ttw16 :  according to Wiki: “Pet adoption is the process of taking responsibility for a pet that a previous owner has abandoned or released to a shelter or rescue organization. Common sources for adoptable pets are animal shelters and rescue groups.”

ttw16 :  in pet language “adoption” is synonymous with “rescue”. For people who don’t support the idea of dog breeders it is an important distinction. That’s why the catchphrase is “adopt don’t shop”.

ohsomrsr15 :  Anything else? Say you got a puppy, were given a puppy? The puppy wasn’t homeless, it was bred for the intention of being sold for profit.

ohsomrsr15 :  just say you got a dog 🙂  There’s no shame in getting a dog from a breeder… not everyone is cut out to rescue.  But the term “adopt” means to get a rescue.

Anyway, how you doing?  What’s your plan for dealing with your husband?  I’m sorry you’re going through this.  It’s super immature and passive-aggressive of him.

I’m on team rehome the husband. I can’t believe your mother had a heart attack and a day later your husband has the gall to say you’re being “emotional and irrational” during an argument that only happened because of his failure to communicate like an adult in the first place. WTF how is anyone defending this fuckface?

ohsomrsr15 :  I really couldn’t stay with someone who would have me rehome a puppy. Particularly if he agreed to it! And the gaslighting. 

 

He’s tired this week? Imagine with a human baby. 

 

I have to disagree with PP who said puppies are more work than a human because you can’t leave them alone for too long. At least you can leave them alone, most of my friends with babies are just thankful when they get a shower.

krfrank :  Please don’t refer to buying an animal from a breeder as “adoption.” 

Preach it! Breeder/puppy mill dogs =/= adopted. I’m glad someone else pointed this out lol.

ohsomrsr15 :  you can consider her however you like! Personally I was just explaining the distinction because if you’re ever at the dog park and call her “adopted” someone will likely ask “what rescue?” and you’ll get some side-eye (or rude comments) from many people if you then tell them a breeder’s name. If you don’t mind that then it’s fine – it was more a warning in case that would bother you.
