Im annoyed!!! I have been calling the shelters and rescues in my area and they are just ugh! I have to fill out pre approve forms then wait till i get approved. Then i get to look at the dogs. If i dont get approved i can't even look at the dogs. They want me to come in 2 times to look at the dogs, then some require home visits. Then it just gets better. I have to bring my dogs in for them to see and to make sure the dogs get along. And if nobody has on record their shots are up to date forget it. I only take my dogs to the vet for life threating things and to get fixed! I do the rest myself. So i might as well not bother. This is very flustering for me. I would rather save one but i may have to buy one. Thats just sad. And thats just for dogs their worse for cats. What are the shelters like in your area? The one down in Nashville where my friend got hers you walk in pick them out and leave. I may have to fly down there. But by the time i do that i could have bought a reg purbred with the money.
