Like I said before I found my dog, I went to a rescue adoption at a petsmart this weekend and was told NO! My kids were not even allowed to look at the dogs. WELL I had emailed them before like a week ago. Well I have emailed, call, went to rescues etc.. for a while now to look for my dog. No one ever called me back except this breeder who had a new litter but I didnt want a puppy. I also know an older dog would be less likely to get adopted and I am going to get another one as soon as I know my dog is ok with it. I dont have a name for him but we are going to draw names soon!. WELL i got 5 emails today and 3 messages about the dogs they have available!!!!! I was like umhh sorry but you said no to me at petsmart. The director said that was wrong and that I most definately qualify etc... I have a fenced yard we are a family of 4 with a 4 bedroom home 2 living room I mean we have more than enough room. But I just told them sorry but my dog found him. So they said if I change my mind to call them and I can definately get one from them later on. SO now I dont know if I want to deal with them. They made me feel really bad :( and made my son cried. Now that I have my dog they say we are qualified??? Sorry but a little too late. What do you all think? I will be getting another one but maybe in a few months I want to pamper my dog first and just give him lots of TLC. Opinions? Liz
I would wait a little while before getting another dog. Let Mojave (sorry I don't know what you're going to call him) have time to readjust and get used to the schedule at your house first. In a few months I am sure he'd love to have a friend! =0)
Oh most definately :) But I was wondering when the time is here would you all consider this rescue? I mean I guess I am hurt for the way they treated me. I am going to let my dog adjust first to us and give him lots of attention as I KNOW he will most definately need that. Oh I am excited lol...I just dont know what to think about this rescue.
I think you'll know when the new dog is ready for a friend. You'll start to see him more relaxed and into a schedule. I would continue to work with the rescue or the adoption people that called you. Like someone said, it is not the dog's fault. Maybe you can just tell the rescue people about Mojave and say you want to give him an adjustment period and to please keep informing you of dogs they think will fit into your lifestyle. =0) Good Luck!
I think that's a great idea. The shelter was wrong and rude, but don't let that one person ruin it for you. Maybe it was meant to be that way so you would find this dog. You'll know when the time is right too.
I agree, do not let the people there that day ruin it for you, because it sounds like they were wrong anyway(well, we knew that already) but it sounds like the rescue didn't know they were doing that, so maybe you halped someone else get a dog by telling the rescue how you were treated?? Don't let the way one person treated you stop you from finding another dog. I believe everything happens for a reason and so, in a wierd sort of way, you should be happy you were treated bad, I guess. Or you might not have gotten Mojave(sp)!
lovemysiberian..............I certainly would not hold what one employee said keep me from any store. I would complain about that person though. If for no other reason, they made your child cry. It has been my experience when employees in a store are rude, they are rude everywhere. I have had great experiences dealing with Petsmart. I have never bought a dog there, but they have always been helpful. Be sure to let us know what naame you decide on.
