While our rescue doesn't operate this way (we actually transport puppies to a couple of shelters in the NE, and people adopt there after meeting them - actually have to bring their dogs as well if they have any already), I do know of several rescues that do this regularly, and all that I have heard about seem to do very well.

Congratulations on finding what you were looking for!

We recently adopted from our local SPCA. We chose the dog from Petfinder. There was a LOT of paperwork, DH was irritated about the process and how they could make it easier "since they practically BEG people to adopt."

I didn't think the process was unduly arduous. They are just trying to make sure the dog gets a forever home.

Abby was in foster at the time. We met her at the SPCA. They were running a Foster Adoption Special, we chose our own price! She did have some potty issues initially. but we straightened it out.

Here is Abby, the Christmas Dog, she's an awesome love bug. A 55 LB lap dog!

Congratulations! Which rescue did you end up going with? A local fb friend just got her Southern puppy on Monday and so far things are going well.

Don't forget to post pictures!

We ended up going with Shih Tzu and Precious Paws Rescue, the woman was a doll! I will definitely post pics as soon as he gets settled.

Another Update

So we picked up our little guy on Sunday (the transport co. was a day behind). He's just the cutest (if I do say so myself) and is doing amazingly well so far! He seemed to settle in right from the get go and we just love him to death..

Here's a picture of our little "Kobe":
