LOL well yes, I would have to agree with what the majority is saying here. If you are adopting something that you know is sick, asking to take responsibilty, giving one to a friend probably isn't the smartest thing to do. I WOULD want to adopt an animal that is all messed up. It is really appearing to me that you want these for the cash value whether speaking of breeding or selling them. Someone who really loves herps would want to adopt an animal even more then regular if they were injured or unhealthy, because knowing we can make the herps life a better one is what we are in this for. Any herper, a responsible loving one at that, wouldn't care whether they got just one of the beardies or two, what is important here is getting them out of the hands of a irresponsible owner and back into flawless shape, to the best of our ability anyhow. It is this kind of thing that gives us younger then 18s' a bad name. Also please take time to spell out the words properly and take it easy on the ".....", it gets annoying and confusing after a while. There is my two cents...

Most reptiles for adoption ARE 'messed up' somehow. They aren't in the best of health, and in the best condition. Rescuers screen their buyers.

You wouldn't be adopting a healthy wonderful animal here. You'd be adopting something that needed lots of care, and probably vetrinary attention ASAP.

People adopting animals, and who DON'T just want a free animal, know what they are getting into. You just wanted free animals...

There is a post in the general forum here about reptile rescues. I suggest you read what the people say in that thread, and you may discover why you didn't wind up with those beardies.

Paul,

If you expect to find perfectly healthy reptiles as rescues then what the heck are breeders and pets shops for??? I remember seeing the ad offering the dragons for adoption and it was mentionned in it that one was missing a tail and the other was stunted. They may be healthy in other respects but already you know that they aren't 100% even before contacting this person.

Now you say you didn't want the second because it didn't look healthy enough for your taste, but it's okay for your friend. I find that a bit suspicious! You want to adopt healthy herps and if they aren't give them to your friend?

Animals up for adoption are usually so for a reason. They have a need for special care, often vet care needed, the animals may be aggressive, etc.

And by curiosity, if money was not an issue, why the big deal over 20$ or not getting the tank if you were just taking one?

I'm not writing this to come down on you, you posted this thread asking for opinions and that's what I'm doing.

I agree with pretty much everyone... while the person was rude and unprofessional, she was right in not giving you the beardies. Whether or not you are prepared to care for them, you didn't seem so in your messages.

You know what, buddy? It seemed a LOT like you were screwing around with the deal. She jsut wanted the best possible home for the dragons, it seemed. You did NOT seem like you knew what you were doing. They were obviously looking for a good home for some injured dragons, for an experienced person who can look after them and make them as happy as possible. Was she SELLING, or GIVING AWAY? if it was the latter, then she was NOT unproffesional (where is the proffesion there?), and she was completely right not to give them away to someone who she did not trust with the dragons.

Also no offense, but talking in slang as you did when speaking to her does not at all help in her views of the person you are. Language is a key factor in peoples representation of you.

Yes I agree Gino. I have may more tolerance for people who make an effort to type correctly and not make too many glaring spelling/ grammer mistakes, and PUNCTUATE.

Nouse - she claims to run a rescue. And whether she has a profession or not, it's still important to be civil and professional when talking to people. When she was saying things like "Well me and my husband just decided not to, bye have a nice life" and typing in CAPS, that was a little immature. A more professional attitude would have been something like "Sorry, but you don't seem old or competant enough to take care of these. You keep changing the arrangement, and I am really not sure if you can correctly take care of these animals. Sorry, perhaps you should look into purchasing a healthy one."
Type of thing.

Oh, I must have missed the rescue part... I thought it was someone who just hatched a few unhealthy dragons, and wanted someone to take good care of them... Sorry, It came out wrong... I didn't mean that she could act like a total jerk and still be in the right, I meant that it was her decision that if she didnt feel comfortable giving them to you... Then "the customer is always right" kinda rule dosn't apply... Whatver, I think you guys get the point

ok here is my view of what i said, yes i am really sorry, i was rude, however that is not the just of the story here. there was more to that story by phone. I didnt hatch out those dragons, i rescued them and i wanted to find a home for them. I was unprofessional in what i said, i was a little upset about this guy. and when i stated kid, i meant it as he was being immature.

and fanmaninacan, you had no right to post my name. and you certainly didnt have the right to post our convo.

1st don't take this personally, though it may be hard. I think you were ignorant in doing this. Not stupid ignorant I hope everyone here knows the difrience. Now your trying to adopt something, if there was't something wrong with it then it would't be up for adoption. Think, then you get madd becuase after you said you would't adopt it she thought you were trying to scam her, and it did sound that way. If you can go but your own then go do it, becuase it is obvios you did't want to adopt the animal to save it but to get a free animal.
