FREE TO GOOD HOME!

Post by Xynae » 28 Apr 2009, 13:45

Hey guys n' gals!

Ok, so my brother has a dog, a 3 year old Irish Wolfhound cross Bull Mastiff. This dog has grown up around kids, and has never learned to playfight. It is the most sooky dog in the universe, and needs a home!

This dog is a hunting breed, and can't be around cats or other dogs. She's about 60 kilos and needs daily walks (so have good body strength!) and needs a decent sized yard to play in.

She's mainly an outdoors dog, and hasn't had much experience being indoors.

If you live in Melbourne and could live with a dog like this, please PLEASE reply here ASAP! We don't want her going to the pound!

Not -quite- that big. She's about 2/3 the size of a full wolfhound.

Just to clarify the why of us giving her away:

My brother was in a very bad car accident, and has (possibly) permanantly lost the use of his left leg. As such, he can't walk her or excersise her any more.

We've phoned everyone we know, and no-one can take her (they live in apartments or have pets already) and so I've taken the drastic step of offering her free to whoever wants to spare her the sad sorry fate of the Pound, and a nasty injection.

Come on man, let's not get funny about this.

Losing a family pet is a sad affair, and it's not something I'm likely to get giggles out of.

did you end up finding the doggie a new home? :( i hope so.
We recently had to give away our 2 babies as we work away in a mine and didn't want them stuck in a dog kennel for long periods of time.
Luckily we found them a home. We had a Siberian Husky and a Border Collie, they were very hard work also.
It sucks having to give away a family pet. was the hardest thing i've had to do, that's for sure!!

I've been in the market for a Sibe for ages, but I haven't had the spare $800 for a pure bred w/ papers. Wish I'd known I could've given him/her a lovely home...

Um, my condolences to you for your brother AND his dogs sake. Both are shitty things to happen.

If you were in QLD I'd totally look after your bro's dog for you, with complete visitation rights.

Haha, Yeah she was quite expensive. :p 1500, but we got her for 800 coz we kept in very close contact with our breeder.... probably annoyed the shit out of her. Sibes are beautiful dogs!! very active and stubborn as hell but gorgeous lol
