my First Go-see

Postby aznchipmunk » Thu Apr 23, 2009 12:11 pm

Howdy everyone, Sunday i'm going to my (hopefully future) dog's foster home to meet her. Essentially my go-see. Then if we are compatible she and i will become a pair. This is my first rescue. (and i dont want to act like a noob/offend anyone/step on toes)

My question(s) - proper ettiquette, what to look out for, what to avoid, are there certain manners that i should follow, questions i should ask? ( i have a list of questions but i'd like to get feedback on what the experts think)

i'm also old fashioned. i wanted to take a bag of treats to give to the foster family for the other dogs (i unerstand its a farm, and she rescues/fosters a lot of dogs) - good idea? bad idea?

She's from a reputable bully rescue here in VA, and the coordinator i've been in contact with is a real GEM. she's just been awesome. She's coming as well to the go-see.

Thanks for your time everyone!

But don't ignore your instincts either, if you get a bad feeling about a dog.

I love it when adopters bring us stuff. Even old towels or blankets. It shows they care, you know?
Just love the dog up. Even if the dog just ran through a mud puddle, love it up LOTS lol
If there's other dogs present, don't push them off, hopefully they'll put up the others but if the others are out, love them up too.
That's about all I got :dunno:

Ah she's really pretty! She has that same look my Lily had when I first got her. I hope the trial period goes well and that she fits in.
