No you did the right thing rehoming. But proper breed research before hand would have avoided the whole situation. It's just sad for the dog.

And other posts on that subject and threads you started have alluded that you weren't ready for a puppy yet and would wait... Yet you jumped straight back in. Just a surprise to some of us I'm sure.

Good luck with it, I hope it works out this time especially for the pup.

You rehomed a puppy a couple weeks ago and you have another pup already and you don’t see why that might raise some eyebrows....


Keep your eyebrows down. I rehomed a dog that was a large outdoor active breed to get a small indoor dog (that I will of course walk) it's like comparing a race horse with a pony. I know poodles.

Yes , I know full well the mistake,  I was extremely upset as I had based my decision on grown up golden retrievers. So I made  a mistake but I didn't hurt him, I actually took really good care of him. Took him to the vet, puppy school, feed him a good diet, short walks, he had toys ect. The only bad thing about the situation was that DS who is 3 didn't want anything to do with him so he was lonely. I acted quickly to rehome him so he wasn't too unhappy.

Once again it's the OP's thread...

I don't know where your friend lives OP, but there is a little poodle rescued from a puppy farm available on Pet Rescue at the moment to a home in Victoria. Your friend might be interested in him.

I noticed that the other morning, no idea why I hadn’t realised before. Not sure that naughty Waffle is the best advertisement though...

I met a couple of mini poodles today at the park. One of them was climbing the ladder and going down the slide with his kids. It was so cute.

Yes! Second vote for a Bichon. From our sample size of one, very friendly and laid back but still loves a good walk. Not a yapper. Ok to be alone for the day if needed.
