vtfireman85 Posted December 23, 2022 Share Posted December 23, 2022 Has anyone ever filled out an adoption application for a rescue? Holy crap! I think it would be easier to adopt a kid! We have always adopted our cats, I mean a cat is a cat is a cat. They practically give them away. So far we have applied to 3 different Lab rescues, 2 said we sounded awesome but unfortunately the dog in question had just been adopted 🤨 third still waiting to hear. so as an aside i have noticed a few things with this, one, which I already knew is and dog without spots and of unknown origin is labeled a “lab mix” 8 out of 10 are pitbulls, my beef is not with pits, but with the irresponsible people calling them what they are not, they are fine dogs to the right owners, but taking a Pit off the street or one that has come from lord knows what or where and sending it home with just any old person is about like labeling a Keg of TNT “mild skin irritant” we are kind of getting discouraged at this point, because of our small daughter we weren’t quite feeling the puppy thing and were looking at rescue labs with some background history-owners died kind of thing. We were both a little nervous about the idea anyway, and knowing it wasn't an abuse/neglect/ who knows what situation seems a safer bet than no background or bad background. We both have experience with rescued dogs with challenging history and the behavior it can create, in each case every household member was old enough to understand and work with the challenges presented. i am likening this to tractors, would like a new specific tractor, but delivery and break in time is an issue, finding a used specific tractor is proving challenging too.
