This apartment is only temporary too- I will be 100% moving out into my own home in a couple years, when house prices start going down a bit.
I don't think it means anything other than that you haven't found the right dog yet. I fell in love with my foster, but she wasn't a good fit. I'm still upset that I gave her up. It sucked. I wanted to keep her forever, and she felt the same. She was such an easy dog.

I inquired with several other breeders, no response, no response, and then the one who responded was an asshat to me. I stopped looking at Dobermans and inquired with Moxie Collies. I ended up basically on the wait list for a Collie puppy, and my breeder called me out of nowhere saying Sizzle referred her to me, and she had a girl puppy who needed a home at 12wks. Everything just felt right, and I was certain about my decision. She's also the best dog I've ever lived with. Once things were right, it all fell into place. The wait sucked, though.

You were certainly the best person for Roxie.You didn't fail her, and you never have. You tried your best to with her, and that's what is important. You put so much time, and dedication into her, so much more than most people would ever do. Please don't beat yourself up over this.

As pinkspore offers me a potentially perfect sports dog from a friend for my situation who is an ACD mix, and it dawns upon me a few minutes after receiving the message that my dang apartment has ACD's and ACD mixes on the restricted breeds list.

Which makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, because Border Collies and Malinois are ALLOWED. (LOL...)

My apartment policy has the craziest breeds that are restricted- some of the weirdest include Salukis, Afghan Hounds, Keeshonds (?!?!), Elkhounds (?!?!?!), Foxhounds (?!??!?!?!?!?!), and Australian Cattle Dogs.

I read this last night and obviously had just enough to drink that written word became hard for me to understand. I thought the "my breeder called me..." bit referred back to Moxie Collies, and not the dobe breeder, so when I saw your pictures of Starbucks, I was super confused for a minute. Then i realized i just am terrible at reading for comprehension.

They aren't super uncommon to be on breed bans. Dog and human aggression can sadly be common.

I'm dogsitting for a couple of cattledogs I adore. I have a cattledog foster. I have a Brisbane. After a busy day I wanted to get all four some running time so we quietly crept into the park and played ball in the tennis court by the light of the full moon. The tennis court backs up to people's yards and is mere feet from houses. Despite being varying degrees of reactive, all four dogs were dead silent. They didn't even bark at the dogs that came right up to the fence to meet them.

"It's ok, my dogs are friendly!"
"Mine aren't. That's why we're playing ball in the tennis court at 11pm."
