I used to do home checks for GSRNE and AUssie rescue.

Havery has given their good experience..

I would definitely want to check out the potential adopters home. Where will the dog be kept when they are home/not home? Do they take vacations? where does the dog go? Is the yard fenced? Do they have alot of company/little kids running around?

Are they willing to take the dog to obedience classes if needed?

I would want to speak to their vet, if they don't have one who will they use? Are they prepared to spend alot of money should a medical emergency should arise?

MY approach was always, would I myself, place one of MY dogs in the persons home.
