“In August of 2015 we filled out an adoption form before we found a dog.
The adoption counselor interviewed us for an hour and was careful to ask questions that would match us with a suitable puppy.
She asked specific questions regarding temperament, breed, color, size and about our personal activities, as well as how much time we were willing to invest in the puppy, and how much time we would be spending at home.
She said there was a litter of puppies coming up from Virginia.”
“I thought New York City was a difficult place to raise a dog, so we wanted a smallish dog.
I would get into bed and go on Pet Finder on my phone at 11:00 at night, and look for New York rescue puppies.
Initially, I looked at Labrador Retriever rescues, but I spoke to someone at Unleashed NYC, the rescue group, and she had adopted two dogs from Unleashed, NYC and had a great experience.
