If your small dog feeds you three to four squirrels it's already bought it's weight in food if not more depending on how small a dog.

I would dump any pets.
Those who say they wouldn't be able to eat their pets clearly do not possess the mindset necessary to last any meaningful length of time without their comforts.

Wouldn't it be better to kill your pets rather then dumping them off somewhere?
I would wager that if someone needed to have their pet in a survival situation for their mental health, then when the pet does die it's going to have the opposite effect, if not making your mental health worse than if you never brought the dog at all. If you went into a survival situation without that crutch, you wouldn't have to deal with the loss of said crutch. Also in reference to my first post in this thread. If your mental health is so tenuous that not having fido out there surviving with you is going to make it that much more difficult to get by. Than you don't have to mindset necessary to survive without all the comforts of modern living.
