Guess what??!!!

The neighbours that dumped poor Buster (the cute little black dog, that the good people of this forum helped me find a home for)
Well they are getting a Saint Bernard puppy!!:yell::mad: last week they wanted a BMD on friday the wanted a neapolitan mastiff, but now they are getting the saint bernard because, get this " it's the cheapest one they could find on kijiji" :wall:

I lost it, said you dumped Buster, why are you getting another dog!!? they said Buster was to hyper, I said it was becuase he was never walked, so the husband said, "I couldn't walk him, I have a bad back" !!??:eek: I said, if you can't walk a 40lb dog, there is no way you will be able to walk a 120lb one !!??........................STUPID STUPID IGNORANT IDIOTS :yell:

I told the whole family, "your puppy people, when this one grows up, you'll dump it too, like all the rest!!! "

And she's a gardener, and has gardens EVERYWHERE, so the dog will have no place to go.........it will get beaten if it goes in her flowers!!! :wall::wall:

Tell me about it!!!! They couldn't bring the pup home last night, becuase they haven't paid him off yet !! they are making payments!!! Idiots that are selling this pup should be kicked in the A$$ too, who would sell a pup in payments??!!! If they can't afford to "buy" him, they can't afford the freakin vet either.....hell they can't afford the 4 freakin kids they have!!!! They beg all through the neighbourhood for food, cars, trucks, and everything else they can sucker the kind hearted into giving them!!!!

Sorry for the rant.......but this just makes me so angry!!!!!

Sad part is, they are teaching their 4 kids everything they know!!! So the kids think it's okay!!!

One of the kids was telling me all about how cute his new puppy is........I lost it and said "you didn't give a crap when Buddy went, you even wanted money for him, so what the heck makes you think your gonna give a rats a$$ about this dog" You'll get bored in about 6 months, and dump him too, you and your family shouldn't be allowed to own pets" !!:yell:

Is there any way for you to find/contact the seller of the pup, and let them know the circumstances? Can you find the ad on Kijiji? Of course the seller may not care as long as they get paid, but it might be worth a shot, stressing that the pup will not have a long-term home or proper care.

Happycat , please tell these loosers that St-Bernard adults will get between 150 and 200 lbs ! Do they know how much food this will cost them ? How much vet care it costs for extra-large dogs ? And he has a bad back ???? Then tell him he better get good insurances to pay for his future chiropractor !

I did I did !!! I basically pleaded with them last night, told them everything you posted, as well as their yard is small and they have a pool in the middle and gardens all around, with no place for any dog let alone a huge one!!!

My DH said he is going to freak on them when he see's them!!

Within one week, they have picked out 4 different breeds!!! and picked this one because of the price!!! LOSERS!!! How the hell will I survive living next door to them !!! Maybe I should tell their landlord......No he won't give a rats a$$ either since they pay rent, and thats all he cares about!

I would try and contact the kijiji people selling this dog, you never know, they might give a crap (unlikely if they're taking payments and advertising on kijiji, but you never know).

Then they will either get the Golden, BMD or Neapolatin that are all also listed on Kijiji in our area :wall: It doesn't matter, the are hell bent on getting a puppy!!! A HUGE puppy :sad:

They have seen how sweet and well behaved Buddy is, and think they can train a dog to be like him.....!!!!!! I have told him repeatedly, that I have never beaten or raised my voice to Buddy, and Buddy was already sweet and well mannered to begin with!!
He beats his dogs, as well as teaching the kids and wife to beat the dogs as well.............that's the only way to train em he says !!! :loser:

Happycats, TELL THE LANDLORD! tell him its a HUGE dog, that will destroy propery, chew and slobber on everything, basically paint him a very unattractive picture. and who knows, he may care enough to tell them no. Rent or no rent, he must care about his property, no?
:sad: very sad to hear about people like these... Very sad...and just :wall::wall:

I think contacting the landlord is probably your best bet. If you can convince him that this dog will end up destroying property due to lack of exercise/supervision, etc, he might take a stand.

This poor dog. The big dogs are harder to adopt out anyway and if the breeder is accepting payments, then I would guess they wouldn't be taking the dog back when the people figure out that the cute giant breed puppy is going to grow into a giant breed adult. I guarantee that the first time this pup flings slobber onto one of them, they aren't going to think he's so cute.

Other than that, if they get the pup - maybe you should hang out with a video camera. Catch them in the act of beating the dog and turn them in for animal abuse.

They beat their dogs? :yuck:

You should tell them that your not helping this time WHEN they decide to re-home the dog because he slobbers or destroys things. I don't know why people do this :shrug: The folks that gave me Maggie got a kitten 2 months ago and then gave it up last week :wall:

Oh, and I looked at your thread for buster (cute pooch) and I thought they gave him up because of allergies?

LMAO that's exactly what I said "your allergies won't be able to handle a saint bernard"!! they said they are getting the short haired one, so it won't be a problem!!!!
OMG what freakin liars!!
My DH is going to tell them exactly what you posted........"Don't come here in a year when you dump this one!!"

They know I'm a big sucker, and although I hate them for this, they know I will take the dog when they threaten to take him to the pound (our pound PTS in 3 days if the dog isn't adopted):sad: they will use my emotions against me.........I will feel sorry for the dog and feed him and pet him through the fence just like I did with Buster.........GOD I'm such a wussssss :frustrated:

Busters new owner told me the vet told them he was malnourished!! And I fed him.............I thought I was supplementing his meals, I was probably the only one feeding him :cry:

These people are unbelievable... I've met my share of people who shouldn't have pets, but to live next door to someone like that... ugh.

I really wonder WHY they want a dog? I know a few people on my street that really wanted a dog, got one, and never took it for walks or even bothered to neuter/spay or take it to the vet. They say they are dog people - but it seems like their dogs are just there for show. I can't imagine having dogs and then not doing anything with them... Walks, playing, cuddling, training classes... I don't understand people :shrug:

JMO but after serious thinking about why my neighbour does it......well I know it's him (the husband) he is never ever happy, and is always complaining, and belly acheing about how hard he has it, and always says how he should just dissappear or die :yuck: ( I too wish he would)
I believe he is using dogs to fill a void in his life, not knowing or not learning from the past that "IT"S YOU YOU STUPID F%*K that has problems and no dog, kid, wife, kid or money will change anything!! he's nuts and needs mental help not a dog!!! I think I just may tell him that too!!:D

Happycats I can't imagine living next door to an ignorant A-hole like you do, wanting to strip him up and down the middle, but since you know the guy is a pshyco, maybe you should be careful what you say to him, lest he in some way tries to take it out on Buddy.

Visitors to our home are warned that if they fear getting shed upon, or the recipient of some "Saint slime".

Give me a shout when you adopt this Saint, they are a wonderful breed!

Telling the landlord won't help. He has allowed them to have other dogs and not done anything. Also, in Ont you can't evict for having a pet unless the pet is causing problems.
You are a saint for putting up with this! I think the idea of having a camera around for when he is beating this poor pup into submission is a great idea. Maybe then there will be some kind of consequence. :shrug: Poor pup. :sad:

OMG, your not gonna believe this!! I was just talking to the oldest son (he's 18) he said they are making him pay for the dog ( $100 a week :eek:) Because they have no money. They said it's the least he could do for them, since they let him live there!! WTF !!??

I told the son, how expensive dogs are, just the revolution alone is 100 bucks, and Buddys food is 70 bucks a bag, so imagine how much it will cost to feed a saint !! Funny thing is, the son agrees with us, he said his parents are freakin stupid, and never have any money, so he has no idea how they are going to look after the dog. He said his Stepdad is boss (and wan'ts this dog) and him, and the others (siblings and mother) have no say, as he has hit all of them :eek:
but the son said not to worry, he's not going to be hitting anybody, including the dog anymore (the son is now 6 foot 7 and 260 lbs)

At least there is some hope this dog won't be beaten. :shrug:

Some women are so 'gutless', allowing themselves, their kids and pets to be bulied and live in fear. Sounds like a wonderful home environment to live in!
