I like to torture myself by going on craigslist from time to time and looking at the pets available. Today I went on and found this ad. I looked at the picture and thought, "he looks just like Darwin's dad. I wonder if it's her brother." So I emailed the person who placed the ad and it turns out, yes, it is Darwin's brother.
Now I don't know this person, and I don't think I've actually met this brother, but I feel the need to try and help find him a good home because he is Darwin's brother. If we had the space I'd take him in an instant, but we don't. So the best thing I can do is pass this ad along and hope there's maybe some Pacific Northwest blog friend or reader who is interested in giving this guy a home.
I've emailed the owner to try and find out more information about him, like his name, and to get more pictures. But in the meantime, spread the word please to any dane lovers you may know so we can help him find a forever home.
***It bothers me a bit that I found this ad because over the last couple weeks I've been trying to contact the people who bought Darwin's brothers and sisters to plan a reunion and to just see how the other pups are doing. I had a name and number that I tried to call/text a few times and never got a response from them, and now I see this ad. The number in the ad isn't the same as the one I called, so maybe they changed their number, but it's so disheartening to see that after not even a year they are trying to find him a new home. Who knows, maybe they have a really good reason so I am trying not to get too upset about it, but... it's her brother!
***UPDATE*** OI. so the reason they are "rehoming" him (Kona) is because they "completely underestimated his size" and they think their house is too small for him. OI. There's no way their house can be smaller than the condo we are in and we make it work. We are trying to save up for a bigger place, but for now we live where we live, and Darwin will live here too. We are not about to give her up just because we live in a small place and she's a big dog. OI. This is why you research and put a lot of thought and consideration towards the animal you choose to adopt/buy/rehome before you take them home! We knew we were in a small place and knew she would grow to be basically the size of a human (we actually wish she'd grow just a little bigger!) and sat down and discussed that (and other things) before we decided to keep her. You just don't go out and see a cute puppy and bring them home because they are small and cute and cuddly. OI. grrrrrrr. ok. enough. off to email everyone and anyone I can to try and find this cute guy a home who doesn't "underestimate" a great dane's size.
