My ex and I split a year ago, she kept the girl and I kept the boy, she it not in the best of healths and has to have some operations in the coming weeks hence she cannot look after her and in the long terms she sees problems, so we talked about what we can do to keep her near Guss as they meet and canoodle.
It may be worth contacting a breed rescue, as they have experience of finding good homes for breeds. Try Bernese Welfare (01787 371940 [email protected]) - they'll be able to find a good home for her and make sure that the new owners can give her the love and training she needs.
without sounding rude was that last comment really necessary andrew. I am sure babybat did read the message or why else would he post. If i had been you i would have taken his post to be a really helpful alternative if your ideal solution of someone local doesn't work out.
Given if what i have read about bernese dog after a quick google, is true their relative short life span, health issues and the size of dog I would think it is quite possible you will have difficulty finding someone local (although i do wish you luck they look lovely dogs) to offer her a home. so why not just take baby bats post in the helpful tone it was no doubt written?
If she is well enough you could take them both to Greenwich Park early one morning. Pass the word amongst the loads of dog people up there & you might find something. I know it's not on your doorstep, but hopefully close enough for a visit & people may have a little more space for a large dog up there ! Good luck
Hi Andrew - yes, I read your original post. The reason I suggested a breed rescue is even on a nice, welcoming forum like this, you can't really know the people you're rehoming your dog to. You don't want your dog going to someone who may just use her as a puppy machine, or doesn't have experience of the breed's specific needs and health issues. I work for a shelter and I know first hand how hard they work to ensure the dog is going to the right home - whether that's local or not. Personally, I wouldn't be happy rehoming my dog to someone I only knew on the internet or a random dog walker from a park.
