Man urged to dump girlfriend because she wants dog put down as it annoys her

Relationships aren't always easy.

But one of the keys to a successful partnership is compromise.

Sadly for this fella, he's been put in an awkward predicament as his girlfriend doesn't like his healthy dog.

She claimed it's getting on her nerves so she'd rather her partner just puts his pup down.

Now speaking to Reddit, the man explained how his seven-year-old dog has separation anxiety and cries when he's out of sight.

He said: "I have two dogs – and have been with my girlfriend for four years.

"Lately she's been asking me to take my youngest to the shelter or have her put down because she can't handle when she screeches.

"She used to screech really loud when I would come home from work. A week ago she said 'either she goes or I do'."

He added: "I caved and told her I would take her to a shelter but I have zero intentions of doing so.

"My dog has been getting a lot better."

The woman was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder so he questioned whether this impacted her feelings towards his dogs.

He continued: "We adopted a cat about three years ago and she's talking about putting her down because she also has anxiety."

The man revealed: "It might be my imagination, but my dog started acting like this since she came into our lives.

"Last year when my girlfriend was gone for most of the year, my dogs and cat were so chill.

"Is it bad that I choose my dog over my girlfriend? I love my dog so much and I know she would fight a hippo for me."

While many suggested they would leave their partner, others were more sympathetic towards the woman and her diagnosis.
