Sorry, LadyDreamer. That wasn't directed at you...or anyone in particular. I just felt that some of the responses I got were treating me like a child who had a toy taken away and is now throwing a temper tantrum, which couldn't be farther from the truth. Not throwing a temper tantrum or even threatening to. Just trying to find out if this is something rescues do on a regular basis...which it seems like they do.

The fact is that until contracts are signed and payment has been made, nothing is official and the animal in question is still available for adoption by the first person to complete the process - which was not you.
I am not meaning to be snarky. Sorry. Just upset and not feeling well.
I guess my point is that the rescue didn't even give us a chance. We completed everything but meeting the lady from the rescue, but I'd think that if you had someone willing to drive FOUR HOURS just to meet the dog, you'd give them a chance. I know our humane society will hold a dog if you've filled out an application for the dog and just need to set up a time to do a meet and greet with your dog. They've done it for me before with a jack russell (that ended up not liking my dog).
