A rehoming fee?

How much does it cost him for someone to adopt his dog?

A rehoming fee is a GOOD thing. NEVER, EVER, EVER give away an animal. it weeds out the people looking for free dogs for bait dogs and junk yard dogs.

Bait dogs.. More like animals to resell. People looking for a pet RIGHT NOW and usually without much thought - just see a free dog and say "heck, why not".
And then there are people just like anyone else who happen to fall for the free dog.

I never ask for a fee, with my fosters I say there is one and upon handing the animal over refuse to take it. It doesn't matter if you list the dog for free or $1000, it's up to you to do a home, reference, maybe even background checks and up to you to get the proper paperwork and trust that person before you hand the dog over. What money people have to spend on the dog itself to bring it home really doesn't equal the care it will get.
