Rescues aren’t answering applications. I’ve filled out at least seven or eight. Wrote long letter to accompany them...nothing.... Golden Heart won’t even let you put an application in! They say come back after COVID. Everyone is clambering for dogs thanks to COVID.Foster a senior. There are never enough homes for an elderly dog. If you foster, all vet expenses are paid by the rescue group. Then you can look for a breeder in a calm, relaxed way and take time to find the right dog.
