Thanks everyone!! Tar Heel Mom, I do feel a bit better after reading your response. I had Dakota spayed at between 6-8 months of age (gosh it was so long ago I can't recall when!) but the rescue did work with me on a time frame. It was private though. The SPCA here seems pretty adamant about a spay NOW, which I certainly DO understand, since they don't know me from the next person. I will definitely see if I can at least argue for an extra week or two to get her healthy again. I figure its a war that should be fought one battle at a time, especially for such a young dog.

Jean, I think I will definitely do that!!! Its MY home she will be in, so whatever the extra cost it will be worth it for my peace of mind.

Stosh, I thought I had read something about that.




As far as approximate age...what do you all think?
