No one gets a dog thinking of the day that they might have to give it up. But, as my dear father used to say, "life happens, things change", and there sometimes comes the point at which we have to make the difficult decision to surrender our dog. It is a tough decision, made harder when we don't know what kind of a life we are surrendering our dog to. Allow me to help.
I work with many surrendered dogs, and they, like their owners, each have a unique story. My goal is simple: I want to make the transition as smooth and painless as possible, and always in the best interest of the dog.
Dogs are taken in on a case-by-case basis, and all fostering arrangements require a full and detailed meeting about the dog's history and behaviours. I personally re-train surrendered dogs with behavioural issues, and I carefully screen every potential adopter. So if you find yourself in the difficult position of considering surrendering your dog, please make Deena Speaks Dog your first call.
