    my best friend is going through a hard time..
    he's on JSA..he was living in his dad's shed in the garden..his parents are divorced and mum's in her homeland..he's not on good terms with his dad, mainly coz his dad is a jerk and isn't bothered about him..
    basivally, his dad rents to tenants..and now he's decided to hand over the keys to an estate agent, which means that he's moving and my friend has to leave too..but his dad isn't obviously taking my friend with him..just told him he has two weeks to evacuate the shed and move..and my friend has a 6year old rotti dog as well..and his dad has been heartless and said he can give her away if he wants...

    he has no savings..is on JSA..has a degree in IT but is struggling to find a job..and is temporarily moving in with his bro, who isn't letting the dog stay round coz he has no garden..what is a solution? council property? but how???

    Your friend has one offer of help from someone who quite reasonably doesn't want a dog in the house.
    The alternative is a cardboard box on the high street - with a dog.

    Contact the PDSA. They can help get the dog fostered untill your friend is on his feet. If he has no money its free or they ask for a tiny contribution.
    I sympathise for a dog isnt just a pet but is such a large part of who we are.

    Good luck to your friend.

    Rotti? They are horrible dogs. He sounds like a chav, let him go live in a council house and sponge off the taxpayer like the rest of them with his dog
    that's such a mean and prejudicial thing to say..his dog is a very good and cute dog..i had the same opinion of rotties but after knowing his, she's a cutie and such a lovely dog..my friend is far from a chav..they got a rotti as a guard dog coz lots of stuff would get stolen before..he has a degree..he's been searching for a job where he can use the skills he has..but unfortunately he can't find one..i have told him many times in the past, when the situation wasn't as dire as it is now, to get a council property, however he has told me many times "but there are people who desperately need it or need it more than i do" and this was at a time when he lived in a shed with no heating, and please do not forget how cold it is in the UK and how cold it was this winter..he has to use candles to keep warm

    thank you for your help..and yeah exactly, he doesn't want to leave his dog..so when his dad offered that as a suggestion, he straight out refused to give her up..if he gives the dog to the PDSA, is he able to visit her whilst he gets sorted and then take her back once he IS sorted out?

    Aaaw,
    Well can't you find someone to temporarily look after that dog?
    And surely he can get a council house?

    If only you could substitute the rottweiler for a snowy owl.
