    He is on the adoption forum now. Thank you for the moral support.

    I just discussed this with my husband and he reminded me that when we adopted our cats from the shelter we signed an agreement that in the event we no longer could keep our animal we would return him to the shelter. Did you sign such an agreement with the shelter? I know you hate to see Mac go back to the shelter but they do have better resources to make sure he finds a good home. They can check vet references, home ownership, etc. much easier than we can. Hope this helps.

    It would not be wise to let the dog run lose living in the mountains, if there are other people with livestock close by the dog could try to go after them and get shot ! And not neutering dogs make things a lot worst !
    You end up having more unwanted dogs being put down . Oh god don't use craigslist the poor dog could end being use as bait for dog fighting ring or sold to a lab !

    Yes I am under contract with the shelter. I wanted to take him to another shelter that I feel does a better job at re homing pets. They make adoption posters and have featured pets but they said I have to take mac back to the other shelter cause the contract.

    Ah my goodness. I hope he finds a home quickly.... but I wouldn't use craigslist either. Put his picture up in several vets offices

    Hey,
    Option 1. If you love this dog as much as you say you do, I believe that the dog deserves to go to a home that has the time to like let him out and go on walks.
    I have no doubt that you are a loving owner but sometimes you have to "be cruel to be kind." BONUS: This option lets you keep the house!!Give the dog to a family that can socialise him. You will then know he will have a good future ahead of him.
    Option 2. Move away from the mountains and do the socialising yourself. Make time to excercise your pet. BONUS: This option lets you keep the dog!!
    Hope this helps,
    James

    I think you should truly consider what your saying, and see if you don't answer the question for yourself. I'm sure you have co-workers that you could talk to and make connections to find the dog and appropriate home by yourself without the gamble of placing the dog in a pound. Pitbulls are a fairly popular and feared dog at the same time. The best bet for the dog and for you is to find a new home with someone you may know or someone they know who would be a good home for him. That life is NOT good especially considering his breed is highly energetic and lack of attention is not going to make a good natured dog.

    Look, take your dog to a dog park. All you have to do is sit there, work on some stuff on your laptop or talk with people and let him/her run around. That dog has a deep bond with you. You are the only thing that dog knows and its kinda messed up just to give them away ya know. AND !!!! In my town for example there is a place kind of like where you drop your kids off but its for dogs. They have like 3 rooms for dogs to play in and they have cameras in each room so you can go on your cellphone and see how he/she is doing. Its like 20 bucks for the entire day!

    I shouldn't have read this. I'm so heartbroken for this sweet dog. I hate to hear that the novelty wore off and you've decided to just give him back to the pound. My little pup is family to us all. I wish you'd find a loving home for him, instead of the shelter.
