No Size & Breed Restrictions

After two months of searching via the internet I finally found a community that is leasing and renting homes out without a size or breed restriction. When they sent me a message that they have no size or breed restrictions and of how many pets you can bring, I was literally doing a happy dance. Their leasing company is already approved via Housing and I found them actually via AHRN. I truly consider myself lucky. Anything and everything else was either a Scam from somebody travelling outside the States to go searching for oil in Africa (yeah right) to brokers in London. At one point I was wondering if Watertown had any residents left at all because everybody seemed to go to Africa or London. Or I ran into size restrictions of 50lbs or Shepherds were denied along with Rottweilers, Dobermans and Pitt Bulls.

All we have to do is to fill in the application and get approved by them. Hopefully we don’t run into problems as in “No places available.” That would suck.

I also got some more info about shipping the dogs. Holy Shemoly. Shipping them all three together will cost us around 1800 Euros. The problem is that Yukon can’t be shipped to the next closest airport because of the kennel size. The cheapest way would be to ship them all at once but I’d have to pick between NEWARK and JFK. I was told by several people that it’s going to be a “lot of fun” to drive to either one of them airports to pick them up, especially during wintertime but if I had to pick one, NEWARK would be the better choice.

Next week our household goods will be picked up and then I’ll be without a computer, TV, Car… pretty much anything.

Zenzy is already with my parents, Yukon, Indra will join her in a little while too.
We have not heard anything from the embassy yet and I don’t even know how they’ll contact us. Will they send a letter? Give us a call? Send an email? I assume they’ll send a letter which can take a while if they do so via the APO Box, or do they send it to the regular mailbox outside the building? I have no clue… the uncertainty is stressing me out because I don’t know if I can actually fly with hubby or if I have to stay behind. I HATE THAT! I hate when I don’t know what is going on. UUUUGH!

    As I said before, I do not know how the process works for someone applying for all of the paperwork in Germany, but here's what I do know –

    The normal process is that, once your paperwork has been received, you will be sent a receipt. This is a formal letter on “security” paper (watermarked and all that). This has a number on it that you can use online at the USCIS website to track the process of your paperwork, such as “pending approval” and “approved”.

    The paperwork should be mailed to the address you've put as your home address on the paperwork, which is most likely your regular mailbox.

    On average, you should receive a receipt within less than 90 days of submitting your paperwork. Within 30 days seems most average, although some people have found theirs has taken longer.

    Do you have a POC at the embassy where you could call and inquire about the status of your paperwork? Did they give you any kind of contact when you submitted it?
