I would like to try to find either siblings from our litter or any other TM owners from Flash Point Ranch, Temecula CA. Laurel and Marc Denk. Would love to hear from you. My girl was whelped on January 15th 2014.
This is why people would rather buy from a breeder then adopting. I get why they do what they have to do. They have to place them in a right home, but in GENERAL this nonsense has to stop. I know that there are people here that dont do their research and due diligence, but I believe the adoption agencies are their own worst enemy.Good info, it is making me think twice on this breed.They put me through hell to adopt her--So many papers & backround checks & vet references & personal references stating my experience with mastiffs & giant breeds. Pics of my house, my fence, agreed to home inspection...It was like applying for a freakin mortgage...I still had an in person interview/$#@!essment I had to do after all of that, & it was a 6.5 hour drive...Then they turned me down before the interview for someone local...I was told she was adopted. I was sick to my stomach for days.I had a feeling in my gut about Tessa. I called back after she was adopted to tell them that if she was returned for ANY reason at ANY time or age to please let me come in for the interview. It was a 6.5 hour drive.The administrator informed me she cancelled Tessa's adoption because she did not feel right about how the family interacted with her, she said it was a last second decision, she just couldn't do it & she had placed Tessa back in her foster home. She agreed to meet me, but made no guarantees on Tessa's adoption. I sold myself as best I could before she decided to cancel again, & made the trip the day before Easter last year. I was sick to my stomach the whole way there. All of that ended the second I saw Tessa in person & picked her up. They even called the foster parents for me & arranged a meeting & we drove there to meet them & speak with them about Tessa & they got a final good bye.
