There are few relationships stronger than that of a dog and their guardian. Anyone who has experienced the joys of sharing their life with a dog knows that nothing can possibly compare to the unconditional love found in this bond. Our dogs are our confidants, our nap-buddies, and bonafide members of our families. When we adopted them and brought them into our homes, we made a promise that we would care for them every single day of their furry lives.

So, when someone tries to get in the way of this bond … it is not something that should be taken lightly. All too often, people who committed to adopting dogs – and cats too – decide that they no longer want to be responsible for their pets and end up abandoning them in shelters, or worse, on the streets. Sometimes these people decide to abandon their animals because a roommate or a significant other doesn’t like pets and rather than recognizing the gravity of caring for their pet, they opt to desert them.

When this man was asked to give up his dog by his girlfriend, he did what many do and posted an ad on Craigslist…

We don’t know about you, but we think he definitely made the right choice with this ad! It might seem harsh, but when you get between a dog and their loving pet parent, you’re likely to get burned.
