That's a fantastic post! Thank you so much for all the information @meloncollie

We weren't aware of the Dark Side, but instinctively knew the importance of working with a reputable agency. That's one of the biggest reasons to ask here, and why googling made me a little nervous.

How does it work generally when the dogs listed are in other countries? Does everyone interested register their interest and then the process starts when they arrive in Switzerland? Or are people somehow expected to make a commitment to adopt before they bring the dog here? It must be cheaper to care for them elsewhere, so presumably they only import them once they know they will find a home.

You're right, I'm British, and it's hard to picture how it works compared with a system that has so many animals needing cared for.
