The story behind getting the dog you wanted.
I think that people should be more concerned about the pets they have bought and that is not because they don’t know how to buy, too many buy pets based on what they heard and then they see that the pet was actually bigger then they thought.
Such is the case that might even cause a split in a couple situation, were it a child one did not want. If the dog is adopted, it develops a feeling towards its owner and should not be treated like a commodity and thrown out of the house which happens from time to time on the plateau in Montreal. Then I think the person should have least called the SPCA or another animal conscious group. Today it is common to get information on pets over the internet before going to the dog pound and the person might get a false sense of what the animal will look like when it is grown.
This has happened on the island of Montreal with a couple that bought a Pyrenees dog that soon grew to be much bigger than the information that was given on the internet. The woman in the relationship no longer wanted the dog citing there is no room in their apartment for it. I do not think that the extra foot it grew over what she had expected is reason enough to get rid of the dog especially if they have had it for three years. She complains about the noise it makes when company arrives.
The dog is protective of them and that had to be understood before it was bought. As far as training the dog so that it is less noisy and does not disturb the neighbors there are trainers out there one of which was recently advertised on television for his successful leash and training method. Annoying dogs soon become docile enough to be kept and he has helped many dog owners some having several large dogs. I would even advise the owner to seek counseling so that her hate for the animal can be turned into something positive. No domestic animal would want to be in a home where they were not loved.
