Okay, I wasn't going to step in and say anything...but now I have to do so...and I'll try and make it brief.
I am NOT upset about her going to you, Angie, in particular. What I am upset about it the fact that a HOME was lined up for her...a REAL, honest-to-goodness home...where she could live forever, and be adopted. That was lined up...and a foster home lined up too (me) in case the adoption fell through somehow. But she would have gone straight into an adoptive home, rather than a foster. So am I annoyed and irritated, hell yeah. But it honestly doesn't have anything to do with YOUR capabilities, or anyone else's rescue...it just plain has to do with the fact that I think it's beyond idiotic to foster when there is a home out there. A home that wanted ANOTHER (yes, their first dog was special needs) special needs dog to adopt and care for.
So...it's nothing personal to you or your fostering...or your house...or your plans for her. It has everything to do with a "I got dibs" type of behavior in rescues nowadays. Like I said, I wasn't gonna post anything...but I had to put this out in the open, and clear things up for you and everyone else.
Now I'm really done with this topic.
