REHOMING A DOG
MR PITBULL SAYS: LET ME SHOW YOU HOW TO QUICKLY FIND A GOOD HOME FOR YOUR DOG
I receive several emails everyday from people who due to unfortunate circumstances are having to rehome a dog. Rehoming 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 have adopted a dog or are soon to be rehoming a dog you will want to read this article:
HOW TO RE-TRAIN AN ADOPTED DOG
MR PITBULL SAYS: DO NOT TAKE YOUR DOG TO THE DOG SHELTER
If you are not afraid of a little work and If you employ my formula outlined below, you will have no trouble rehoming a dog. In fact, you will have your pick of a number of good homes eager to adopt your dog.
MR PITBULL SAYS: REHOMING A DOG TAKES A LITTLE BIT OF CREATIVITY
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 flyer. 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 rehoming. However you don't want people calling for the wrong reason, so use good judgment. Just make sure the picture is appealing.
MR PITBULL SAYS: REHOMING A DOG - PUT THIS ON YOUR FLYERS
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.
HERE IS AN EXAMPLE
It is hard to believe that for the past 5 years, ever since I was a puppy, that I have lived the life of a king, with the most loving family. During that time I watched little Tommy grow from elementary school to graduate from high school. He has been a good friend to me. I'll never forget the time he was sick and I laid by his bedside longing to hear his voice and to feel his touch. How delighted I was when finally he was able to throw the ball to me again. I think he liked that as much as I did. It seems like only yesterday. 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.
MR PITBULL SAYS: REHOMING A DOG TO A GOOD HOME WILL REQUIRE YOUR BEST EFFORTS
It is important that the truth be told about the dog needing a new home. If the dog has some issues or health problems, tell them in the story. Some people love a hard-luck story and will be drawn to a dog that needs special care. I can't tell you how many times I have seen on the news a story of an abused dog in need of a home who perhaps may have lost a leg, and the next day the newscast tells that the dog was adopted, and 100's of people called in offering to rehome the dog. Tell the truth. Provide some compelling reason for immediate action as to why the dog needs a new home. Write the story in a way that touches the heart and you will have no trouble rehoming a dog.
When rehoming a dog, post the flyers 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 rehoming a dog, you will have plenty of people willing to adopt a dog.
Make sure that when rehoming a dog that you visit all homes wanting to adopt a dog.
