This is something that happend to a friend of mine this past week. She was trying to adopt a Doberman from a local Doberman Rescue group in our town. She filled out an application and when she did not here from them in over a week she called the Rescue group. The woman that answered was very rude to my friend. The lady told my friend that she filled out the application wrong by putting family down as references. The application never stated that she could not use family. My friend responeded by saying that the application never said not use family and if there was a problem with the app. why didn't they call her sooner. So my friend gave them numbers to friends of hers as a reference. The lady was still very rude to her. My friend was so fed up with her rudeness that she told her never mind about adopting the dog, because the attidue of the lady made her very uncomfortable to continue. My friend cried because she really wanted to adopt that dog and had prepared her house for her. Later on that day the owner of the rescue called to see what had happend. When my friend told the owner how rude the lady on the phone was her only responce was that was just the way the woman on the phone is. Then she told her that she wouldn't be interested in that dog anymore because the dog is just a big couch potato, even thought her profile on petfinders.com says that she is energetic dog full of life, great with kids and other animals. The owner also made the excuse that Doberman's are inside dogs and that My friend stated on application that the dog would stay outside while her and her husband where at work. Then the lady said that the area my friend lived in a lot of dogs where being stolen from homes. My friend lives out in the country on her fathers property. I feel like this rescue just didn't want to find this dog a good home.
Your true...but there is a possibility that they have already adopted the dog out...and didn't want to admit thier mistake. Hopeing your friend would give up and back off. Understanding people is like a PUZZLE.. they are all different, mentally and physically. But they are only human and unfortunately the world is full of rude ones as well as nice ones. I deal with the public allot and have learned how to deal with the weirdest.. So my advise would be.. if she still wants the dog.. go back to the place... and ask to talk to the owner/mgr and explain that the dog is going to be kept inside and outside..depending on the weather etc... be as nice as you can... I learned when some one is getting rude... be nicer..then at the END tell them to have a nice day.. it tee's them off worse than gettting rude back. When worse comes to worse try it. But first... priorities... if she wants the dog...go for it... explain there were alot of miss understands and you want to straighten them out. GOOD LUCK... and I won't say have a nice day.. ha ha ha
No there aren't any other rescue groups for Dobermans in our area. But she ended up buying a puppy for the same price as adopting. She was going to pay 225 to adopt Carlie, she bought her new puppy for 250. The rescue pretty much told her that they would let her adopt any dog because it would be outside for half of the day. She is very happy with her new puppy named Belle. Super cute pup.
