I've seen today a dog for adoption who I have absolutely and completely fallen in love with, yet I have not the time nor the room to keep her. This is torture :( Anyone else ever fallen in love with a rescue even when they know they don't have enough time or space to actually adopt it?
I saw the most adorable Staffie at the pound I wanted sooo bad. He was a precious guy with the best attitude, a little shy but sweet. I wanted him so bad, I almost begged my mom for him. I tried to get in contact with some rescues to take him but we were going on vacation the next day and I didn't have his ID number from the pound to tell them which dog it was. I searched for his ad on dogster and just couldn't find it so I prayed for him over and over. I'm not sure whatever happened to him but I hope he found a home!
Yes. years ago I had a beautiful red doberman-XXexpensive looking I could not keep him because I had no one to help me, if he and my beautiful foundation sire got into it. I wonder to this day if he was a gift from God.
yes, a dog named teddy. he was a gsd/beagle mix and was in the pound at the vet hospital i worked at. it was my first job and i was 17 at the time. he was such an adorable and obedient dog. he was scheduled to be euthanized and i told my boss i was adopting him so he wouldn't be put down. i used to take him out on the weekends to the local parks and we had alot of fun together. i couldn't really adopt him because my families gsd was dog aggressive and wouldn't have allowed another male in the house. i even paid for teddy to stay at the hospital and have surgery to remove a cyst while i was away on vacation just so they wouldn't put him to sleep. after awhile they asked me if i was ever going to take him. i tried desperately to find him a home and i couldn't. so one night while i was working i made the decision to have him put down. i looked all over the hospital for the tech so i could have her do it. i couldn't find her anywhere and then found out she had left for the day. i took that as a sign that teddy wasn't meant to be put down. so i continued looking for a home for him. a few days later i ran into a fireman from our town and asked him if he wanted a dog. i never expected him to say yes but he did. so i brought teddy to his home and was told i could visit him anytime i wanted. one night a few weeks later i was walking our gsd max down our block and there was a dog running loose around where we walked max to potty. max started freaking out as the dog got closer to us. it was teddy !!!! i immediately ran home with max and went back out calling for teddy. he came running to me and i brought him home. my dad and i took him to the pound and told the aco who he belonged to. the next day teddys owner came and got him. i visited teddy a few more times but then the fireman moved so i couldn't visit him any more. last i heard from my dad, teddy lived to be 17 years old. i have tears in my eyes now thinking about him. he was such an awesome dog and i am glad he lived a good long life. and i am also glad i couldn't find that tech that night. he was renamed sparky by the fireman and his family.
Definatley! actaully i am right now with a dog name Moe and although i know nothing will ever happen i still have that spark of hope that i think we all have when we've fallen in love with that specail dog!

i've seen so many dogs in the shelter that i've fallen in love with and wanted to bring home. during the summer there was a pit bull that was looking for a home, she had been neglected and had really severe burns....but she was still so loving and trusting, it broke my heart. i really wanted to bring her home. i went to visit her quite often, and thankfully she got a really good home, i was os happy. she was such a sweetheart!
