So I know that I will probably get crucified for saying this... but I don't feel attached to my dog. My husband and I decided to adopt Tori, this AMAZING lab mix. She is fun, and smart, and super active... but neither him nor I are feeling bonded or attached. The really effed up part is that it was my idea to walk around the humane society and see if we liked anyone, and she came right up to us, and we both really liked her, so we signed the papers and brought her home. She is house and crate trained, no accidents, no issues. She loves to play tug of war and fetch, Tori doesn't even care about our 18 year old cat (Tori does however love to bark at and chase our macaw). ANYWAY. 4 weeks in and my husband and I had a long conversation and we feel the same way "maybe she isn't meant to be ours"... I have NEVER felt this way before, I have always had dogs, cats, birds, and rabbits, and animals in general growing up and I always felt attached almost instantly, but Tori is different... she's the only one that I feel like I can't connect with. This isn't fair to her either. We take her in and because we are having a hard time bonding does not seem like a legitimate enough reason to send her back... I just wanted to know if any of you have had this problem? I mean... in a world of billions of people, I can't be the only one feeling like I can't bond with my dog, right? I need help... my husband and I have agreed to more walking and training time to see if maybe that will help create a bond... but I am feeling so hopeless and helpless in this very new situation to me.
