Yes - good adopters wait for whatever! GoodKarma on this board had to wait for Rosa until she was healthy enough to be spayed, and then a week after. I am guessing it was almost a month-five weeks? We made arrangements so they could see her and it worked out well - she knew them, was all set for fun.

Placing Your Own whoops link I mentioned.

Oh also - when people have GSD experience, that does not mean they have GSD experience with "oddities" in the breed - which is something we have always explained to potential adopters who have "had GSDs all their life" when they are looking at special needs dogs.

not out of line at all to ask adopter to wait for neuter, and also the responsible thing to do. please check vet references (personal references are useless imho, who's gonna give a personal reference that will say bad things???), and be careful.

It looks like Bear has found a new forever home. I am so happy for him. I have spoken extensively with the potential adopter on the phone. He is very experienced with shepherds and had a dog with a lot of the same fear issues that Bear has. He lives alone, no other pets and is committed to lots of training with him. He is retired and looking for companionship. As long as everything checks out on Friday when we meet, Bear will be in his new home and have a much better life then I was able to give him. I am sad but so happy at the same time. Thank you to everyone for all the advice on rehoming him.
