No idea - but even if someone could foster one for a while they'd be better off with someone knowledgeable than someone posting "free to a good home"!

My cousin sent me this because she didn't know any better asking if I could help (I won't help people off of craigslist, I only go through shelters or rescues). However I read the post and it makes me want to scream. Personally, I wouldn't mind if they got hate mail.

Hello,

So we have been raising our two huskies for the past four years (They both are around 4.) Since we are having a baby and are not able to give them enough attention and enough time, we unfortunately are looking for a loving family with a big yard and enough time to walk them.
They are wonderful with kids and wonderful with people. Just meet them and you'll see =).

Please email us at the following email addresses:


We are looking for a family with a big yard, and positive previous vet records. Ideally we are looking for owners who have had experience with huskies, but that is not required.

Serious inquires only. We will send you photos, more information, and visitation times upon request.

Just offering an alternate point of view, we don't seem to get upset when someone has to re-home their pet for other reasons like moving or it doesn't get along with other pets, etc. Why then are we so upset when people rehome because of a new baby? I guess I am just seeing this with new eyes since I was pregnant and have a newborn at home. I had a tough pregnancy and was even on doctor ordered bed rest for a whole month. Even after our baby was born she was a colicky baby and even now is a little firecracker demanding constant attention when she is not sleeping (and she's a light sleeper at that).

Anyway, my point is that both during my pregnancy and after my daughter was born my dogs are the ones that are suffering because frankly, the baby will always come first NOT the animals. My dogs have not been regularly walked, trained, or played with for the past 6 months. They are lacking stimulation, exercise, and interaction. They mope around the house all sad and desperate for attention that I don't have the time or energy to give. The only things my dogs get are the bare minimum these days, they get taken out 4 times a day in our large backyard and they get fed 3 times a day, that's it. It's horrible but at least several times a week I walk into the kitchen and notice their water bowl is empty and I honestly have no idea how long it's been empty (I check their water bowl at least twice a day usually more, so I know it's never more than several hours max). Add all that negligence up and is that really fair to my dogs? Is that a better life than being rehomed with someone who does have the time to walk them and play with them and give them all the training and daily interaction they need? I would never rehome my pets because I am selfish and love them too much, plus I know that this phase will not last forever and at some point I will have more time for them. And if I had a young rambunctious husky, I know that our current situation would NOT work. I am only able to get away with not exercising my dogs because they are a bit older and settled down.

I do get what the humorous FB post is saying but you can't put a child and a pet on the same level, people will always come first. To me, putting animals and people on the same level is very sad. I love my pets, I really do but they'll never come before my husband, my daughter, my mother, father, sister, etc. I am one of those people that believe pets are a lifelong commitment and would never give mine up because of my child, however is that always the best thing for each animal in a given situation? My answer would be no, so I would hesitate to judge those rehoming over a new baby in the future. Please forgive my rant, I used to feel the same way about people rehoming pets over a baby and now that I see other side of things I am much more sympathetic and open to the idea in certain cases. Do some people rehome when they don't really need to? Of course, but we are not in a position to know the details of everyone's situation so that makes it unfair for us to pass judgement. Just had to get that off my chest.

Well put Val! I completely agree with everything you said 100%!

I find myself relating to what you said. It's very hard keeping up with everything with such a busy life, but we make it work some how Smile I personally don't have any children of my own yet, but have been raising my little sister as my own since she was a newborn. It can be very stressful juggling children, pets, and a personal life, but everything works out the way it should in the end.

Maybe my opinion will change when I have kids, and I definitely agree with you Val after seeing the changes in friends and family member's lives with newborns and children.

However, to me... it is one thing to rehome a pet because things are not working out. But... to rehome a pet simply because you're having a child, without even trying, REALLY makes me upset.

And while I do my best not to judge, it upsets me to no end to see animals suffer because a person's unwillingness to put in effort. If after trying, it's simply not working, make the best decision for your pet. But in my world... my animals are worth the effort.

I think I've only shared this fear with you, Val, but Koda scares me with kids. We are working a LOT right now trying to socialize him with my best friend's son and my nephew, but he is NOT child-friendly... and I'm petrified of having to make that choice someday... but just because of that, that doesn't mean that I wouldn't TRY and make EVERY attempt I could at training and socializing and working with my dog to the best of my ability before I had to choose a child over him. I don't know if I ever could, but that very real fear is there.

Tori, I'm not sure how old Koda is or what exposure he has had with kids, but I've had that very same fear. When my male Dalmatian was younger he had horrible issues with children! I couldn't even take him out in public, because he lunged and had even bit a close friends child once. I was absolutely terrified that he was going to hurt the wrong person one day and either get taken away from me or worse. I'm not sure what happened or what "clicked" in his mind, but I don't really have problems with him anymore. I'm not sure if he just grew out of it, but all his aggression he had when he was younger has just seem to go away. I still watch him very closely and don't trust him 100%, but compared to what he was, he's a completely different dog! What I'm getting at is that maybe with time Koda will grow to accept children.

He loves you and when you decide to have children he will know something is different with you're body while you're pregnant. I've heard so many women tell me their dog's changed so much while they were pregnant. I'm sure he will accept you're child, because he will know it's part of you. If he still has issues, there are lot's of special trainers that deal with that sort of thing. Many of my clients have taken their dog's to trainers after they give birth to insure their dog will be accepting of the new baby. In only one case my client had to rehome her two Doberman's, because they did not accept the child and to this day (8 years later) she still regrets giving up on them. I'm sure if she put in a little extra work, it would have been fine, but she didn't try hard enough. You seem like the type of person who doesn't give up, so I'm sure this will be no problem for you at all. Smile

Thank you Sad

And for what it's worth, you're not the first person to tell me that they think Koda will instinctively know that my child is part of his pack. In the last few years, Koda has changed a lot. He is more "cuddly" if you will and he is without a doubt MY dog. He has imprinted on me in the same way Hailey has with John. Koda waits for me to come to bed at night and paces if I'm not there. He has bonded very strongly with me. I REALLY hope that makes a difference when we start to have kids. Koda is 5 years old right now. By the time we have kids, he'll be approaching his senior years, so I hope that helps as well. But he does all those same things... he lunges and nips at kids and I have to watch him like a HAWK. If the child makes any sudden moves, Koda is there and that frightens me.

I don't know what I would do if I had to choose between my child and my heart dog... but you bet your ass I'd call in a professional trainer before I ever resorted to that decision.

Trust me I've been there! Dom (my dalmatian) has been connected to my hip for the past 9 years! He's been through thing's with me that my sister, mother, and my closest friends don't even know about! He was there for me when no one else was and it was break my heart if I ever had to make a decision like that. He didn't start calming down until he was about 7, so hopefully Koda will have the same success. I'm sure with the amount of work you're putting into him then there will be no issues.

I completely agree with you. It's just, how do we know what the circumstances are? How do we know said person doesn't have a high risk pregnancy and doctor ordered extended bed rest or some other health restriction brought on by pregnancy? Just saying...

I understand and I honestly don't think you'll have a problem raising a child with Koda as you can work with him through it. Glory has always been terrified of children to the point that she gets aggressive and bites out of fear. I was most worried about her when I had Isabella. Believe it or not she's been great with the baby, even when Isa is screaming and flailing her arms and legs. It's like she sees Isa as an extension of me and therefore she likes the baby. You'd really have to witness the change in her to fully appreciate it. I think you'd probably have a similar scenario with Koda. And worst case scenario, you continue to work with Koda if he doesn't change on his own.
