As you know, I am searching for a male Corgi as my MaGuire went over the Bridge the end of December. This month, I was offered a male, 3 year old Tri colored Corgi about 4 hours from my area. The gal identified herself as “Corgi Rescue Foster Home” and said she and another gal, who had contacted me initially, worked together in Corgi Rescue. She has not been forthcoming with answers to my questions and her emails are sporadic. She did say I “could have him any time I wanted” and she “would get him to me”. The cost was $0.00. After asking her what procedures were in place should the Corgi not work out, she emailed saying she felt I wasn’t that interested. She also stated the foster family was considering adopting him. And she can’t get him to me after all. I emailed her advising I did want the Corgi, but was attempting to cover all my bases. I, then, emailed the original gal asking if this is the normal functioning of Rescue Groups because I was getting conflicting information. Basically, I felt I was being jerked around.
I received an email yesterday from “original gal” saying both gals use to be with Lakeshore Rescue, but aren’t anymore. Her words were - they were with it before it went south. I have no idea what she is talking about - maybe someone here does?? They have the male Corgi on their own and are trying to find a home for him. It seems he snaps at kids and needs a strong owner. This would not be me!! And it was the first time I was told any of this stuff. Grrrr!!
Is this “normal” in the dog rescue world?? Since I haven’t dealt with Rescue in the past, it’s all a learning experience for me. Any thoughts, ideas or experiences would be helpful. Thanks a bunch!!
