Getting my hopes up again over a puppy

Last week on facebook someone posted two adorable puppies for free. When I clicked on the original post the puppies had already found homes. No big deal. I friended the woman two days ago (she's the mother of a girl I went to school with). Last night right before bed I was lookin through facebook and saw this woman posted that the girl pup is back to needing a home as te grandchild is allergic to it. The boy puppy is cuter but I want a girl puppy as in my experience they are less aggressive and territorial. I am waiting to hear from the womans daughter today to see if we can have the girl puppy. I don't think they are available to homes until October 1st which is my late husbands bday.

I think that it is being taken by someone else which bums me out as the woman was kind of acting like we might get her last night. Maybe today her daughter told her she found someone already I'm not sure. I would like to be told for sure though!

@shaggin maybe if it is, you'll find another one you can get. Have you tried shelters?

@LadyDuck I'm glad I didn't say anything to my kids! I never got a call from the owner and saw the owners mother commented to others on her post that she was pretty sure they have found a home for her :( Nothing like getting my hopes up!

Wouldnt it be a wonderful surprise for my kids to get a new puppy on their fathers birthday. It would almost be like a celebration if he were still alive.

They apparently already found a home for her. I posted on facebook last night saying I wish free puppies were as easy to find as free kittens. Someone said they have beagels we can have but I'm not a fan of them. I got a private message from a friend of a friend who has puppies that were born a few days ago. They are 3/4 Chihuahua and 1/4 shitzu. I was hoping for a medium sized dog but I might take this one!

I missed how you came about getting your new little doll of a puppy. So glad it all worked out for you all.

A woman posted on facebook that this puppy was needing a home as the people who were going to take her the granddaughter was allergic. The woman was posting for her daughter and made it seem we could have her so we were waiting for a call from the daughter. We didn't get a call and the woman wrote on facebook the puppy was taken so we started looking for another free puppy. Then the woman commented that her daughter said we could have her that she just hadnt had time to call me. I guess they said she was taken so others would know she was promised. Once the daughter got ahold of me we went right out and bought food, toys, leashes etc!

I have not heard from the dog owner but her mother whom I had messaged last night commented to someone else on her post that she thinks they are both spoken for :( I am pretty bummed.

I won't buy one from a breeder. This one was adorable and free but I think based on what I see on Facebook that she might be spoken for already :( That's the hard part of people posting for others they have outdated information.

I am so excited today its so hard to wait for the phone call. I have to be patient as I know the girl is at the hospital with her father who is dying if brain cancer I believe. Not only that but there could be a list of people ahead of me.

The mother is Pekinese, Chuiaha and Jack Russell terrier. Father isnt known. I assume they will be tiny and our obviously mutts.
