Dog adoption (old member)


I used to be part of this community about 10 years ago, looks like its not as busy as it once was but maybe I can still find some info here.

Our 13 year old GSD Jermy, has sadly passed away. We are looking for a dog to join our family but looks like now a days its not so simple.

I was hoping to adopt a rescue but any time i find a dog that fits us (3 and under, good with kids, cats and dogs, shorthair) there are so many people that apply that we get either no response or a try again another time kind of response.

I contacted several reputable breeders and even they didnt even bother to answer as they have 1-2 year waiting lists (some even closed waiting lists) and the prices have just skyrocketed.

I am not sure what my next steps should be. Our home has a void, but i refuse to support puppy mills and i want to make sure the dog will be the right fit for us....
