Man Made His Wife Choose Between Her Rescue Dogs And Him – She Picked The Dogs

Dogs are our best friends. Dog owners would do everything to keep their buddies happy. When it comes to taking care of their health, there’s no room for compromise. Dogs need the best healthcare, and this woman did the best for her pups. Well, she actually took the whole thing to a different level.

Liz and Mike Haslam were married for 25 years. They got married in 1991, right after their graduation. The couple lived in a two-bedroom house in the countryside in Barnham, Suffolk, UK. They have one kid.

Liz fostered rescue dogs. She was raised by a father who owned an animal feed company. Her mom raised West Highlight Terries.

This gave Liz an idea. She started off her own business. Beds for Bullies offered home to abandoned animal. But, Mike wasn’t really happy about this, because they couldn’t find a home for each of the dog at the shelter.

Liz was focused on the dogs, because Mike was too busy with his work. One day, Mike told her that she had to pick between him and the dogs. That’s when their marriage ended.

“ Since that moment, I have neither seen nor heard from him. I thought that, after 25 years, he should’ve known that giving up dogs was not a part of my intentions, not at all. He knew from the moment we got married what I was all about. I don’t know what he expected.”

Today, Liz’s shelter is a home of 30 dogs. They get all the love, medical care and food they need.

“It is a very deliberating job, you can’t have a day off. I don’t sit down till 11:30 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.”

There were times when things got really bad and Liz had to live in a tent because she didn’t have enough money to pay the rent.

Liz is convinced that she made the right decision. Donations keep Beds for Bullies working. Liz also offers accommodation for pets whose owners go to a vacation. Liz has taken care of over 200 rescues.
