I considered...

I considered adopting a dog...

This is the dog I did not adopt...
Reasons why:
  1. He refused to play with me... he only looked out the window waiting for the assistant at the shelter to come back.  He had complete disregard for me.
  2. I took him outside to see if this would change his demeanor towards me.  Not the case.  He stood at the gate attempting to push his little nose through and waited for the assistant to come back and get him.
  3. I had a handful of treats; hoping this might help.  This was not the case.  He stood up on his hind legs to gently take a treat from my hand and immediately dropped it with disinterest and disregard. 
I thought about him for the rest of the afternoon.   I checked the shelter website again, thinking if he was still there I'd go back for him.

He was gone.  Here's trusting this little man got adopted to a good home with someone he made a connection with.
