Comment on Rehoming a pet: How to cope with the grief by Anita.
I just found this blog and thanks for writing this. I just surrendered my dog Archie to a breed specific rescue this past weekend. I got him at 10 weeks and he is 15 months now. I unfortunately have too many physical and mental health issues to deal with his energy. He’s a beautiful active dog who needs room to run, and another dog to play with. He loves to hunt and I hope he ends up with someone that can do that with him. As my physical issues increase over time life would’ve gotten smaller and smaller. Plus, my condo is not the right home for a dog with his needs. But – I’ve been crying non-stop thinking of him wondering where he is what is happening. I hope to get updates soon and I want him to have a great life. Last night was the first night he wasn’t cuddled up next to me and it broke me.

Rehoming a pet: How to cope with the grief
This sounds exactly like my dog, who I surrendered to a Cocker Rescue. I tried to rehome him myself but it didn’t work out. I feel that Archie should be a gun dog or given a job to do. He is a true working type of Cocker with boundless energy. Living in my condo and getting walked wasn’t enough for him He became reactive and possessive. I know he’s in good hands and they’ll find him a good home doing what he was bred to do.
