How to get rid of a dog you no longer want?
That “Dogs are Man’s Best Friends” may be a cliché but it is actually true. The love and care we give to these animals can never be measured. Dogs are considered to be members of the family. In fact there are many instances when the love for the pet exceeds all else. In the same manner, a very loyal and protective dog would not hesitate to lay its life on the line if it is necessary to save the life of the master. Dogs are one of the pets provided with best care. This is probably the reason why prospective dog owners would make sure that the pet brought home is in good health. The breeder may give a guarantee on the puppy but nothing can ever guarantee that the owner will be free from emotional distress if the pet dies.

- How to get rid of a dog you no longer want?
The affection that we have for our pets, especially dogs, cannot be penned. We accept them as our family members and as such allow them to become an integral part of our life.
However, there are instances when an owner would have to find a new home for the pet. An owner may be aged and sickly and no longer have the capability to care for the pet. The owner may need to move to a place where dog ownership is not allowed. As mentioned dogs are considered to be members of the family but if the owner is made to choose between a dog and the health of a family member, the human family member will surely be chosen. But how would you get rid of a dog that you no longer want?
Obviously a caring and loving owner can never abandon the pet on the roadside. Taking the dog to a shelter to be euthanized should be the last resort. There are many people who would want to have a dog but can’t afford to buy one from a breeder. You may not be aware but your neighbor’s son may have dreamed of having a dog for so long. Try giving the dog to your friends. This way you can be sure that the dog will be passed on to people who would take good care of your pet. Moreover, if a friend got the dog you will have the chance to see the pet once in a while. Friends may not always be willing to take the dog. A sign in the yard about the availability of the dog will be noticed by people interested to get a dog. Another option is to post ads in newspapers. Take advantage of the internet and search for people interested to adopt a dog. There are quite a number of options. However, make sure that the dog will be in good hands.
