i’m sorry but I think what your dad did was really wrong and horrible. I’m kind of shocked that someone would just do that to a family pet.

My Mom did this to me.  I landlord said she’d kick me out if I didn’t find a place for my shih tzu that I loved with all my heart.  I had 8 months left on my lease so I gave the dog to my parents.  She wasn’t potty trained (extremely stubborn) and ruined their carpet.

One day I went to my parents to find that my Mom had given my dog away because she couldn’t deal with it anymore.

5 years later and i’m still so heartbroken.  I reacted the same as you.  I know it’s an awful feeling – I hope you find who has the dog and you can take care of it.  Please keep us updated!

Family dog = family decision, IMO

 

I’m so sorry. 🙁

I feel so sorry for you! I hope you find out he’s happy and healthy. Most people do try to be good, responsible pet owners, so please don’t worry too much! I’m sure he’s OK just missing  you!

Still, how terrible and unfeeling of your parents 🙁

I’m so so so sorry. I can’t imagine the hurt you must be feeling. I would be torn between raging anger at my father and distress and worry about my poor baby.l I really, really hope it works out and you either get him back or found out he went to a great home.

OMG what a shitty thing for your dad to do. I’d make him find that guy so you can check out the living conditions and if he brushes it off I’d totally give him an earful.

@Amayansong:  I really really hope that you find your dog, that’s so sad.  Try and forgive your dad though, he did what he thought was best, even if he clearly didn’t think it through very well.  Good luck >.<
