Update on Our Search for Getting a New Dog

We are still in the process of getting a new dog. We have looked at a few at the Lawrence Humane Society, with a Aussie/Border Collie rescue group, and online at PetFinder.com. While the Lawrence Humane Society was willing to adopt out the same day, we did not find a dog that was right for us. The Aussie/Border Collie rescue group had a great Border Collie named Nick but he was a bit bigger than what we wanted. And we have applied to a number of rescue groups on PetFinder but they are still reviewing our applications and so we are still waiting to hear back from them.

This process is taking longer than I thought. But in a way I am grateful. My husband related it to buying a new house. We have to look at several so that we can make sure we get the right one. And even though many of the rescue groups are taking a long time with their review process, I am glad that they are going through so much work in order to make sure their dogs get into the right family.

This weekend, we will be visiting other animal shelters in the Kansas City metro area. And hopefully we will have a chance to meet some of the dogs we put applications in for.

I will keep you posted on the progress and share lots of photos when we add a new member to our family.

    It’s good that all concerned are doing due dilligence as there’s more chance of a ‘forever home and match’ for both of you, although I do know that whoever is the lucky dog will be with you 2 forever, whatever, after choosing.
