Our dog recently passed away unexpectedly and we decided to adopt another dog. It was important to us to rescue a dog because there are so many pit bulls in shelters and rescues that are in desperate need of a chance at a good life. We were going to provide an exceptional home for whatever dog we ended up with. They are like our children. We were going through the Buster Foundation and found the perfect dog. The day that we were suppose to have a home check and possibly keep him if all went well they canceled on us. Instead we drove an hour away to go meet him and introduce our two other dogs to him. He was perfect and all of the dogs got along very well. He was exactly what we were looking for. We still had to have our home check done and the earliest date was a few days from then according to their schedules. We got out the crate they asked us for and took off work and my volunteer shift that day. Everything in the house was ready for the new dog. The day after our meeting with him they called and told me that their foster family decided they wanted to keep him. Now they have had him for over two months and when someone show interest in him they all of a sudden want to keep him. That is not how you run a rescue. The ultimate goal is to find good quality homes for the dogs. Adopting out pit bulls is a tough slow process. We know and love the breed and to take away that dogs chance at a good home is just ridiculous. We were broken hearted. She tried to tell us about some other dogs they had but we already looked through all of them and we picked this dog for a reason. Needless to say we will be going through a different rescue. -Esko/Theresa
