I posted a little while ago on here about taking my German shepherd puppy on the road. I've now come to realize that I probably can't. Hit me in the face like a thunder clap . I'm a strong believer in once you adopt a pet, its your job to see its life through, which makes this all the more depressing and guilt ridden of a decision. I've had him since he was 2 months old, he's now 5 months, and is a great dog without question, obedient, extremely loyal, a natural guard dog, and would be a fantastic travel companion. He's compatible with me, but I may not be with him. I love him dearly, more than most people honestly. but I might have to let him go. As in re home him. He's great, as I said, but alto of work. I cant't go in stores with him, etc, I have to watch him like a child, carry food and water, a food and water bowl, and deal with people trying to fuck with him on a daily basis when all I need to do is run in the store for 5 to 10 minutes. Having to be careful with my money so that he has food. I also can't get on a freight train with him. THAT BLOWS. I usually end up frustrated and angry, and super worn down at the end of the day having him with me at all times. I'm also concerned about his joints since he's around the time frame when genetic joint problems start showing, and often when he's sitting his front legs will have tremors. THATS A NO for a road dog. At the end of the day I kinda feel like someone could be better at taking care of him. My thing is that if im reconsidering taking him all over the country with me, I shouldn't have him at all. I love him greatly, but re homing him might be best. Thinking like this makes me feel guilty, and it makes me feel even worse when I get up to do something and he jumps up happily trotting after me. While im typing he even came over and went to sleep by my feet. Still not solid on re homing him, just needed to vent this somewhere. Any opinions or thoughts on the matter are welcome.
