I haven't been on here for a few weeks due to surgery, family matters, and a complete and total upheaval of my house. I have had some fairly serious health matters, and my doctor and husband have decided I must re-home one of my dogs. I've never had to do this before. I don't want to just give her to some stranger. She's a small doxie/JRT mix - very high energy, but just as happy to snuggle on the sofa and watch tv. She's crate trained, house trained, and has a very low-maintenance coat. Gracie is pretty aggressive at seeking out what she wants - be it food, attention, or anything else. She's also a a whiny-butt. She's friendly with older children and other dogs (of similar size). She weighs between 10 and 15 pounds. She came from our local humane society, which is having problems right now and is overflowing full. I don't want to take her back there, as I want to be sure she's going to just the right home. I don't want to just put an ad on craigslist. Nor do I want her to go back to the stress of a shelter. The main reason she has to be re-homed is because she wrapped her lead around my legs earlier this week, and I tripped and fell. I honestly look like I've been in a bar brawl, as she did this not once, but three times within a matter of days. As some of you may already know, I am disabled due to a fall down some stairs some years ago. I also have rheumatoid arthritis, which is rapidly worsening, and I have difficulty walking because I can't feel my feet or lower legs most of the time. I have an inherited form of anemia called Thallassemia. When I adopted Gracie, I had no problems taking care of my dogs. Now, though, my husband and doctor are kind of forcing me to do this. My Sheltie, Bela, is a less active dog, and easier to handle, plus being my heart dog. I need to be talked through this traumatic experience. Help!!!!
