Owners give up their dog because he looks like David Bowie

Thursday, December 18, 2008

Being the wrong colour to match a sofa and even having eyes "like David Bowie" rank among some of the excuses given by dog owners for abandoning their pets, according to a leading animal charity.

Here is the top 10 list of most irresponsible reasons for abandoning a dog:
:: "My dog doesn't match the sofa."

:: "The dog looks evil and has different coloured eyes, just like David Bowie."

:: "My black dog doesn't match new white carpet, can we swap him for a white dog?"

:: "My current dog is too old, can we swap for a puppy or younger model?"

:: "My dog ate the Christmas turkey cooling on the worktop."

:: "My pet guinea pig got worried with a dog in the house."

:: "The dog opened all the presents on Christmas Eve."

:: An owner who accidentally knelt in dog mess while cleaning it up brought the dog in the very next day.

:: A puppy bought as a present for elderly couple with dementia.

:: The negative image of Staffordshire Bull Terriers because of their perceived resemblance to Pit Bull-style dogs.
