His Ultimatum “Me Or The Dogs” Didn’t Go As Expected… (20 pics)

Posted in Animals   13 Jun 2018   / 2885 views

This is Liz Haslam who decided to choose her 30 rescue dogs over her husband

Mike Haslam and Liz have been married for 25 years when suddenly he gave her a very unusual ultimatum

53-year-old Mike made his wife choose between him and her pets after getting completely fed up with the mess at their house

Since Liz is from a truly animal-obsessed family, her answer wasn’t unexpected

“I thought after 25 years, he should know giving up the dogs was not what my intentions were,” said Liz

“My husband said ‘it is me or the dogs.’ I haven’t seen or heard from him since”

Mike and Liz met when she was only 16, and got married in 1991

After the family moved into a two-bedroom farmhouse with half an acre of land, Liz decided to start a boarding kennel business

She also founded BedforBullies, and began fostering dogs that often have medical/behavioral issues

At the moment Liz is fostering 30 rescue dogs and many of them are experiencing very complex needs

Five dogs are deaf, two have only one eye

A few of them are ex-fighting dogs, one also suffers from brain damage and other defects

They require constant care and Liz admits that she usually spends around 18 hours per day helping the poor animals

“It is very deliberating job, you can’t have a day off,’ Liz said

“I don’t sit down till 11:30pm at night so you can’t just go on holiday”

“And I can’t just turn around and say I am not going to do it anymore, it is my responsibility, I took the dogs in I can’t just stop”

Although her business is successful, it doesn’t cover all the costs

Liz has fostered so many dogs, however, her landlord is now insisting she must move out of the property within a year and she’s looking for a new home herself

It doesn’t make her sad though…

“I have chosen to do this. I love it”
