I also found Roust's sister Blossom that Emily is fostering through a petfinder link a friend posted on FB. This was one of her Petfinder pictures, the first I saw. Have you ever seen a more hopeful looking pup?

There's an obvious family resemblance here...

I agree on the no response thing being soooo annoying! I really dislike that!

I will say, after inquiring into the gorgeous R&W sibe girl Romy posted to me... they were wonderful to talk to at that rescue. Responded right away and while they don't adopt out of state, they proceeded to point me toward EWSR (whom I'd also inquired about a dog quite a few years back before getting Scout and they were very nice, but she wasn't okay with cats so no dice!) and one of their foster mom's went out of her way to pop in and give me a glowing recommendation as to the reputability of SWSR. I am impressed! Next sled dog may well be from them. But fuzzy stick dog first!!!
Though this Lily/Scout dog is ZOMG: http://www.ewsr.org/ladybugsusan/ladybug.htm
And yes that girls description is typical of what I live with, lol. Someone here should get her!

My friend's RR is my fault and was found via petfinder.
I showed her the page and we went in to see how much like her Lab/RR mix boy he was... um yeah we left with a hound puppy. When I saw him Sunday night he sat his bony hound butt on my shoulder because he's happy and very impertinent!

I found Bamm on petfinder. I kept staring at his pictures for about a week before I finally contacted about him. Went to meet him and he acted like he had known me forever. It was sort of a love at first sight thing. Ended up taking him home that day.

Never heard of that rescue! And here I thought I had exhausted all my fluffy butt rescue options. Also didn't know you were just the next state over!

I have adopted two dogs who were listed on Petfinder, but I met one on a shelter visit and the other is his brother, who I got a year later. Both were/are just here for training. I also have one CL dog, one dog that was given to us, and one dog from a rescue.

I've never gotten a pet from petfinder, but I have directed others to the site and a couple of them ended up with a pup from there. I've got a craigslist cat, an Uncle Henry's dog and two Uncle Henry's gerbils!
