‘My wife said my dog ran away but she took him to the kennel – I’m leaving her’

A furious man has revealed that his wife secretly took his dog to the kennel after telling him that she had run away.

He explained that when he and his wife got married he already had a dog, who he “loved” and was “my buddy”.

But when his wife got pregnant she became increasingly paranoid the dog would be a danger to the baby as she was “an aggressive bread”.

The man insists his dog was well-trained and when his wife suggested rehoming the dog, he refused.

Then one day she called him crying at work saying that the dog had run away and that she hadn’t been able to run after it.

He admitted: “I believed her. I looked for that dog for weeks.”

Eventually he just had to accept it because there were other more pressing matters like welcoming their newborn.

He said: “It’s been five years since then and we now have three children. I’ve wanted to get a new dog but the kids take a lot of energy and time. My wife has always had a new excuse not to get another dog.

“I found out recently that my dog didn’t run away, my wife and her father took the dog to the pound while I was at work because her parents agreed with her about the dog being “dangerous.”

“I’m FURIOUS. She was MY dog, my BABY. She wasn’t dangerous. I would never have agreed to that. She probably never got adopted.

“I’m honestly mad enough to consider a separation if not for the kids and practical reasons. I’ve told her that the only way to make it up even a little bit is for us to get a dog.

“She ultimately doesn’t want a dog at all and complained that she would have to do too much with it. I’m not planning to let up on this one this time.”

He took to Reddit to ask users for advice and everyone agreed that he should divorce her.

One person said: “You said you looked for the dog for weeks and I’m sure you were distraught while you searched for her. Your Wife continued to watch you in your pain, knowing she caused it, and did nothing.

“She also disrespected you as a parent! She made a decision that something wasn’t acceptable for your child – to be around this dog – and you disagreed, but she decided she knew better than you.”

A few people said his wife was “cruel” and a “psychopath.”

And others told him not to bring another dog into the household in fear his wife would “find another way to dispose of it when you’re not around”.
