Due to some major life changes, I'm having to re-home my beloved Beagle Mr. Bojangles. I already made plans for him to go live with my best friend (whom is only 16) and her mother. They live in SC, near where I will be living for about 2.5 months. They have a female GSD and two cats already. LUCKILY Beau LOVES cats and gets along VERY well with dogs.
I don't wanna be bashed for having to re-home my baby, I know dogs are a life-long commitment and I know that he is mine and I shouldn't be doing this to him. I don't have a choice. I love my dog so damn much. It's killing me to do this. I've had him since I was 14 years old and I'm now almost 21. He just turned 7 and I've had him since he was 6 months old. I rescued him actually. He's my heart dog and the love of my life. I couldn't live without him really. He's my child. But I have noi choice, it's what's best for him and me.
See I'm joining the US Army and I can't let him stay at home with my family. We have three dogs inculding Beau, plus a cat and a bird. Beau is MY dog, I pay for everything for him. I pay his vet bills, food, collars, chains, toys, grooming, etc. I trained him myself. I'm currently working on getting his CGC and hoping to get him ceritfied as a therapy dog, as well training him in weight pulling. My friend is going to do these things with him, due to her dog not be able to. She wants a dog that she can take places and work with. I'm getting side-tracked.
My point is I can't keep him at home with my family. Our westie and him HATE each other with a PASSION! We are on a crate and rotate system right now. And most of the time poor Beau gets the short end of the stick. He has to stay outside on his zip-line, even though he grew up as a house dog. And my mom would let him get fat and not take him to get his shots or anything.
I'm hoping I'm not going to get bashed for having to re-home my dog, due to me joining the military. He's going to a great home. But it's killing me knowing I have to this.
Thanks to everyone who read this.....I needed to vent
