An embarrassing incident happened in New York City when the couple decided to get rid of their pet dog because they were going to welcome a baby. According to the former owners, they didn't "need to practice with a dog anymore." The tiny dachshund, who was no longer of use, was abandoned at the shelter door...
Early one morning, Nicki was waiting for a NY animal shelter to open, when suddenly she saw a little dachshund at the door. Nicki had come to the shelter to surrender a stray dog she had found on the street.
She asked the man who was with the dachshund if the dog was a stray. The man replied that he and his wife were expecting a baby and decided to get rid of the dog because they didn't "need to practice with a dog anymore." According to him, to surrender the dachshund to the shelter was a huge weight off his chest. The man realized Nicki would wait for the shelter to open, so he left, leaving the dachshund alone.
As soon as the owner left, Nicki noticed the little dachshund get anxious and start trembling with fear
Nicki realized that this tiny and nervous dog just might not be able to handle the noisy environment of the shelter, suddenly finding herself in an unfamiliar place. Although she already had two large dogs at home, Nicki couldn't leave the poor dachshund there. "I figured I would just foster her until we could find [her] a better home," Nicki recalled. All the way home, she could feel the dog shivering in her lap.
Nicki broke the news of the new temporary family member to her husband: "He was a little mad that I brought home another dog, since I had just recently adopted Maddie the German Shepherd."

Just a week after being abandoned by her former family, this little dog ended up with a new family where she is much more loved and appreciated. And one thing is for sure, no one else will practice with Molly before having a baby. She is now a full-fledged member of a loving family!
Can one use dogs to practice with before having kids?
