Imagine having to choose between your beloved family dog and a friend going through a tough time. That's the dilemma faced by a 32-year-old man, his wife, and their two young daughters. They live in a modest apartment, which could host another person for a short period without too much trouble. When an old friend (28m) going through a divorce asked for a place to stay, they agreed, until they learned about his severe dog allergy. 🐶😷

A Tough Decision: Friend or Furry Family?

This man and his family were put in a difficult position when they had to choose between their aging family dog and a friend in need of a place to stay. The friend's severe dog allergy meant that the dog would have to go, but the family couldn't bear to part with their beloved pet. Now, they're facing backlash from their friend group, with some calling them heartless for choosing their dog over their friend's well-being. However, others acknowledge the cultural differences at play, as the family is originally from a pet-friendly area in the US but now lives in a country where dogs are not as highly valued. 😔🌏
