Default How often are you on Petfinder?

Spin off from the Petfinder want thread.

How often are you on there? Are you actually looking for dogs? If not, do you find it hard to resist? If so do you apply for every dog you like?

I try not to get on very often because I don't need any more dogs in my life right now. And I'm always looking at ACDs and being sad I can't help them. Occasionally I will venture to the WPG breeds, but none are legit or they don't want them to be gundogs, so meh, nothing ever becomes of it.

I'm not looking for another dog. I don't find it hard to resist because of lack of time.

Rarely. But I'm on a few different Facebook groups that rehome dogs (show dogs, or ACDs) and I look at some of the dogs that are posted sometimes. I can't have another dog right now so it's not that hard to resist (although I may have gotten a Saluki if I could have ).

Maybe once or twice a week. More if I'm bored.

Awesome, thanks for making new threads!!

How often are you on there?
About 3 times a month, I'd say?

Are you actually looking for dogs?
Nope.

If not, do you find it hard to resist?
I want to say yes, but the honest answer is no, not really. When I'm on Petfinder I'm not really invested in the dog itself or finding one, plus I am (was) set on the kind of dog I want and the type of breeder it would come from. It'd take a lot for a specific dog to appeal to me over the internet, however descriptive the bio is. I'll pine and whine and share the link, but in the end I don't actually have a real desire to apply for the dog.

Cats, on the other hand, are harder for me to resist. It's just SO EASY adding in a cat to the household

I'd say like once a week or once every 2 weeks I get a bug up my butt to go look. No particular reason. I'm not really in the market for another dog especially since my mom just got her cockapoo pup and I live there, so now with 2 dogs in the house, another isn't feasible right now anyway. Not to mention, I'm almost certain my next dog will come from a breeder.

I guess I just like to look and browse just in case I come across a dream dog or something.

Oh... as usual I only answered part of the questions.

I'm not seriously looking. And I don't find it hard to resist, because I really can't have another dog right now.

I would say in the last month or 2, I go on a couple times a week. Before that, I never went on there. I was helping my sister look for a dog so that's kind of what made me start looking on there... and now I like to look for dogs that would appeal to me I'm definitely not in the market for another dog right now, and I usually don't find them too tempting HOWEVER there is one dog who I've been coming back to for the last few weeks who I really, really wish I could take.

Mostly Petfinder just makes me really, really want to buy a house RIGHT NOW.

I don't do Petfinder very often anymore but I'm on a sheltie classifieds list about once a week. I'm not actually looking - I mean, I am ready to add another dog but it will not be something I find in the classifieds, so why I look there, I just don't know. I do it under the excuse of looking for my sister. I don't apply or inquire about anything because I don't actually find anything I want pretty much ever. Only once did I find a dog I really, really wanted, and I just couldn't since I already know about the next one, so...

At lease twice a week

Are you actually looking for dogs?

No, not really, but, I wish I was! I'll admit- Sometimes I pretend I actually am looking fur a dog.

If not, do you find it hard to resist?
Due to still living with my parents-No. I know it won't be able to happen. So, I don't even bother getting that far.

However, if I lived on my own?
It would be much different. I probably try to get a every dog on petfinder that appeals to me.

I look once every few weeks, probably. I can't have another dog right now so it's never serious, just browsing. My next dog is going to be from a breeder anyway. I still look though... couldn't tell you why.
