Comment on Rehoming a pet: How to cope with the grief by Amanda foster.
I have two rescue dogs. Due to my physical and mental ill health and behavioural issues I am going to have to give the bigger and younger dog up. I have had him since he was 13 weeks old and he is now 37 kg. He is much bigger than the rescue centre told me he would be. Six months after I got him I became very ill and my husband has started working long hours. My daughter left home and the neighbour who helped me with the dogs has moved out. If I had known what was coming I would not have taken him. I now feel like I have failed him but I’m still working full time from home and fighting every day just to get out of bed. It’s not fair on him. I cannot give him the attention and exercise he needs. I feel like an utter failure. Earlier today he pulled me over whilst on the lead and attacked another dog. He’s not usually aggressive but he needs time I can’t give him. I love him so much and he’s so loving but I just can’t do this anymore. I will miss him for the rest of my life.
