Subject: Fwd: Need your help!

Last December we welcomed another addition to our household when my Godmother entered a nursing home - we took in her 8 year old chow mix, Buddy.  This gave us an animal family of 1 special kitty (Mr. Tips) and 4 large dogs (Emmit and Indie, a 10 y/o pit/chow mix named Maya and of course Buddy)  We were a little concerned as Buddy was an only pet prior to living with us,  but he seemed to settle in well with the puppy chaos and he didn't have any territorial issues with the other male of the house.  There was the usual stand off between him and the cat, but this consisted mostly of stares from across the room followed by the cat hissing for the first few weeks.  

One morning my husband heard our cat scream from our patio and rushed out to find him locked in Buddy's mouth.  To make a long story short, Mr. Tips is now fine, but had a slow 4-5 month recovery from the incident.  We have since kept him in a room isolated from the dogs and let him out in the evenings after we lock Buddy either outside or in a room by himself.  This obviously is not an ideal situation and honestly, we've been making it work for longer than what is probably acceptable.  We have tried reaching out to friends and family to see if they can take Buddy but obviously have come up empty, otherwise I wouldn't be writing you this email. I really cannot bear the idea of abandoning him at shelter with a possibility of euthanasia, knowing that he is a sweet, healthy dog who just doesn't know not to eat cats.

We are looking to surrender at this point as we have a baby due in February and just cannot take the risk of something happening.  Additionally, we feel as if this situation of isolating the cat from the rest of the household has reached it's expiration.

Quick Facts on Buddy
Male Chow mix (neutered)
Approximately 8-9 years old
Good health
Shots are current
Not currently on heart worm preventative
No issues with children (we have a 10 year old)
I've attached a few pictures of him as well - I appreciate any help you can provide.
Thank you,
Kiala Hanneman
