Will my dogs be alright if i give them away separately?
i have had my dogs for 6 years, and we recently found out we have to find a new home for them.
This is brekaing my heart..
but i have to..
OK so the question is..
no one wants to take in two dogs at the same time,, and they are big dogs..
along with the new feelings of a new place w ppl they dont know,, will being away from each other make them depressed??
how quickly will they forget the other?
Put up signs, call the ASPCA or a shelter and ask if any families are willing to adopt 2 big loving dogs
im sorry to hear you must give away your dogs
but i do think is a good idea to separate them. as long as they have been together it cant be healthy if you absolutely have to separate them then try to find homes with big years and maybe other dogs too.. good luck!
If one is dependent on others, or does not like to be alone, she or he may get depressed, but maybe they will adapt well to their new family especially if treated with lots of care and attention.
Do your best in finding them a home where they will be together, but if it is very urgent then you will have to settle for what comes.
That'd be very harsh doing that, and they would definitely notice it.
They'll be very depressed, why do you have to give the dogs away separately all of a sudden?
You should of given them away... um... 6 years ago xDD You know, before they got to know you and their sibling and all?
no they will become depressed and not do anything or eat or stuff like that! soon it will die! im sorry that's how life is :(
Well it depends on how long you have had both of them together, like you said you have had both for 6 years. They probley will feel depressed until they get used to their new surrondings. Once you give them away you might want to give the new owners their favorite toy or a picture of the other dog.
Dogs have good memory, and they can hold grudges.
But I've never known a dog to be depressed.
My dog gets angry, and chews up anything that belongs to the person she's angry with ><
I think your dogs will be fine, as long as the go to good, loving families
it is very sad to have to give away dogs. they are like part of your family, but we all know and understand that things sometimes come up and you have to do what you have to do. =/ just try to keep them together.
the best of luck!
the will NEVER forget the other one.
and it will probably make them VERY depressed.
you DEFINITELY need to find someone who will take them both.
they might be depressed and depression can kill a dog because of the lost of interest without the owner being there
There are people who would take both of them. If you care that much, then find some who will.
but if you give them away to good homes, they should be fine after the transition
