We are new here. We came across this site as we are desperately looking for some support as we are surrendering our dog tomorrow. We rescued Hudson from a no-kill shelter back in 2011. He’s been with us for 7 years. But a mental health issue has developed in one of our family members, as well as an IBD condition in another, and we just can’t keep him. 

This is a horrible feeling. We don’t know how we are going to cope, but we realize is the best for both our sick loved ones and for the dog. The shelter told us they will take him back. We did try to find him a home with local people so at least we’d know where he is going, and maybe be able to see him on occasion. But have not found anyone. I’m certain that the shelter will place him in a good home, but I don’t think they’ll tell us where or if we’ll be able to contac the new family once in a while. 

Please feel free to leave us a message of support here. We are desperately looking for ways to cope. Thank you...

What a difficult and heartbreaking decision you’ve had to make for your family and Hudson.

You could always put a request in with the shelter and see what happens? Most pet owners I would think would be sympathetic to your situation so you could get a good outcome here and maybe have some communication with Husons new family? Or, at the least ask to be notified when Hudson is placed?

You obviously have very good reasons for having to do this, and I really hope it works out for you all.

Sending hugs to you. X

Why a difficult decision -- I feel for you.

Another option is to approach a breed rescue in your area; maybe your dog could be fostered at someone's home while a home is sought. I'm idly looking for a dog and rescue groups are where I am looking.

All the best to you and your pooch!
