Pit Bull In Need Of Home, FAST!
So, as a new member of the Dog Legislation Council of Canada, I am passing along this message, in the hopes that maybe someone out there can help. Anyone out there know of anyone looking to adopt a young dog? Detaru, I know that you were asking me a while back if you should get another Pittie (sorry for the passing of your companion…). Orca, you’re a Pit enthusiast… know anyone who might be able to help? Just a shot in the dark, but the more it can get spread, the more possibilities there are. This poor dog only has until this Sunday. I’m sure that shipping internationally could be arranged somehow. Just thought I’d put this out there! Thanks for reading!

“Please cross post and see if we can make this work. Contact Lois @ loisjackson@sympatico.ca London/St. Thomas area

Hi:

Here is a picture of the new pitbull at the pound. She is absolutely gorgeous!!
Her name is Bacardie, she is about 2 yrs old, looks like she has been bred.
She is super friendly, cries when left, meets and greets well, clean in her cage, happy tail.
She has a soft gaze, no fear or hesitation, very balanced.

The story is that she was left abandoned in a crate in a vacated apartment.
She seems to be in good health, a little redness or rash...stress/allergies/? Nothing serious or extreme.

Bacardie has until Sunday July 23rd for adoption/rescue. Can anyone help this girlie?

Thanks
Lois”

Help find me a home!

If you were closer to where Tim is, I could snag her across the border to a friend of mine ... I'm only a few hours south of BC. *sigh*

Damn continent for being so big ...

Honestly, if it was a serious, good home, I'm sure that we could arrange flying her over. I think it might have to be a strong possibility, since everyone in Ontario seems to be trying to get rid of these dogs because of the ban... she would probably need to be shipped out of the province anyway. I would be willing to house her temporarily, pay for shots and spaying/microchipping, and get her started on training if a potential owner would pay for shipping. I'm sure shipping a dog by plane can't cost anymore than a one-way trip for a person. Possibly much less, as animals are treated as cargo. O.o

Well, I'll ask my friends the next time I see them. They have a decently big place, several unused kennels (all their dogs -- a population that varies as they take in strays and find homes -- generally have the run of the place). The last time I was there on July 4th, they had two pitbull pups. I'll be housesitting for them actually starting the middle of next month ..... so looking forward to it, even with 2 hour commutes each way to work, its worth it ... just something about being surrounded by so many dogs, and all of 'em love me to pieces ... just about literally as the Dane, alpha of the dogs, likes to pounce me along with the rest of them. :p

I found I was pretty miserable, though, being out of driving range when I had my beloved German Shepherd boarded after I lost a place to stay in which I could have a companion. She passed away there from lymphoma and I couldn't even get there in time to say goodbye. :/

I know about this dog through Bullies in Need. From what I'm hearing there is a lot of interest in her, one applicant in particular looks very promising. Here's hoping it works out.

Nobody takes apartment dwellers seriously, all I get are dirty looks and upturned noses when I'm inquiring about dogs. I'll probably end up having to give up on owning another bully.

Well, I hope that there is a serious interest in her by Sunday, in any case. If not, I sent Lois an e-mail late last night offering my home as an alternative to euthanasia, if a permanent home could not be found for her by Sunday. As long as they would be willing to drive her here from London, I would be willing to foster her and continue to look for a forever home for her.

So, on the chance that I should end up with this dog by the end of the week, I just wanted to see if you would actually consider taking her? I'm under the impression, from your response, that you would in fact like to adopt another Bully, but are discouraged due to Shelters who are not willing to adopt out to people who live in apartments (that is such discrimination... I've known plenty of very happy apartment-dwelling dogs)? That is of course if your apartment does, in fact, allow pets?

If the answers to both of these questions is "yes" then I would be more than happy to hand her over to your care, if I should actually get her in the end. Let me know what your thoughts are? :)

For what it's worth, if it wasn't for all the quarentine stuff i'm sure I could find a place with the other puppies here,. :(

She looks like a sweetie... sadly I can't take on another pet. Do you have anyone who can do a CGI on her? If she's a good candidate, I can place her to be trained to be a service dog. But I wouldn't want to get anyone's hopes up on her until she's temerment tested.


... if you need a foster family, I'm all over it. But I'm not going to adopt. Contact me if you want to talk more.
