I wanted to tell you about a puppy that I donated as a seizure alert dog. I gave the dog to a young family because they said that they wanted to train the puppy to alert them and their small son when he is about to have a siezure. Well, time moved along and they did not get the training that they said they would. Soon they asked to rehome the dog. Why? Because the work that was needed in caring for the dog was too much for the family to handle when they were dealing with the issues of their son. It was too hard for them to try to keep a puppy, train a puppy, train a service dog, and care for their son. Please, don't let this happen. These dogs are sensitive and loving...rehoming them is hard on the dog. Yes, they do adjust, but it is far better to take a realistic look at this matter and decide if you truly can handle all of the responsibilities that you now face and add to that training and caring for a (sometimes too playful) puppy.
