We got a Shepherd Chow mix 2 weeks ago. Double coat. He is very sweet. But after only 2 weeks he was at the vet because of a hit spot that grew like a wildfire. We have a pond that he is just drawn to. The double coat is keeping his skin wet. The vet says my best option is to clip his beautiful long coat to be about an inch long - at least all Summer. This sweet boy was with his prior family over 5 years. So he is already depressed about the move. Will this be awful for him? He seems to have been through a lot in just 2 weeks already. I am really concerned that this sweet boy is in the wrong place. Any thoughts?

Ask any animal shelter or rescue group, and they will tell you that owners surrender their dogs for a myriad of reasons. More common ones include: Moving, can’t keep; landlord won’t allow; not enough time; and can’t afford.

Although those are the reasons commonly given, the underlying cause far more often in those cases, is that something interfered with the development of the all-important bond between dog and human that ensures the dog a lifelong, loving home. Every day thousands of dog lovers move and take their dogs with them, find a new place to live where dogs are allowed, rearrange busy schedules to make time for their dogs, and reprioritize budgets to cover their dog-care expenses. see more https://www.whole-dog-journal.com/lifestyle/dog-rehoming-when-is-it-the-right-decision/
