Hello everyone! I am interested in adopting a dog I had a thread earlier about what dog breed to look into but decided I would rather adopt, I have a few friends who have adopted dogs and all of them had horrible experiences. They each have a good dogs but apparently the adoption process was invasive and generally extremely unpleasant. So I am just curious what other people's experiences are and what to expect throughout the adoption process and when to begin the process. I don't want to declare its a miserable process but I mean we are moving to an apartment on a 100 acre lot with lots of trails and I just anticipate an adoption agency making it particularly miserable to adopt a higher energy dog even though we are a very active couple.
