Vent: Before my head blows up, cruel dog treatment.

On one of my local dog groups there is a person with a Catahola/lab mix 11wk old pup that they got at 5wks. They first had issue and said the pup was to rowdy,people posted helpful info like exericise,its a baby,etc. A few days later it was I think the dog is deaf because of the way it acts,lots of suggestions to go to the vet,some at home test,etc. Now she wants to dump the pup because it isn't housebroke. She claims the poor pup has horrible poo and goes all the time. She feeds Purina ONE which she claims is top of the line quality food for pups. I suggested that maybe the pup had an issue with the grains in the food and so did some other people and she point blank said,Well this pup ain't getting any special food so it can just stay outside in a pen if no one wants it. How freaking mean. I asked if her child had a dietary issue would she still force her child to eat the food and tell her to just suck it up? I'm so ticked off.

She was just offered a home by someone else who actually earlier said to try something and she just blurted out that she wouldn't give the dog to any of us because we think we know it all. The page is ran by a rescue and she claims she didn't post on it wanting any tips to keep the dog she wanted to get rid of the dog. The dog has been there all of 6 wks and has been tried on according to her at least 6 different types of food. I just contacted the rescue and offered to pay for her food and spay for the next 6 months. Hopefully this will help them be able to take her. This is a very small rescue so who knows.
Just got a moment to finally come update. She surrendered the dog to the rescue. I bought her the first bag of TOTW Pacific stream and I also got some duck treats. The rescue was able to take her only because I am paying for her food bill and spay,the previous owner actually had all her shots currrent and had her on heartworm meds so there was no cost for that. We are going to try her for a month on TOTW and see how it goes. The rescue says they don't think she is actually deaf and once she is more settled they are going to see how things go before there is cost to have her tested.
