    I'm sure most of you remember my thread about my stepmum. Surprise surprise she has yet another staffie. A beautiful 4 year old female.

    She's had the little lass a week and wants rid of her already, Molly was my friends, before my stepmum had her, my friend won't take her back, and i'm being treated like she's my responsibility she's asked me to 'come and take her'...where i have no idea she hasn't been spayed so i can't fetch her to my house for a few days till somewhere permanent is sorted.

    I've tried friends but none are able to have her at the moment :( i have no idea what to do, my friend phoned a local rescue but they have a waiting list. :( i'm so mad at my stepmum!

    Oh Sarah :(

    Why'd she get her in the first place?

    I don't know what to suggest really, so many satffies in rescues. Shame I'm not as close to you anymore because I'd have offered to help out

    i wish i knew. i got George of her because they were 'fed up' of him.

    she texted me two nights back saying she didn't want her anymore because she had pulled her blinds down :/ but then texted an hour later saying she wants to keep her -_-

    Maybe it'd actually be a good idea not to help her in this situation.

    If you keep finding homes/solutions for the dogs she gets bored of, she will just keep doing it and expecting you to sort it for her when she can't be bothered.

    Maybe she needs to see that you can't just get rid of a dog when you're bored/mad with it and maybe then she will stick with the dog, otherwise she will get rid and then it will all happen again with a different dog a few weeks down the line. My neighbours are just the same and it drives me mad :(

    i know that that seems like probably the best option, but if she rehomed her herself the poor missy would end up anywhere to anyone, and cause she's not been spayed and has previously just to breed my main worry would be whoever took her would use her to have puppies. My stepmum would let her o to first person who could pick her up.

    i'm phoning round friends tomorrow then im of to see my stepmum

    This is ridiculous, im sorry but it sounds like your step mum is 5 years old!

    Im afraid to say not many rescues will take her in. Where did she originally come from? If she was originally a rescue dog then you should take her back there.

    I would offer to take her in but this week we are totally full up, and with the amount of staffies needing homes (all in pounds at risk of being PTS today), im afraid yours would be at the bottom of the list as she is not at risk of being PTS.

    I do hope something is sorted and tbh i would report your stepmum for neglect as it is the 2nd one. I wish people could get banned for using so many dogs.

    she wasn't previously a rescue she was a friends of the families, who has point blank refused to take her back :/ hopefully a friend will have her he's met her and loves her he just needs to check with his house share friend that it'd be ok
     
  12. Are they allowed dogs in the mental hospital?

    Sorry no disrespect to you personally but she sound like she has mental health issues!

    The poor girl, I hope this will be a permant home. If they are renting make sure you see a consent form from the landlord, otherwise you may find yourself in the same situ a couple of weeks down the line.

    and i certainly will do :) we have the same landlord so once he's checked with his friend i can call him and ask him myself :) which i don't think would be a problem i have 4 and my landlords fine about them, they already have a female dobermann to :)

    Also, I would get your mum to sign her over to you (actually get her to write a letter) and then you write a letter signing her over to the new people. As you never know what could happen next. She could say they stole the dog etc. So to be sure get her to sign Molly over.

    Poor Molly, I hope she finds a responsible home asap, atleast she has you looking out for her interests.

    Your step mom needs to get a grip, she can`t just get dogs on a whim and get rid of them for daft reasons :eek::blink:
    But unfortunatley, I don`t think it is actually a crime to do what she is doing, so I doubt you could even report her and make sure it doesn`t continue to happen

    Aww that's brill! Will you be able to keep tabs on how she's doing?

    Hopefully she might learn from this one but sadly people like this will just keep getting dogs and getting rid, my neighbours are just exactly the same and it's one of the things that winds me up the most :(
