The PBT dumping begins

Hi All,
Our rescue received a call today from the 905 area code. It was a guy looking to find a home for his PBT. The problem was that he only wished to get rid of it if we guaranteed that we would not neuter him. This goes against the purpose of rescue. When he was asked why he would not keep his PBT as they were grandfathered and he could do so, his response was he would not allow his PBT to have his f*ing balls chopped off. What would you do in a case like this?

We're afraid that this will just be the beginning of many a phonecall to Quebec area rescues asking for help. We have no problem helping a PBT, we just cannot condone not spaying/neutering. Such a catch 22. I absolutely adore the breed and so do my extremely young daughters.

Any thoughts?

I would verbally agree and then neuter him once he is legally yours. There are people that believe like that but at least you could save his life IMHO

It is a tough call to make on one hand you don't want to go against your mandate by not neutering nor do you want to refuse the dog when its owner is asking for help and I guess you don't want to discredit the organization by lying . These are senarios that no one has dealt with before and I really do not know what to say other than to try to pursuade the owner to reconsider.

Angry THis is one of the biggest problems i have with some owners.

We already know that statistically young male intact dogs of all breeds have the largest number of bites on humans & dog fights. I imagine there are probably a good number of bites from females with puppies near too.

From some of the PB owners I know personally this is one of those emotion over logic things. (IMHO, PB owners are often the last holdouts over N/S. The 'Last Rebels'? Mixing up their dog's sexual idetity with their own? I dunno. I do know though, that it cheeses me off to no end! Esp. when you look at the H.S. & rescues up to HERE in PBs,/Staffys/& Xbreds.)
Even when the dog becomes a problem, Unkeepable for them, they demand that it not be neutered in it's next home. NUTZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IMHO, agree to take the dog. Then the dog becomes your property. Neuter the dog.-The dog is yours now. He gave it up, too bad sooo sad, it's Not his dog anymore.
