Review for Vegas Shepherd Rescue, Las Vegas, NV, USA
Been in contact with the rescue since early November, got application submitted and the house visit performed, everything good to go, just needed to find the perfect new family member. The criteria we were looking for was 6 months to around a year old. During our wait the rescue cam across a litter of puppies and offered one to us. We were very interested, just had to wait till they were 8 weeks old before we could choose they one being welcomed into our family. Time finally came, I jumped through hoops to make it happen on their time schedule, met with them and picked the one that would be coming to our home and then they got a bit crazy.
The day after we picked I decided to email them and find out the timeline on when they are bringing the puppy by, that's when we found out they "observed" something that didn't make them happy and they suddenly believe a GSD was not a good fit for us. Our family was very crushed at this time, and would like to know what was observed. No comments, they would not call me, and Tammy the cofounder said I should find a backyard breeder who doesn't care about the health of their dogs. What kind of Rescue organization is this? If there are legitimate concerns, and they cared about the breed and people, they would voice their concerns.
A little bit about me. Grew up with this breed of dog, have had 4 of them in my life. I'm not a first time dog owner. I actually believed in Rescues prior to this, and now I can only hope people don't buy into their stupidity.
Attached is an email between me and the rescue, one of their vague replies of not saying much and a pic of my daughter the puppy we thought was becoming our new family member.
We were one of the first to pic, I have a feeling that someone later on wanted the pup we picked and offered a sizable donation at my families expense. I don't suggest anyone do business with them till Tammy and Genie and no longer involved with this rescue organization
