Geez who is this dog, Britney Spears?  She has a representative!?  I hope you hear back soon, that’s crazy.

I haven’t been through any pet adoption processes, but I would definitely contact them again tomorrow. They may not do any business over the weekend, but I think it’s safe to say that it can’t hurt to contact them again. I mean, does sending too many emails make you a bad candidate for dog adoption? I think it shows that you are seriously interested in giving this dog a good home. You could even explain to the rep the situation you went through before and let her know that you and your Fiance are very serious about adoption. Anyway, good luck! Be sure to post pics when everything works out!! Smile

HAHAHA!  She looks like a fluffy little Ewok!!!

And MissAsB, it isn’t unusual for dogs in a volunteer/foster-home based rescue to have “Representatives”…we foster for such an organization, and the rep is the go-to person for us if we have questions, or just want to say “the dog is doing great!” or if we need food, or if the dog is sick/hurt and needs to see a vet.  They are also the person who fields initial phone calls and e-mails about a particular dog.  If a person calls and wants to adopt Fluffy, they can answer some questions and help decide if that person is a good fit for the dog or not.  If they think it should move to the next step, they will coordinate a meeting between the foster home and the prospective forever family. 

Lilyfaith, you’ll find your dog!  Hopefully this one is it, but if it doesn’t work out, don’t lose hope.  I would continue to e-mail every day or two so you get your point across that you’re INTERESTED, STILL INTERESTED, and, if it’s a first-come-first-serve basis, that you were (in-all-likelihood) first. 🙂

awwwwww, soo cute!!! We’re hoping to adopt right after the wedding.  We’re planning on going straight to the SPCA or the county animal shelter, maybe that would be easier than having to deal with all the “representatives (lol)?”  Good Luck, I hope you guys get your adorable dog!

Hooray!  That’s so exciting!  I’m glad you finally heard back.  I think persistance really pays off with this sort of thing.  My sister applied at a Golden Retriever rescue in December or January and STILL hasn’t heard back!  Of course, they didn’t followed up either since they found a dog another way but still! 

Fortunately for us, the border collie rescue we’re going through seems to really be on top of things.  They said it could be a couple weeks for them to contact all of our references and they got it done in 3 days!  Next up is the home visit!
