Hi Sue
It si always best to get a bb if you can. The older the glider depending on his temperment and the handling the prior owner gave can be quite a handfull to bond with. Try to find a breeder who handles their joeys daily but be sure that the joeys are 8wks out of pouch or you may have diet and immune system problems. Hope this helps

Hi Sue,
Are you interested in a rescue glider or just want a baby? I have had 6 rescue's over the last 10 years and they have all been the sweetest things around. A rescue needs alot of attention but I had no problems bonding with any of them. Good luck with whatever choice you make.

You have a point there skatr as i have rescues also and they are very sweet also but i also have one that would rather bite then see what you want lol. Rescues can be very sweet but they have had their bond broken by their previous owner and trust doesn't always come as easily the second time around don't you think. Joeys that are handled and placed in good homes by 8wks have very little adjustment to their new owner. I love my rescues but then i have had alot of exp with gliders too.

possummomca the funny thing here is that I have never had a baby glider. Well I see it as strange, only rescues. I have a pet store type guy that calls me when he gets a unruly glider that wont fit in with his gang. He doesnt sell any animals at his store just fed and supplies. One of the latest gliders he got in was so very mean he said. He tried to intro her to one of his males and she was just dealdy. LOL I went to get her, paid 100 bucks for a very scared very sad very shy female glider. She went to the vet asap because her grooming nails were growing into her toes and she just wasnt right. Now so many months later she is such a people person. I have no age and no info on her but hopefully with the BML diet she will thrive and be just fine. Sorry I am rambling on. I just have never had a baby oop and would love to, but I am good with the rescue ones.

Yes it does sound like you are good with rescues. That is awesome and our little fur butts need many more ppl like you with the gift to heal not only the body but the hearts of these poor bb's. I am always trying to tell ppl to be sure this is the animal for them as there just aren't enough ppl like you that can turn their little lives around after someone bonds with them then has to get rid of them. My hat is off to you , we need more like you Skatr

Thank you so much for the kind words Possummom. Everyone has that special gift with one or more animals.
