Crowdfunding to Help a Dog We Just Got

#1

Hi guys,

This is the first time I’ve started a small crowdfunding campaign. Let me explain:

We’ve adopted a dog called Gucci as a temporary family member (until we see how well she deals with our current dog Steve). She doesn’t have anything, though I was able to get her a comfortable bed and we have some spare food though not enough. We will cover the basics such as food, but she also needs a chip, toys, vaccines and some training from a professional.

Unfortunately, this dog has been waiting months for a family to come along; if this goes well, we will keep her. The main reason she has been waiting so long is because of her behaviour. I believe that she was treated poorly in the past, and she was closed in a small space even during heavy rain. She’s currently aggressive, but I’m hoping that a professional will be able to stop by and help her; I know she’s a sweetheart.

This is her! She is a Sharpei:

If anyone is willing to donate something, monetary wise, we’ll be incredibly grateful and we’ll be able to take care of her better. I would rather help animals than many people I know. If we’re unable to keep her permanently, any leftover funds will be given to the new owners. We do hope to keep her though.

Should you want to help please PM me. Or I can simply leave the details here. Granted that if there isnt help, I will still obviously feed her. Until she can take the vaccines she needs to calm down, gain trust in humans, and feel safe.

Much love,
Miguel

As I am short on money myself, and do not like donating it so much anyway (and that is not to you personally, but in general. So please don’t be offended; I have 2 dogs myself), I can recommend to you to check out TV shows of professionals who deal with dogs. Here in Germany we have smth. like “Der Hundeprofi”, I’m sure you’ll have an equivalent or will find some good channels with advice on how to deal with these kinda dogs on YouTube. Second advice would be books. There are a lot of interesting books about a dogs behaviour. Check them out if you can :slight_smile: If money is an issue maybe there are free ebooks or some in your public library? Obviously some things like vaccines, chip etc still require money but anyway when you can cut some costs with free solutions why not.

All the best! Looking forward to the pics :wink:

Here are some more pictures :slight_smile:

She is 4 years old. Today would be her last day as she was planned to… Disappear from the world. We had to act immediately and will do our best for her.

Know how you feel mate. Our two dogs also were from one of these places where they make them disappear after a certain time if not taken in. One of our dogs is from Portugal actually, the other from Cyprus.

Definitely! And completely understand you, seriously. I too dont like to donate much.

I do have some experience with aggressive dogs. Mine is mixes with a pitbull. We had to take care of her and even though this wont be easy, we will be patient. Today is her first day with us, I am pretty nervous still! :slight_smile:

Very interesting!!! Adopting, or even temporary family, is helping these animals. We dont yet know if we will keep her as she needs a lot of work to be done, behaviour wise. We had an offer a few minutes ago from a dog coach to help with her integration, which is great!

I can try to help you with dealing with aggressive dogs to some degree- right now I’m afraid I don’t really have any money to throw at it- I’ve already set aside about a months’ income to fix the folks’ car, and the laptop project I’m trying to take care of for the county.

If something changes, I’ll be happy to throw a few bucks your way.

@Miguel - A dog is never a “she” or “he”; using such pronoun, when referring to animals, proves an exacerbate affection for animals (or dogs in such case). According to English dictionary you should use pronoun “it”, which “refers to a nonhuman, animal, plant, or inanimate thing”. You can use “female dog” instead of “she”, when the subject is an animal.

Sorry if my observation bothers you. It’s not that I hate animals, but in school I took a 4/10 mark just for not using this pronoun correctly, and every time I notice an animal lover using she/he, I get flashbacks of that bad mark.

When the animal becomes part of the family, they’ve earned the he/she pronoun in my book.

I am aware of that but for me animals are part of our family. Just like their names, my dog is Steve! :slight_smile:

The last I noticed, they’ve generally got genitals, which would be the terminology reason for he, or she. Your teacher was a cunt.

A dictionary may also be a cunt.

Dictionary has always been an arse to be honest, always trying to make languages static and dull.

Dictionary doesn’t make the language. The ones who use, thus we, make the language.
