    New pic of the girl BC? Love it.

    Rescues adopt out hundreds of animals a year. They just don't have the time and resources to follow up with everybody.

    Also, I've seen the wool pulled over good breeder's eyes with people they "trust", multiply that by 100 and there's even more of a gamble.

    I helped a lot with Raven's litter. I did the home screens for a few of the adoptions. The one pup I posted here, after I was part of the home screen and she was adopted out, I found her listed on CL not even a month later. I was furious. I got in touch with the adopters and helped get "Buttercup" who is now Honey back into the hands of the rescue. ...she was eventually readopted by a family we know personally.

    Anyway, these people totally lied to us and even though they "owned" their home and we saw proof, they were foreclosed on and being evicted. They KNEW at the time of adoption that they were being evicted and still lied and took and PAID FOR IN CASH, the puppy. Cash that could've been used to help their family financially.

    Who knows if Honey wouldn't have been spayed, would they have bred her to make money off the pups? Possibly.

    It's an imperfect system, I know it and agree. I wish that OSS and K9 vas were options for the rescues in this area. They're just not right now. Hopefully, sooner than later, they will be.

    Yeah, but even if you averaged it out, there would be far less strays/dogs in shelters there than here.

    Trust me, I totally understand the reasons why everything is done the way it is, and obviously I don't have some amazing alternative solution to present, I still just can't say I'm comfortable with it, and for that reason I would never adopt a dog altered at ~8 weeks.

    I'm still not either, however I think I've been desensitized to ped S/N too.

    I just was a little offended by the comment (not from you or uno) that if someone chooses to adopt an altered dog they must be not "tuned in" to the dog's needs. That wasn't the case with me at all. I just happened to fall in love with a puppy at a place I volunteer. I don't want to sound a "fur-mommy" bc Lord knows I'm not, but my little PITA chose me.

    I moved the overpopulation in other countries posts out of this thread in hopes to separate the conversation. I couldn't get all of it because posts are intermixed with the age/rescue topic.

    Let's try to keep this one on track and the other on a different track lol

    Agreed. I'm out anyway. I've got to go vacuum upstairs.
