No I think you're being very, very smart about making sure she's well-behaved and healthy first. After all your kids come first, right? If you have a happy household and one incompatible dog throws the house into chaos, it wouldn't be doing anyone any favours to take her. But some dogs are just easy, like Indy this morning; she's such a sweetie! She follows me from room to room and just now, laying at my feet, she was chewing on something. So I said to her, "What have you got?" She spit out a twig and looked at me for further direction. I said, "It's okay, you can have that." So she picked it back up and chewed some more. Such an easy dog! Maybe your new prospect will be like that

Well, I'm pretty sure we are going to end up adopting her, but it isn't without a few reservations. I'll share more when I'm not ony phone. I definitely need input from you all. She's a sweet girl, but hasn't been taken great care of, in my opinion.

I got my girl Sophie when she was 6 1/2. She was a retired momma dog who produced a lot of nice puppies for her owner/breeder. But she was not well-taken care of. She was kept in a crate in the basement with a lot of other dogs. She had been surgically debarked. She was fed cheap kibble once a day in her crate and she was about 10 pounds underweight when I got her. She had a very sweet temperament, but she was very afraid of doing something wrong, especially right after I got her.

When I first met her at the breeder's house, she looked at me with imploring eyes that seemed to say "please get me out of here." She looked so sad, but so intelligent. So I took her. She turned out to be a fabulous dog, and I had 8 wonderful years with her.

It really bothers me that some breeders do so little to care for the emotional and physical needs of their dogs. I'd never buy a puppy from this kind of breeder and I am thankful for the breeders (including many forum members) who do things very differently. But I do think that a retiring breeding dog can make a great pet even if she did not receive good care from the breeder who profited from her pups.

If you feel that she's a nice dog, I'd go for it. She'd be so lucky to land in a home like yours!
