    i've mostly owned large dogs but i wanted a MELLO, medium sized, adult female. i thought i could find one pretty easily. nope!

    about 75% of the dogs in the local county run shelters are chiwawas or pit bulls and pit bull mixes. it's like the pit bulls went on a raping spree with a bunch of other breeds. i'm not interested in these kind of dogs. the same with craigs list, lots of chiwawas and pits.

    the animal rescue groups pretty much want to know more about me than is any of their fucking business and most want to wander through my home to make sure i'm acceptable to be a forever home. :jj:

    i'm annoyed. the papers have plenty of puppies but not many adult dogs.

    any suggestions? i want to love something that doesn't know how to use my debit card! :)

    Pit bull owners are generally too trashy to get their pets fixed (that's why there are so many of them), and their owners typically end up going to jail at some point (that's why there are so many in the pound).

    How about check out Animal Care and Control as they do euthanize...so you'd be saving a life.

    Though they have a lot of pits, too

    i don't have anything in mind. a pure breed or mix is fine. i just want an adult, older would be good, that is mello and when i say go for a walk?? it looks at me, wags it's tail and goes back to sleep.

    i've mostly owned aggressive males and i thought a nice sweet female would be good for a change.

    that poor baby.

    i'm way to shallow to get a dog that looks like that. i'm not interested in getting a dog that already has some serious issues either.

    i want it to be cute enough to help me with women. :)

    Just keep an eye out in shelters and the places you've looked. Don't rush it. The bitch of your dreams will one day be waiting for you.

    You might want to try www.petfinder.com. You can specify what type of dog you want and narrow it down to a certain distance from your location. It will search shelters and rescues and give you a list of dogs that meet your criteria. Some do require fees and background checks but others don't - it's usually specified in the details for each dog. That's how I found my current dog, he's the best one I've ever had and exactly what I was looking for.

    i joined a place called allpaws.com. they have a good selection but most or all are through the home shelter type folks.

    i want to give a good home to a dog and they want to know what i had for breakfast. :fuckyou:

    I have a Shih Tzu that is a dead ringer for an Ewok from Star Wars.

    It will antagonize the cat until the cat gets pissed. Then runs away yelping for help!

    "Yipe yipe yipe, the cat is gonna kill me, HELP!"

    Get a cat at the same time. Call up NASL and have Beth deliver it to you.
