Hello my Queen!
This is Icanhasanimlols and I think the mush wunnermous CheezPeeps might have some useful advice for me. I know that some of our peeps work in the animal rescue and health fields. Would it be possible to ask for their advice through the Cryer?
This is my conundrum:
One year ago 2 pups (about 4 months old) showed up at my house but were in very good condition and health. That is usually not the case with these little “dumplins”. We were able to find a foster home for the boy (neutered) who had to leave us because my resident male (neutered) dogs didn’t like him here with us. I still have the girl, Ginger (spayed), who was featured yesterday on our posts (thank you Prysma!). She is a loving, silly, active girl but she would not let us touch her. She would walk beside us nibbling on our fingers or right behind us stepping on the back of our shoes. She is so curious about everything, very intelligent and just wants to be around us all of the time. We have finally gotten her to let us pet her and she loves her belly rubs but won’t roll over for them. She is still a little spooky and I haven’t been able to teach her to walk on a leash but we think she might be ready for her furever home now with the right hoomins.
My conundrum is that she is part pitbull and kinda looks like one. I am terrified of dog fighters and unfortunately there is alot of that happening in the area. How do I know that the people who want Ginger really want her for a furbabeh and not a “bait” dog? I have heard horror stories about pet adoption events being cruised by dog fighters looking for just that. I guess my question is, how do you screen potential adopters? Especially if I put Ginger on Petfinders and get responses from people not in my area?
Anyone with advice is very welcome to share your knowledge with me and your help will be very much appreciated!
