Im trying to get some views (not animally related) to something that happened on Friday.And possibly warn anyone going through the adoption process that your choice of dog could put the process in jeopardy.
Thought Id share an experience I had a couple of days ago.
We`re currently in the process of adopting a child who we`ve been fostering for the last 5 years and on Friday a social worker called to the house for a chat--they call every 3-6 months or so to follow up on how the kids doing.
Anyway when she arrived at the door our dog Holly (Golden Labrador) barked as she always does anytime theres a knock on the door.
Well this social worker had a freaker...she runs out to the car and brings back in the restricted breeds list and starts ranting on that if our dog was one of the listed breeds then it would jepordize the adoption process.
It took a lot of explaining that it was a Labrador and even if it was on the dangerous breeds list I would never leave kids unsupervised with any dog.
Anyone ever hear of anything like this.Im sickened by her attitude and honestly even though its only a Lab we have we have been looking at possibly getting a Rottie in the next year or so.
How can these people get away with telling responsible owners what breed of dog they can or cannot own.
Ive cross posted this in the adoption forum just to get their views on it aswell.
