    'Take this dog back, it clashes with our curtains': Callous demand of woman who took home rescue pet

    Not exactly animal cruelty, but maaaaaaann of all the stupid reasons to return a dog, this would probably make the top three. ¬_¬

    I think it would be in the best interest for the dog if it was returned anyways. Someone who feels that a dog should match the decor is not exactly "good owner" material.

    I get why she did this, because my mom had to buy new couches to match my Golden Retriever when I was younger. She didn't want the dog hair to show on the furniture when he shed lol. So I guess to me this doesn't sound too outlandish, but I think she should have bought curtains to match the dog instead of giving him back.

    And before anyone says vacuum more, have you ever owned a dog? You would have to vacuum every hour to not have a hair in sight. But I mean that's what happens when you own pets, the woman should have knew that before bringing the dog home.

    The floor in my room is actually marbled gray and white to match my cat.

    They tried but had to send her back when she didn't match the cages.

    Too easy.

    Our Irish Setter had six owners within the first year of his life. My Dad is now the seventh owner and we've had him for three years or so. He's our best friend.

    First owner was an old lady in a wheel chair who couldn't keep up with the hyper-active Irish Setter puppy.

    Second owner was a hunter who discovered that the dog hated loud-noises. So gun-shots scared the dog off.

    Second owner sold the dog to another hunter who sold it for the same reason to a fourth owner. (Some people don't learn.)

    Not sure what happened between 4-6, but these people really never gave the poor dog a chance and they missed out. He's a really sweet guy and we're happy to have him. :)

    Having worked with rescues and shelters a few times...this is not unusual, especially with people who impulse buy. It is bizarre that this woman came back every day until she could take him home - she looked like a perfect adoption candidate that way. But she probably only 'loved' him because he was cute and she wanted a live apartment decoration, and she probably went out and bought another animal after taking him back.

    She should've gotten a white poodle and dyed the dogs hair to match her curtains. :D

    Stop with the headdesks. You might find your dog to be clashing with the curtains if you keep it up. :p

    Yeah, it's a stupid reason for bringing the dog back and she should have thought things through a bit more first. But at least she returned it to the shelter where it'll be taken care of and have a chance at finding a more suitable home. The way some people in this thread are reacting, one would think she'd just shot the dog or drowned it in the river or something.

    Should've been a cat instead. That would've made for some epic headlines: "Pussy returned on grounds of its fur not matching drapes".
