Wolfgang has been with me for almost 3 months 'til today.
In that months, I saw Wolfgang bloom from a scared, skinny dog with a flea infestation, multiple bacterial infections, and worms, to a healthy and happy dog, very frisky and loving. He had played daily with Lola; they were buddies, "BFFs"
Before I took him in, I checked with the condo association and the landlord if it was okay to take him in, due to him being a foster dog (not a permanent dog), I got the go-ahead.
Last Friday, during work, I got an emergency call from the landlord telling me that the condo association is threatening to press me to get rid of *TWO* (including Wolfgang and one of my furbabies H and L), due to "violation of two-dog policy." I was stunned and pointed out to him and he and the condo association agreed that I'd take care of the foster dog until he finds a home. I added that the flyer is already out with several rescues, of him being ready for adoption, and that I have a family interested in adopting him. He said that the neighbors were complaining (I can figure out who since there's two neighbors in condo that don't like me), and that if there's more complaints, the association can evict me if I refuse to comply with the issue. To get rid of Wolfgang *AND* either Lola or Hairy. I asked him if he can encourage them to postpone that 'til third week of September when the family comes by (they live in Ontario and will be driving down that time to get Wolfgang). He said he can't since the condo association sent him an official letter already, giving him a notice of warning, of a week of deadline and he had already used two days arguing my case with them. At that time, I knew I had no options left, but to send out messages of urgency to the family and other rescues. The family did not reply in the three days, when one rescue said that they can take him in right away.
With a heavy heart, I drove him to West Virginia today- a road trip taking 7 hours round way. The rescuer reassured me that Wolfgang is in good hands.
What sticks in my mind at this time, a few hours after returning to town-
They threatened MY babies. Lola and Hairy.
I don't like the condo association anymore, I don't trust them anymore. They did not talk with me. No neighbors had talked to me. No one bothered to find out Wolfgang's story, or that he had a potential forever family. But no... they had to have him out all because he was a "third dog." (never mind that I got permission- which I should have asked in paper, instead of vocal- but that's after the spilled milk.) They threatened my Hairy and Lola who hadn't done anything wrong, who have been with me all the years while living here. I don't feel comfortable here anymore.
Nevertheless.... Ain't happy.
