4YO Neutered Male Weimaraner

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a 4-year-old male Weimaraner. He's in excellent health, is well trained (including house trained and general commands like sit, down, pick it up, leave it, etc.). He's neutered.

I'm looking to find a better home for him because my 3YO step-daughter is an absolute princess. She screams non-stop whenever Flint is "out" (of the basement). She can't stand doggy breath, etc. Flint treats her well, she just can't stand associating with someone below "princess" level. :-P So when she's home, Flint is in the basement, and that's not much of a life for a dog. I'd like him to have a better home.

You can view some pictures here:

He comes with three months (approx.) of Heart Guard and Frontline. He comes with a bed, a leash, food, a food bin, some toys, collars, etc. I'm only looking for a better home, not someone new to pet ownership. He's free, but please, serious inquiries only.

I'm in Erie, PA but I'm willing to drive to drop him off.

What is scary is that "Princess" & her peers will run this country oneday...Aren't "Princess's parents doing her a HUGE favor by letting her know how much more important she is than all of God's other creatures? >:(...I'd like to spank the kid & beat the crap out of the parents...That was an April fools joke...right? :-\ :'(

I felt compelled to send Mr. Princess's stepdaddy an e-mail as follows:

This is an April fools day joke right?...lol...It must be because I can't imagine letting a 3 yr. old run my house like that...If it's not a joke...Good luck with "Princess" in the years to come...Forget the fund for higher education...St art saving for psychotherapy now.

Was this too harsh?...Like I care in this instance. :(

I can't wait till 'Princess' gets a little older and starts threatening to report her parents for child abuse if she doesn't get what she wants and gets it RIGHT NOW! I'd be advertising her instead of the dog. 'Princess' probably wants a dog that looks like a wig on crack like Britney Spears has.

It really annoys me that people will go on about how wonderful their dogs are and how they love them, but they want to get shut of them. I often put dogs on the SPCGB website for rehoming and get some two pages of A4 florid saga about the dog. It makes me sick to my stomach to be honest and I have to bite my lip rather than e-mail them back and tell them what I really think.

I would tell the princess to go to her room if she could not get along with the dog. Good Grief, someone needs to take control before the princess becomes a dictator. >:(

Well, you know that if you wrap it around them sticky side out, it doesn't leave marks and you have the added benefit of sticking them to the wall!!!!     ;D

"Princess" needs a major attitude adjustment, and that poor puppers needs to find a family that actually has a brain, and uses it.

The brat NEEDS duct taping- its only abuse when you rip it back off, so avoid that, leave it on her!  If it came down to that situation in MY house, I would get rid of the kid and keep my dogs!
