@Treejewel19:  You didn’t fail!  The dog makes you sick, literally, and that’s not anyone’s fault….in fact this all just a part of his journey to his Forever Home, and wherever he ends up, he’s going to bring nothing but the good things you gave him along for the next family.

@Treejewel19:  awww ((hugs)) you didn’t fail him! you gave him a good home for awhile and soon he’ll find another home. at least he wasn’t sitting in a cage in a shelter this whole time! you can’t help that you’re allergic to him. there was no way of knowing you’d have those allergies. it’ll be sad to see him go but just know that he’s in good hands and he will find his forever home.

I volunteer at an animal shelter doing adoptions — trust me when I say that giving a dog up because of allergies is one of the most understandable reasons, especially when I see dogs given up for the most ridiculous reasons imaginable. Yours is entirely reasonable. No one should live like that, and you tried your best. You gave this dog a loving home while you could, and they’ll find a new one soon. I understand feeling sad, but please don’t blame yourself!

@Treejewel19:  Allergies are not failure with a pet. You tried all options and it didn’t work. The rescue group will find the pup a loving home and while it’s earlier than you originally thought that just means the pup will find it’s forever home that much sooner.

Don’t beat your self up, you are doing what’s in the best interest for the dog.

You are doing the right thing! Please don’t beat yourself up about this. Treat yourself the way you’d treat a friend who was going through the same thing. *Hugs*

some days when my allergies are really bad, i wish i could give up my cats.  i survive on four different allergy meds, sinus rinses, steroid sprays, steroid puffers, inhalers, air purifiers, frequent cleanings, kenalog/medrol injections…will start allergy shot therapy soon.  i feel like crap all the time because i’m on so many meds.

((Hugs)) I can’t even imagine what you’re going through. You did NOT fail with the furbaby. If anything, you and your Darling Husband have put heroic efforts towards giving the pom a good home and kept him from potentially having to sit in a cramped shelter all of this time. You gave him a loving home all of these months! That can only be good for the little guy.

You tried so hard. I know it’s going to be horrible to have to say good bye, but you guys have done so well to keep him on and try and cope. And he’s been happy with you guys, at least he’s had a good time, and he’ll go somewhere where he can be cuddled.

Dont feel bad-you in no way failed this dog.  You saved him but now it’s time for him to find a loving home.  I can’t imagine how hard it will be but you are giving this dog another chance. It’s a very understandable reason
