Rob and I have been dealing with a tough decision. Sydney isn't getting along well, growling and snapping at the other dogs and we're trying to decide what to do about it. Giving up on a dog goes against everything in me, yet I've come to accept that Syd would be happier as an only dog.
After several days of thinking and discussing, we've agreed that Syd will probably have to be rehomed. This isn't easy. There are a lot of dogs looking for homes these days due to a poor economy. Syd would need a home with no other pets and no small children. She'd also need a place with a safe area for her to run as she prefers spending time outside. She probably would not be happy as an apartment dog. She would be happy with a calm person who wants a cuddly lap dog and gives lots of belly rubs.
On Monday we'll meet with Dr B to see if he has any suggestions. Perhaps offering her something for anxiety would help the situation. If not, then we'll proceed with looking for a safe and loving home for the little girl.
Mac gets along with all the other dogs and is much less high strung than her sister. Nothing much seems to phase her except having her sister snap at her.
