Peppy, I’ve seen things like that first hand. It really is too bad since there are many people who will make great owners, but I understand that weeding the bad ones out is a priority.

My friend was looking to adopt a puppy and needed two references. They tried to call one of the references (my boss) and he wasn’t answering, so this guy asked if I could be the other reference and I said sure. The woman called and kept asking if my friends were going to have a baby soon and if I thought they would give the dog after they had a baby, etc. I was really confused since as far as I knew they didn’t plan to have kids ever, so I wasn’t sure why she pushed this. When I got off the phone I told my friend and he talked to her – apparently his first reference had said that they wanted a puppy to prepare for having a baby. It wasn’t true at all and I think the guy was biased since he had a baby about 2 weeks earlier (babies on the brain!) but it really freaked the rescue lady out and she almost didn’t let them have the puppy. The whole thing was kind of ridiculous and I’m glad my friend could clear it up, but if one thing that one reference says casually can keep you from getting the dog (as opposed to all of the great things that you, the future owner, shares with the rescue) then there’s a problem.
