I've been patiently waiting to adopt a dog named Rocky from a GSD Rescue since the end of January. I met Rocky on the 17th of February, and the rescue allowed my family and I to wait until March to adopt Rocky. Reason for this was because my father, who is a basketball coach and teacher, has his last basketball game in March and wanted to be around with more free time for when Rocky came to the house. We would have had a yard check weeks ago, but our fence was 4.5 when they required minimum 5 feet. We arranged to try to get it changed, but it was too much money... so the rescue gave in and allowed us to keep our fence as long as we never let Rocky loose out back alone. That was amazing news for us. And we definitely agreed to not allow that to happen, as we don't believe in letting our dogs loose in the backyard without our supervision anyhow.
So, we would have finally had our house check last weekend, but something came up and we had to reschedule AGAIN for this weekend. Well, now we have the dining room of our house getting worked on (new carpet, new drywall due to a leak which damaged a corner of our wall causing signs of mold) and so the dining room table and hutch were moved into the living room. And the process of this won't be done until Monday. I don't want to postpone AGAIN. But could this potentially ruin my chances of adopting Rocky? If the lady walks in and sees the dining room closed off with no carpet, a section of the wall getting replaced, living room looking like a cluttered catastrophe? I have a feeling she might be scared off thinking "Oh, I haven't seen the house when everything is back in place... I don't know if this would be a good situation for Rocky..." Maybe I'm over analyzing. Thing is, we wouldn't pick Rocky up anyhow until the process was over on Monday... I just wanted her to see where we lived, see the back yard, and sign the contract as well as pay the adoption fee.
Any feedback would be appreciated. I'm just extremely nervous as I don't want ANYTHING to go wrong because this dog would mean everything to me. Thanks.
