Havs on Craigslist

http://miami.craigslist.org/pbc/pet/1658364748.html

just saw this now, emailed the person...hopefully they still have the dog and I can refer them to HRI, or if it's a suitable friend for Roscoe I can convince Tim to let me have it....the post doesn't even say if the pup is male or female. How awful

Oh Nicole! I'm crushed

I called the lady, the dog's name is Lily and she is 3.5 years old. She rehomed her yesterday to a woman with a young son who actually wants a big dog. They have no dog experience. Lily is not spayed and it sounds to me like the reason they did not keep her is because she has too much energy - sounds like lack of training and attention to me. YIKES!

Anyway, I told the lady to call the family that adopted her and give them my contact information. I would be just devastated if she ended up in a shelter. She has papers, but came from a pet store, so mill or the like. She was sold as a "teacup" and only weighs 7 lbs.

I really hope I get a callback saying that the new family decided no and that I can be her new mommy......cross your fingers for me!!

The lady is in Boca Raton. I know of a few rescue homes in that area if needed. It's so true that dogs don't need the training....the owners do.

I am hoping that she makes her way to you Natalie. I hope the new owners realize what effort it takes to groom her, and if the first lady never spent time with her, I'm sure she has potty issues also.

Well, I spoke to the former owner on the phone for quite awhile last night. Sounds to me like at first they had a lot of time to spend with the dog, but as her kids have gotten older they are not home as much (sports, school, and the like), so she did tell me that Lily has some issues with her listening skills, but that she is actually good in the potty department. So that's a relief.

Still no word yet, but I will probably call her tomorrow morning. *sigh* I wish she would have just not given poor Lily away to the first person who called her

I know some situations may come up in life-but I will never understand WHY people can't take a minute and honestly THINK before getting a dog. Like they couldn't have forseen that? Sorry to be on a soapbox, but that burns me up.
I still hope you get her because you get "it".

^ I couldn't agree more. I know that I have school, work, and responsibilities, but BEFORE I made the commitment to be Roscoe's mommy, I worked out a schedule that makes it possible for me or Tim to be home almost all the time. The longest Roscoe is ever alone on a weekday is 4 hours. I took nearly 10 days off school when we first got him because I didn't want him to be left alone right off the bat. And it's so worth it, he's so well adjusted and good and being alone and even better when people are around.

Unfortunately, people think a dog is a dog. Some dogs are cool with being left for 8+ hours alone - but not Havanese! I wish people would do their research, but alas, we can only control what WE do as individuals, and hope to influence those around us with our positive behavior. That is why I asked Lily's old mom to pass my contact information to her new mom - even if I can't take care of Lily, I can at least do my best to reach out and help the person who is trying to. And if she feels that she cannot keep Lily, then she knows someone who would take care of her in a heartbeat!

I hope things will work out for Lilly and she will be takin care of. If there is a chance that it doesnt work out then hopefully they will contact the previous owner. I am sure the right pup will come along to you. You have a BIG heart.
