You have a rescue dog. The Other has a rescue dog. One of you pops the question: Does your dog bite? If the answer is "no" the foundation has been created for a possible soulmate relationship. By next Sunday, Valentine's Day, the two of you, plus your rescues, could be an item.
Unlike the bad reputation of some online dating, finding intimacy via rescue dogs has a solid reputation for wholesomeness. After all, one or both of you can't vanish into the ether. Rescues, as do all dogs, need to be walked about three times a day. So, you will be out there. The good news, of course, is that if the relationship goes sour, you can just change your walking route.
The first step in the process is to go to your local animal shelter. Open your heart to a hard-to-place dog. They include older ones. Take your time bonding with those which seem a good fit for your lifestyle. If there is a background check, you might have to wait 24 or48 hours. Then you have your ally in your search for a soulmate.
In September 2013, I adopted a five-year-old mix. Immediately, my social life got a boost. Everyone has a rescue dog story. I listened. Soon there was the magic of the kiss. And by that I don't mean the wet one from your rescue. Now rescue LOV and I have our game down to a science. In Fry's Supermarket, he sits in the child's seat and pulls 'em to our cart. One is treating me to a trip to a psychic and dinner for V Day.
