Unhappy Utah College Student is renting abandoned puppies...

I saw this article on my facebook news feed today. The earlier news articles said none of the puppies were adopted, now all of sudden she is saying that all 11 were. I'm just not sure what I think about this. Naturally all the articles that said she didn't adopt any I can't find now :/

Rental helps to “create pet owners, people who thought they’d never have a dog. They rent a puppy, they see how much fun their kids have with it, they see the positive benefits of a dog,”
Yeah, puppies are awesome for an hour. Of course it will make people want one.
Then they get it, and reality sets in...
Hope she has some sort of contract to take back all these unwanted dogs when they are big and not cute anymore...

This comes to mind when I read this story

Do you really want a dog? This is the first question that needs to be asked. You see, most people want a puppy; they do not want a dog. A puppy is cute and triggers both maternal and paternal instincts. They seem like no problem at all. A dog, on the other hand, will get you up at the crack of dawn, will bark in the back yard, will eat your couch, and may occasionally urinate or defecate on your rug. Here's a test: If you will not consider getting an adult dog from a local shelter or over-stocked breeder, you do not want a dog. You want a puppy. And what you need is a cat. -PBurns

People like her are the reason I prefer my dog (and cats) to most people. Seriously, it never ceases to amaze me how selfish people can be.

I think it can be a positive thing for shelter and abandoned dogs who otherwise would have been euthanized or left to die on the streets. It beats the alternative. Many shelter dogs get passed around from volunteer to volunteer or to different fosters anyway. What's the difference between me going to spend an hour or two with a shelter dog and what this girl is doing? I've seen dogs in rescue who have been passed around to 5 different homes and still end up just fine and bonded in their forever home. Years ago when rental dogs first came into the scene I was really put off by it, but heck, when it comes to a homeless and abandoned dog, this sure beats a permanent premature death.

I can say from experience that I definitely don't want to keep every puppy I play with. Some are holy terrors or don't have the kind of temperament I like.

Very true, and I didn't look at it that way. It just seems to me like it could create unstable pups (being bounced around, not having consistency you know?) But as you said even an inconsistent life would be better than death I suppose. I just would worry about all the potential illness, and mistreatment they could possibly be subjected to.

Also, zelda, I know this is off topic, but I have to say this. Prime is freakin gorgeous!! I just want to hug him.

Shell, I totally see valid points on the opposite side of the argument too I don't think these pups are bounced around long enough to shelter any deep emotional effects from it, I look at it more as an awesome opportunity for lots of socialization with many different types of people. I would hope that the girl has protocols and rules set in place to protect their health and safety!


And Prime says thank you m'lady!

When you bring up those points, very valid! I can totally see how it could be a positive thing for the puppies.

You're welcome, Prime..you handsome boy you.

His name is also awesome (as are your other dogs names).

I agree with this. But IMO she would be better off renting out DOGS and not PUPPIES if she was really wanting to help

There are pros and cons but since young puppy minds are like sponges, safe and positive socialization with as many different types and ages of people as possible can only benefit the pup as it matures. I love our puppies in rescue to go to foster homes with adults, kids, other dogs, cats, small animals, and people that will expose them to different public environments. More positive exposure when working with a blank slate = better well adjusted dog and easier dog to work with in certain situations. At school, our dogs, cats, and small animals are worked with and enriched by all different students. This is incredibly beneficial for the puppies and kittens because they get used to different people restraining them, handling them, and desensitizing them to certain procedures that they need good and calm manners for(nail trims, vaccines, X-rays, grooming, blood drawing...).

I meant that adult dogs need homes. Puppies are easy to adopt out. And its easier to rent out a puppy and have pretty much anyone want it, vs an adult dog.
I dont understand why shes only adopting out puppies.

I think my problem with this is that I don't understand her intentions behind this. Puppies are popular so I'm wondering if she is doing this just for profit and I just don't feel that's ok. What I originally read was none of the puppies were adopted then she came out and said they were. So I don't know what the truth actually is. Maybe there was too much backlash so she said they all got adopted.

The way some otherwise nice people treat animals? Ugh
I would never be able to sleep at night for worrying.

God, people make me sick. Not just the greedy person that came up with the idea in the first place to do it, but the people that actually pay "rent" on a puppy. Why not volunteer at an animal shelter?
