So, Ellen adopted a small dog from Mutts and Moms, a Pasadena rescue group. According to Ellen, Iggy, the dog, didn’t get along with her cats, so she gave the dog to her hairstylist. The rescue agency found out, and claimed that this broke the terms of the adoption contract, and removed the dog from its new home.
Apparently, the contract said that once you adopt a dog from them, you can’t “unilaterally” decide to give it away. And the rescue group doesn’t believe the new home would be fit for the small dog (a Brussels Griffon mix terrier) because children under the age of 14 live there.
Says a spokesman for Mutts and Moms co-owner Marina Batkis:
“She doesn’t think this is the type of family that should have the dog. She is adamant that she is not going to be bullied around by the Ellen DeGenereses of the world … They are using their power, position and wealth to try to get what it is they want.” [Emphasis mine.]
And what they want? For a Brussels Griffon mix terrier to be left in a good home. Can someone please stop the Ellen Degenereseses of this world and their bullying ways?
