    DefaultIt May Be Too Late For Parker

    The insurance guy called me today. He informed me that if we don't get rid of the dog, we will lose our homeowner's insurance, and he doubts anyone else will take us. Since you all said a shelter or rescue would not take him, it looks like I'm going to have to have him put to sleep. He's only three years old!!! If this happens I will just go crazy. I can't believe this is happening. I am just heartbroken. A beautiful healthy animal has to die for no good reason.

    Also can I just add that I am utterly amazed at the number of people who think nothing of putting a dog down or getting rid of it, like it's a piece of garbage, nonchalently commenting. "Oh well, you'll just have to get rid of the dog". Are you freakin kidding me? This is my BEST FRIEND, part of my family not a piece of trash. When I starting crying and said, "I don't want to have my dog put to sleep", the insurance guy said, "Hmm you like him that much do you?"

    Oh wow, I am sorry you are going through this. It is horrible that it may end this way.

    I wouldn't take his word for it, I'd call around frankly.

    I wouldn't take his word for it either, I would call as many companies as I could.

    I'd be calling every insurance company in the yellow pages! That's a pretty threatening (at least very intimidating) comment your insurance guy made and it is TOTALLY out of line.

    Agree with the comments above, call around, don't loose hope and don't do anything drastic, take a deep breath and think about your options.

    Or how about the idea of just taking "the resident" dog off of your "home owner's" policy; that way the economic 'risk' is removed from the insurance company and you would be personally financially responsible for Parker.

    Call around, and go over all of your options, but frankly, I'm not surprised by your insurance company's response. A dog with a bite history is a huge liability. If Parker were to bite again and cause serious harm, you'd likely find yourself in a world of legal trouble. I'm sorry you're going through this.

    They ask when you get a new policy. At least around here they do. When we bought our house, not only did our agent ask if we had a dog, he asked what breed. The funniest thing is- they did a property inspection while I was at work one day after we moved in. The report came back stating no evidence of a dog (the guy obviously missed the overhead tie out for Mick's potty breaks).
