What do they say about when something seems too good to be true?

... ahh, yes - it probably is!

Jack's back. Things got a little shaky for a moment and he came back to me after being adopted out. Better now than later after he got attached, but still ... I'm disappointed since things seemed to be falling into place for him with finding such a good home.

Apparently not though.

After explaining his fear of new men and making the plan to bring him home after the holiday when it would be quieter (due to the fact his new family was having all their family over for the holiday), Jack's new parents apparently invited a bunch of people over within like 24 hours of bringing Jack into their home - he growled at a male in-law that stood up by him quickly and that was it - they wanted Jack out!

I told them he was beaten - it's evident by his destroyed eye and yet I guess they weren't understanding enough to work through it, to correct it and show Jack they aren't the people who did that to him. I tried to talk to them, get the story, see what could be done, but they just weren't understanding of what had happened and my gut feeling was: get him out! I mean, they invited a bunch of strangers over before Jack even got to know or trust them and the new house. That's just not smart at all even if you know the dog - let a lone a brand new one with a history like Jack! Poor Jack...
