Me and my DH are trying to adopt a dog from a rescue, we're looking for a Golden Retriever (or a Golden Retriever mix) because my DH already had one. I sent emails with application to different animal rescues and nobody is replying back. Is it possible that they reject us because we have kids? (a 4.5 years old, a 2.5 years old and a 13 months old). We applied for a puppy because I'm a stay at home mom and so there would always be somebody with him. We have a fenced backyard, a good job, vet reference...I really don't understand. We also look at local shelter but there were just pit bull and other breeds that I don't feel comfortable with. What should I do?Answer Question

It IS possible that they simply have no Goldens or Golden mixes. (they are a very popular breed and let's face it are adopted out just as soon as they are received in most cases) Have you trie this site?
