    He has been adopted already, good for him.

    Does anyone know how long it usually takes to get a dog through a resuce group. I am looking for a little dog, say under 25lbs, I am not to fussy about the breed so long as good temperment and such are there, and he must be able to be alone (well with Abbey) while we work, and he has to to be friendly with Abbey and the kids. It just seems that I have been waiting for so long, and once one fits this description, he is gone in a matter of hours, and I am not called alhtough I have applications on file. I am going to keep trying, but it is a bit discouraging. Could it be possible that they think I am not a good canidate? Or maybe it is cause of the kids. Most rescue groups prefer not to adopt out small dogs to people who work and have kids.

    Is there one rescue you are trying to go through? Maybe calling once a week rather than just checking their website would get better results? Or you could be right and they are being snobby about adopting to you.

    I have applications on file with a few rescee groups in the Toronto area. They checked out my references etc, and to my knowledge all went well. I was told thet when they have a dog that they feel is a good match, they will contact me. But they never have... I have seen on petfinder.com dogs that from the brief description appear to match my lifestyle and are listed through these specific groups, but of course they personally know the dogs as I do not. I will be patient and keep waiting. I will also do as you suggested Jamiya, I wil start calling weekly or bi weekly, there may be dogs that do not make it on petfinder.com, as they go fast sometimes.

    Thanks, and of course if anything happens I will let you all know about it!

    Do you contact them when you see a good match on petfinder? Because if your name is just one in a stack of applications it may be moving down to the bottom of the pile! Calling every week or so will help with that as well by keeping your name fresh in their minds and having them realize you REALLY want a dog. :)
