my coworker is in the middle of a divorce -- she moved out of the house and found the only place that she could afford that will do a short term lease ( 6 months ) unfortunately the place is no pets -- she has a two year old chocolate Lab, named Luke that she left at her house with her soon to be ex husband. she sees the dog every other week mainly because she really doesn't want to see her husband.
coworker got a message the other day from her husband that basically said " you need to get your dog or I will take him to the pound " CW husband travels a lot and doesn't really feel like " making " time for Luke
she approached me today and asked if DH and I would be willing/able to take Luke on a short term basis ( she is moving to an animal friendly place in April 2012 ) -- space wise, we can make it work, financially, she will give us money for his food ( Avoderm sensitive stomach stuff ), vet treatment etc
if this was your situation - would you do it - reasons why or why not ? I can't stand the thought of the dog going to the pound -- coworker doesn't have anyone else that she would trust taking care of Luke and I think is using us as a last resort to avoid the pound.
