Hello all!! I had a question regarding rescues. It seems like many of you are here are involved in rescues and maybe you can shed some light on my situation. I am looking to adopt a German Shepherd. Don't get me wrong...I know there are some good breeders out there and I mean no disrespect. But I would really like to adopt--there are some terrific dogs out there. Every time I see a dog I like, I will submit an application. Ironically, it seems like the dogs I am interested in get adopted (some say I am an angel)!! I will also do my best to follow up. I know that most (if not all) rescues are run by good-hearted volunteers who are extremely busy. But, I can't help feeling it is me. I submitted and application for a GSD on Wednesday afternoon and I haven't heard anything. I was curious to see if this is "normal processing time" or maybe they just didn't like my application. I apologize if I come off a bit paranoid! Some people told me to lie on my application about certain things (ie letting the dog on the sofa--we wouldn't and some say we should lie and say we would), but I don't think that is appropriate. After all, the main interest is the dog, right? Well, if any of you have any thoughts, I appreciate it. Thanks so much!!
