Comment on Rehoming a pet: How to cope with the grief by Shannon.
We are surrendering our 1 year old shepherd mix we have had her since she was 8 weeks old she has been amazing loves our 4 year old son and our 16 year old little dog. We are moving out of the country next year and I’ve looked into so many different ways of being her but the cheapest was $5,300 it so much money money we don’t have that’s the reason we are moving away. I also look at her and feel bad we live in an apartment and she wants to run and play and we don’t have the space she is 65 lbs and I feel like we are holding her back not having a yard to play and run. It took me a month to finally make a choice with the rescue to take her she leaves in a week and I’m heart broken I just look at her and cry I know deep down this is the best thing for her she will be able to find a family that has a yard and can take her on adventures. I’ve never given a pet up so I’m feeling like I’m a bad person it’s so hard and I don’t even want people I know to know for them to judge me for it it been such a difficult thing my parents and aunt are the only ones that I’ve told and they have told me I’m doing what is right for her she needs more room and exercise
