I know it put me off, I had looked at the Chi rescue in Canada before I got AJ, I would have been open to adopting totally! as thats how I got my now 17 year old toy poodle waaaay back.
When I saw the policy on the small dogs I thought it was ridiculous, so I went and looked for a breeder.
I think they are defeating the purpose a bit with that silly rule. Actually its flat out discriminatory.. I debated just applying for the dog I was looking at and not disclosing anything about my kids as I didn't feel it was their business either.. when I worked in rescue we wanted vet reference.. landlord letter or personal refs.. family composition is none of their business in my books! My kids are better with animals than some adults I know!
