Quoting Ellie.:" I feel this way about our dog. My SIL found a couple dogs running around, so we took one. It's min pin ... [snip!] ... but he just pees, or chews smurf up. I hate the thing and want it gone. I thought I was a pet person, but I guess not."
I don't think that makes you not a pet person. It makes you a sane person with a normal - maybe above normal - tolerance level for bullsmurf.
I'm an animal lover to the nth degree (seriously, my kids' friends have been known to call our house the zoo house) and I would not be happy about that. I understand the need for permanent placement of animals like that, but I personally couldn't deal with it. I'm three days into a dog that's not even that bad and if he were my only current experience with dogs I'd probably never want one again.
