The talk show hostess and her partner Portia de Rossi adopted Iggy, a Brussels Griffon mix, on Sept. 20. But when things didn't work out, DeGeneres gave the dog to her hairdresser. In doing so, DeGeneres violated an agreement with the Mutts and Moms agency by not informing them of the handoff. When the agency called DeGeneres to ask about Iggy, she said she found another home for the dog. The agency sent a representative to the hairdresser's home Sunday and took the dog away. This is ludicrous!!!! One of the things I hate about a lot of pet rescue organizations. But of course, they also do great things.. all of my own pets are rescues.. But then you have a lot of fruitcakes involved too.. a lot of lonely old neurotic women with extreme control issues. I understand the group wants to know where the dog is going if its new situation doesn't work out.... but in this case,, to come confiscate the dog like its Elian Gonzalez,, after it's bonded with its new family, and obviously Ellen D didn't just give it away to any old bum on the street.. and things seem to be working out? Ridiculous. Maybe this group has a really good reason for saying 'no' to this family.. but I doubt it. I bet they are just being dog rescue nazis about it. In many situations it seems the rescue people would rather see the dog stay in 'indefinite' foster care, until they can find the absolute perfect home... which doesn't exist! thoughts...???
