Melanie has agreed to keep all 8 puppies until they are placed.
And I would in no way say Susie is "miserable". Far from it. I have been to Melanie's house. Susie looks quite happy actually and she has started to put on weight.
Of course the situation is not ideal. But I don't think putting Susie to sleep would have been the better solution here.
