Carson had to go back to his foster mom

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

We tried so hard to make things work out with our three dogs. Last night there were two horrible fights between Carson and Zig. Boris was also attacked but not nearly as bad as Carson and Zig. I went into this with high hopes that Ziggy would have a new playmate and instead all I accomplished was three very miserable dogs. We had to take Carson back to his foster mom where he seemed to be very happy. He gets along great with her dogs. She has four personal dogs and three fosters. Just like with humans I guess some dogs just don't like each other. I was so upset and cried so hard I gave myself a migraine and ended up in bed all day. I'm heartbroken.

On a positive note, there is already someone else interested in adopting Carson and I pray that works out for him. He's such a precious little boy and deserves happiness.

Thank you all for your well wishes. Please send positive thoughts and prayers that Carson finds his forever home.

    It happens unfortunately. I tried a German Shorthair in February and she wouldn't give us the time of day. Made the decision to bring her back and I felt like such a failure until I saw how she reacted to being brought back. This is where she wanted to be, so I knew it was the right decision.

    Oh, hon, I'm so sorry to hear that. At least you made the decision early. We spent an entire year trying to get another cat integrated into our family. We tried everything from kitty Prozac to clicker training. Nothing worked. Luckily, THE week we had decided to have him put to sleep, another client of our vet's adopted him!

    Carson will be much happier as will all of you. You'll find the right one.

    You did the right thing on all counts. I'm sure Carson will find his rightful home. You need to think about your dogs and what is best for them. You have such a big heart for animals like I do, I feel your pain! Take care and hope you feel better tomorrow.

    I agree that Carson seems better with his foster family right now. I hope he finds a good home and that you find another dog if you want one that fits in with your two.

    Sorry it didn't work out:-( Probably better that you found out now. It probably would of been even harder if you had him for a while. Sending positive vibes his way and hope that he finds the right home for him.

    My prayers for Carson to find his "forever home" have gone out!
    We're dealing with a similar situation with Boots and our "new" cat, Mandy. They haven't fought but have been "vocalizing" and staring at one another. It's only been two days and I think the not fighting is a good sign, don't you?

    I'm sorry to hear about that Kim. But thankfully he has a good foster home and I'm sending positive thoughts for him to find a forever home.

    Enjoy your night with your two other dogs... at least you are not alone and your heart was in the right place.
