. This way chances of everyone being happy — pet and human — are much higher.
