I've been searching for over 3 months to add a puppy to my family. I m slowly losing hope that I will get one . I've applied at 20+ shelters/rescues all getting denied because I have a one year old I get that it's for liability reasons but if I'm adopting a dog younger then 3 months it can be worked on with my son and the dog. They say I meet all other criteria except that . Anyone else ran into this issue and have any advice?
