Reaching out for help...

Hey everyone. It's Macks mom here. I am so torn about this post and quite sad actually...

I think I need to find Mack a new home.

Mack is our 'Marley' (from the movie) He can be so bad at times, but oh so lovable. He just has a lot of energy and is used to be being the baby of the house.

However, we just had a new baby - a real one - a two legger.

and Mack is having a hard time adjusting - a really hard time...

and I honestly feel like I'm at the end of my rope. Please don't judge me.

With that said, I REFUSE to take him to a shelter of any kind. I have been asking my friends to see if they knew of anyone who was looking for or willing to adopt him because that is the only scenario that I would let him go in...

I wanted to reach out to my blog friends to see if they knew someone or could help. I need to find my boy a good home. A dog lover's home.

If you have any guidence I would really appreciate your help. My email address is

  2. Sending you hugs for support - I wish I was closer, I would like to help you out with at least a foster home.

  3. We hope you can find the best solution for all. Wish we could help more. Maybe if you could elaborate more about the problem, someone might be able to give you some really good advice to try. We are sure others have had a similar situation. Good luck to you and congrats on the new baby.

  4. All I can offer is moral support. I agree with the OP pack, though, if you are more specific about the nature of the problem then people will know what they are taking on and, who knows, you might find somebody who has had similar issues.

  5. P.S. You need to do what is best for everybody. Mack is loved but sometimes situations just don't work out and he might be happier with a different family. It must be heartbreaking for you.

  6. Do whatever you want and always think for the best decisions for everyone sake :D

  7. We saw this on Facebook and really feel for you! We know how hard these decisions are and really everyone, canine and human, are in a period of transition. Maybe some expert advice would help.
    Take care xx

  8. I always find it sad when a four legged member of the family has to be rehomed because a new two legged member of the family comes along.

    That said, I DO understand that the safety and health of the two legged member of the family MUST ALWAYS come first. So, yes...there are times when rehoming is the best thing to do, not only for the 2 legged family member but also for the four legged family member.

    My question would be, have you done everything possible to try to make the situation work? Have you brought in a certified behaviorist or dog trainer to do an evaluation and work with you on Mack's problems?

    If the answer is yes, and you've truly done your due diligence in helping Mack adjust, then I would recommend contacting your local lab rescue and working with them to find him a suitable family.

    my heart goes out to you as I know this can't be an easy decision. Good Luck

  9. Congratulations on the new baby.

    We're sorry things are not going so well with Mack, though. We applaud your desire to do what is best for all and not just dump him at a kill shelter.

    Purrs and pawhugs. Hope you find the right solution soon.

  10. Hope things have worked out and you are at peace,
