HOW TO QUICKLY FIND A GOOD HOME FOR YOUR DOG
Finding a good home for a good dog can present quite a challenge. In this article I tell you everything you need to know if you are re-homing a dog.
I receive several emails everyday from people who due to unfortunate circumstances are having to re-home a dog. Re-homing a dog that you have loved as a member of the family should only be done as a last resort. Sadly, many people today are at the end of the rope, and need help finding a good home for a dog. I am going to assume you have exhausted all possibilities of keeping your dog and am not going to spend time in this article trying to convince you to keep your dog.
If you are not afraid of a little work and If you employ my formula outlined below, you will have no trouble re-homing a dog. In fact, you will have your pick of a number of good homes eager to adopt your dog.
YOU'LL NEED A GOOD PICTURE
First you need a GOOD PICTURE. Use a good camera. Borrow one if you have to. Take A LOT OF PICTURES and pick the best one. With a digital camera, it cost the same to take a thousand pictures as it does one. I will often take a hundred pictures and find only one that goes on Mr Pitbull. Remember the picture is the first thing that draws attention to your flier Use discernment, if posting a picture with people with the dog. Such pictures can show the LOVING NATURE of the dog and draw attention to a dog in need of re-homing However you don't want people calling for the wrong reason, so use good judgment. Just make sure the picture is appealing.
This is what I recommend: Tell the story of your dog in the first person. In other words, tell the story as if your dog is writing it. Put a caption at the top that says I AM GOING TO MISS MY FAMILY. Now write a story that is compelling.
But now Tommy has left for college. And because Tommy's Dad has lost his job, my family is having to move into an apartment. Sadly the apartment manager said "No Pitbulls Allowed". I did my best to persuade the manager, laying my head in her lap (I can be a charmer). She told my family that she could see I was a real nice dog, "but rules are the rules". I know my family is worried sick about me. I told them I will be OK, I'll find another little boy that I can love, and that my best years are still ahead of me. But secretly I'm worried. I've gotten used to living indoors and obeying their rules. They've promised me that they will make sure I go to a loving home. So if you would like a new best friend please give me a call. By the way, my name is Fido. I look forward to meeting you.
REHOMING A DOG TO A GOOD HOME WILL REQUIRE YOUR BEST EFFORTS
You will notice in the above text that I supplied all the relevant details needed to re-home a dog. I told the dog's age, the circumstance as to why the dog needs a new home, the kind of dog he is, and that he is a house dog, well trained. The story also indicated that the family would be looking for a good home for a dog and that a home check would be done.
MAKE SURE YOU DO A HOME VISIT - MAKE SURE NEW OWNERS ARE QUALIFIED
When re-homing a dog, post the fliers in neighborhoods you would like to find a home for a dog. If the dog is a Pitbull, you don't want the dog going to a home in a neighborhood where he is likely to be abused or stolen. If you put some effort into re-homing a dog, you will have plenty of people willing to adopt a dog.
Make sure that when re-homing a dog that you visit all homes wanting to adopt a dog.
