My mother is driving me nuts. We have a dog (he was dumped on us by my sister almost 2 months ago) that has tried to kill my cat several times now and he keeps injuring my child so we have decided to rehome him and we are being 100% open and telling these people what they would be dedicating to with this dog. Out of five original candidates for him we are down to one truly dedicated guy that says he will make it work and we are going to do a meet and greet with him tomorrow so he can meet this dog and we will see if they click or not. And now, of course, my mother is complaining saying we can't do that yet years ago when my brother got a dog she actually started losing her mind slowly and one day she decided to attack my mothers cat. My mother called the pound and had her picked up and put down that day but if a dog is attacking my cat and hurting my child it is apparently ok.
Like I feel bad that we are having to rehome him but I cannot keep him and IMO finding someone to take him is a lot better than putting him in the pound where it is likely he will be killed.
I am just like, this is hard enough for me without my mother doing this to me. I do love this dog BUT I cannot keep him because my child and my cat are in danger while I have this dog in my house so this is what I have to do.
ETA title is because that is what my brother suggested we do with him but that is because he doesn't give two shits about animals.. He learned that from my father though.
