Snarky Friends

Long story short:

I feel like I save a dobe's life today. I helped get her placed in a rescue (before the rescue agreed I posted her on my Facebook). She was scheduled to be euthanized today. In the mean time, a friend posted on my Facebook wall how I am a hypocrite because my dogs were not adopted. (his were) I responded that it is not about my dogs or his dogs, it is about this dog.

Does anyone else ever get poor feedback from others like this? I realize now (because of DT) that byb are not the best decision to make. But he doesn't know this. He only knows humane society vs. everything else.

My Grandma is the president & founder of East Coast Asian Dog Rescue. She's pissed that I bought Juno.
She's also pissed that I have animals for slaughter.

I've only ever gotten it once from a friend who is active in rescuing and has two rescue dobes herself. However, she was still pretty polite about it.



No dog is at fault for being born into this world.

Why do people think that since you didn't adopt this time then you must be against all adoptions or something. It caught me off guard and hurt my feelings/pissed me off.

Not yet, but I'm sure I'll get some grief someday. However, today Nova and I were at the vet picking up heartworm stuff. There were two ladies waiting and the one was there because she had rescued some 20 day old puppies. They were both petting Nova and talking about having nothing but shelter animals and always doing rescue. Awk-ward. But they were very nice ladies, I am the one who felt funny.

I believe in rescue. I also believe in having the dog that you want in your house. If you wanted to get a puppy and raise that puppy yourself? That's your choice. If you want to take in a rescue dog? That's your choice. Not your friend's. Your friends make their own choices. You make yours.

Click here to find out how sandy2233 became a supporter
I strongly believe in shelters. Support the local one alot. When I made a decision to get another dober pup (after I waited 11 years). That is what I wanted. I was torn between getting a shelter dog but this would be a dog I wanted to show and I wanted to make sure the raising of the dog around my grandchildren would be in my accordance. I wouldn't take the chance of an unknown trigger, setting a response off around kids. By raising the puppy. I would have better insite on bringing her up and exposing her to kids. But this was a personal choice for me and what I felt would work best for me and the dobie. I couldn't have a dog aggressive dog in my work situation and I didn't want to struggle with that battle. Emmie loves my grandkids, but she is not comfortable around others and I am not sure she would welcome a "young adult" or a little person coming in our pack. I have to expose her more to teen agers being around her.

Growing up, my family had always had shelter dogs. When my husband and I started walking about getting a puppy, we knew we would go to a breeder for our first Doberman. We wanted the breeder support, and to start with a puppy because we have a young child. I felt weird to me buying a dog, but I knew it was right for us.

We do support rescues though. I volunteer with a Dobe rescue here in town, and I always recommend them, or good breeders when people ask me about my dog.

There will always be people being negative, and if it is a friend, you can always try to explain yourself, and educate them. Or just shake it off and ignore them. Either way, don't let them get you down.
