We had a german shepard puppy through my entire pregnancy. Tim found him running loose in Detroit while on a job. We moved in with friends about a month before I had my daughter and they really didn't have a good backyard for him (there was no fence so we walked him to a chain in the back) and we had to keep him in the basement. We decided it would be best to get rid of him because there was no way I could take care of him AND our baby (he was also SUPER HYPER...we didn't really train him because we don't know how to train a dog!). It was hard for me because he was really the only company I had during the day (everyone else works during the day). Anyhow, we took him to the Humane Society because I assumed they WOULD DO EVERYTHING POSSIBLE TO FIND HIM A GOOD HOME. I wrote to them recently and recived a reply today: they put him to sleep. I'm so sad and feel guilty for taking him there. Any words to help me feel better?

You won't like anything I have to say.
You shouldn't have got the dog in the first place seeing as how you didn't have a stable home. And then to say we didn't really train him because we didn't know how! Poor excuse.....you learn. Read books, you said you were home all day with him. And as for the Humane Society, that's what they do if they can't find someone to adopt them. You would have been better off finding a home on Craigslist (you obviously have a computer) or putting an add in the paper.
I don't feel sorry for you one bit and I'm not going to sugar coat my answer to make you feel better. I just feel sorry for the dog.
