It is worthy what E-Rescue does, however we recently adopted a dog that they knew had several issues. For example the dog must have been previously abused. When we took the animal they couldn't event him to go for a walk inside the the Petsmart. We tired to take him to the groomers at Petsmart and they couldn't groom him he was just too nervous. We then paid for a mobile pet groomer to come to the house and groom the dog. The dog never barked...ever. It was always scared and backing itself in corners. We would take him on walks to the park, but it was a challenge bc every car that passed by made the poor thing jump to the point that he would wet himself. We tired dog training to help him over come his skittishness but it didn't work. However, I think the worst part of it was after working with the dog so much and trying so hard to get him acclimated to his new environment it turn out that I was majorly allergic to the dog durning the month we had him, I had excessive nose bleeds and the allergy had given me recurring sinus infections to the point of two Z packs later and an allergy test it was recommended by my doctor that we give up the dog. We loved the dog and had put in so much work to get him to even just walk on his leash and to eat, that we didn't want to give him up. But I had been sick for a month and the toll on my health was too great so we called e-rescue and told them the dog wasn't working out. Upon returning the dog to the Petsmart one of the women made the remark to my husband that the dog seemed abused. After being sick for a month, and heavily accommodating the dogs needs from doggy daycare, to training sessions, to mobile dog groomers. I was offended by such a statement. I felt as if she was being bitter that the dog didn't work out. My husband then told her; He is much better than he was before because the day we got him from you he was so skittish that you guys couldn't even get him to walk around the store and I had to carry him to the car just to get him home. Today he walked in on his own and on his leash. I hope that the dog is able to find a great home. E-Rescue should also know that people that abuse animals do not give them up to organizations to help find them good homes. People who hurt animals are sick and we are not those people. We loved him we just weren't able to keep him due to my health and thought that he deserved a family that could pet him and a cuddle with him and not have it affect their health. I hope you can find him a good home. I think an older person that doesn't move around a lot with a very quite environment would be the perfect owner for him. We are broken hearted today that we couldn't keep him and will miss him deeply.
