Is it possible to euthanize or give your dog away after having owned it for 3 years?
It's healthy and has the shots it needs (i think).
This. What the fuck OP? Didn't you bond with it at all? If you can't/won't take care of a pet for its full life span including vet bills then you can't afford a pet and never should have gotten one. That's why it's such a huge commitment.
Nobody's saying you should keep it, it's totally fine if you give it up for adoption, but it's a living thing and you can't just have it killed because it farts. Especially not when you're the one choosing its food and feeding it, I mean fuck. The farts are your fault, anyway. What is wrong with you?
You clearly don't want companionship, the fucking BODILY FUNCTIONS of another living thing are too much for you to handle. I don't even want to think of what you'd do in a human relationship with emotional entanglements on top of the farts & snoring
>tfw OP only walks the dog once a week
>the dog is just desperately trying to hold in its poop for days to avoid soiling OP's apartment
>farts smell like poop
>WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS THING? CAN I JUST KILL IT?
Well, thats why im asking because I dont want to schlep all the way to a vet with it, only to be told they cant euthanize it because it's otherwise healthy. So I dont know if they actually do that, I just figured I ask here before calling a vet and making an appointment.
see, OP, the problem is
it doesn't need to be killed, it's healthy and only 3 years old
give it to someone, you can make an announce on OLX or something
if its pure bred people would even pay for it
Yeah man, like, killing innocent animals is totes wrong.
What I am sayin is that it would be sad, but it's not like I'm depriving anyone of great potential. A pug is mainly just a companion, and if it doesn't do that very well the world wouldn't be any worse off if a pug is put to sleep humanely.
A lot of people are deliberately misunderstanding what I'm saying in this thread.
Well, I was just trying to look at my options.
I dont want to put it on craigslist because I dont want strangers coming to my home. But if I can take it to a shelter for free, I guess that's cheaper than taking it to a vet.
Bringing it to a vet to kill it would cost $250 min. I know because I had to put my sick cat to sleep because she was suffering a lot. A no kill shelter might charge you a very small fee to take it in. And if you google around you might find a pug rescue group that will take it for free in your area.
Did you actually do research on the dog breed you wanted before getting a dog? Or did you just get one for aesthetic purposes or because you saw a YouTube video of it being cute?
You sound like a very irresponsible owner, you should give the dog to a shelter or give it away to someone who knows about dogs, and someone who has more commitment than you.
euthanizing a pug would actually be a wise decision, its unable to breathe properly and is constantly suffering.
also don't tell me you adopted it because of stupid vines and pug memes on the internet
Well, we didn't go off into latin words when talking about it. It was a friend of my sister's and we met up in a bar. I saw some pics on her phone, and she didn't mention anything about them shedding so much fur and having stomach problems.
I'm triggered you lazy ass fuck. Jesus, you're the most retarded person I've witnessed on 4chan.
Farts are an easy fix. Change the diet to something more healthy, I've noticed that dry kibble if it's not a good brand and doesn't agree with your dog it gives them horrible gas.
I have two small dogs myself, a shiba and a dachshund. I feed them Acana, same formula except the shiba gets puppy one and her farts smell like she just shat on your face.
And I deal with it.
Seems I should just get rid of this one because it was the wrong breed. Mistakes happen.
Do anyone know of a dog breed that:
*doesn't eat too much or are prone to health problems so I dont have to bring them to the vet all the time
*doesnt shed fur so I have clean up after it
*is generally lazy and doesn't require a lot physical excercise and walks?
Tips are welcome
I hope a hoe breaks your heart like you broke that dog's one
Try to give it into adoption to an actually RESPONSIBLE person or call a shelter.
And dont even fucking think about having another pet, you dont deserve it
Because that living thing trusts you and probably loves you now that you've had it for 3 years. And you contemplated killing it because it has smelly farts and snores.
It's also very cute. If farting was that much of a problem you should've changed its diet. What do you feed it? Pedigree? If its snoring bothers you so much why don't you make it sleep in another room, in a kennel?
You should've gotten a different pet. Like a gold fish.
I tried having a goldfish for a while, but its so boring since you cant pet it. Also it was a pain in the ass cleaning the glass bowl, so I ended up just flushing it down the toilet.
you can give it away. go to craigslist and post an ad, you'll be surprised how many people just want a free doggy. just PLEASE do go to their home and make sure they are real. some peopel give away their dogs not realizing they are being used as bait for dog fight trianing
I've decided I'm going to try to sell it first. If not I know my cousin got a kid who might want to have a dog. If she havent changed her mind like kids do. So if the kid doesnt want it, I will just take it to a shelter or something.
But to the trolls in this thread, don't worry, I'm not going to euthanize it. I was just asking to assess my possibilities.
OP here. I actually dont think a lot of you have been helpful, so I wont say thank you.
However, just as an update I think I've come to a solution. I talked with a guy who runs a kennel and he's interested in it for breeding. In excange he will give me a bassett puppy in return from his next litter. He says they are less prone to snooring and stomach problems.
I'm still really hoping this is bait.
However, you should know that bassets are extremely prone to ear infections (which stink) and will need to be treated by a vet. Are you ready to deal with that?
It's basic psychopathy for people to react this strongly to forms of animal abuse. Sensible human beings will be capable of seeing where you're coming from. To answer your question, giving it away is a lot easier and saves money; if it's purebred you can sell him.
And next time you engage these scum, tell them if their lives aren't bettered by animals dying all the time. Sure, they'll claim that those animals are made for that purpose, meaning that as long as suffering was a decision made for the creature prior to its conception then it's suddenly A-OK! quo all the terrible shit that happens in farms and labs so we can get meat, make-up, medicine, clothes etc. which they must undoubtly benefit in one way or another. They, and not you, are the ones who are truly scum, and hypocrites to top it off.
It would still be likely to snore. It would still shed TONS. With any dog its a gamble whether it will have gas problems, especially since you're not willing to try to figure out the cause of them.
hey thats mine
ITT: OP is a sociopath and nobody realizes that no amount of name calling is ever going to change him.
What OP should realize is that he should find the dog an actual fucking home, not a dog pound/shelter.
And never get a pet again because they're not toys whatsoever.
>considers euthanizing his fucking dog
You're literally a sociopath and I hope the dog rips your nuts off in your sleep or something so that you never get the chance to pass on those sociopath i-kill-my-dog genes to your autistic offspring
On a sidenote, is it possible to declaw a puppy? I really don't like them scratching up the floors. I think a friend of mine told me it works well with cats, so I figured it's something that would work well with a dog too.
