You're not helping me avoid tempation, LOL! Honestly though, I have to wonder if it's meant to be too. I went to a shelter on my last birthday and left there with Chica, who then pre-alerted to an allergic reaction, and is now in training as my Medical Alert Service Dog. What are the odds of something like that happening?! In other words, I believe that for those of us with hearts for animals, we are brought together with those who are meant to be ours.

My main concern though, if I call and do get the same answer from animal control as before, but yet move forward with this anyway...the biggest concern(s) are my neighbors. I have some great ones and some not so great ones, and the ones in that last category are just the type to call us in/report us to animal control. I know, because they've called on other people in the neighborhood before...and on petty, ridiculous crap too. They're just unfortunately the kind of people who love stirring up trouble/creating drama. So I'm afraid of what they might do, and what the ramifications could be. I'm still going to call AC though, to see if I get a different answer than before, since I've oftentimes found that to be the case when dealing with govermental agencies. :P

That's what I think too...that it should be about whether or not you can provide a good home and love, not about some random number. For goodness sakes, in our city you can have 3 Saint Bernards, but yet our 3 total add up to like 23 lbs! I could also have 5 cats if I wanted (however I am severely allergic to cats, so that's not an option) but heaven forbid if we should adopt just 1 more chi, so that we have 2 sets of best buddy pairs! As mentioned in one of my previous replies, I wouldn't even be worried if it weren't for some of my neighbors. I've heard, through the neighborhood grapevine, how some have called animal control on eachother, and over ridiculous stuff too, not actual valid concern for animal welfare...so that potential problem really scares me, as I'm not sure what happens if you get caught. Do they make you give up one of your furkids?!! I would NEVER allow that to happen!!!

Is there another address you could register a dog at? It could just be "visiting".

I can't even browse adoption sites anymore. I probably would've snatched this girl up without thinking it through!
I definitely agree that exceptions should be made if people are responsible, and also considering that all 3 of our dogs each weigh 8 lbs or less! We could own 3 Great Danes, but not 4 toy breed dogs? That just doesn't make sense! If it weren't for some of my drama loving neighbors (see my previous replies for more on that), I wouldn't hesitate one bit. I'm hoping that, when I call again here in a bit, I'll find out about some sort of legal loophole the last animal control officer I spoke with maybe didn't know about. The lady was really nice about it when I called yesterday though, saying she wishes more people would call in wanting to adopt another shelter dog.

I'd be afraid to go that far (only because of some of our nosy, love to stir-up-trouble neighbors) but I like the way you both think! Our dogs don't cause problems around here...ie I clean up/bag their poo right away, and they don't bark much compared to some others in the neighborhood, but one of our neighbors (who has called AC on at least one family around here, that I know of) definitely doesn't like small dogs and has snidely commented before that he can't believe we have 3 of them. I'm just afraid that if he called and AC came out, what happens then?

It would upset me seeing a woman ask if she "is housebroke", too. Obviously and dog you adopt is going to need some potty training, if you're not going to read/watch/etc up on adopting dogs at least, then you probably shouldn't be getting one.

I would probably ask a family member if they would register her under their name and address... not sure how you'd feel about that though. So sorry you can't keep her
Edit: Sorry! Just read that, lol
