How should that work?
Okay. Awhile ago I joined a Yahoo Group about Dane rescue. It's a national thing, and there is rarely ever anything in Ohio... But a few days ago I got an email from someone who had posted about a Great Dane in Akron, Ohio that needed a home.
The story is that her owner got pregnant and didn't think she could handle the big puppy as well as a baby. So she got rid of the dog.
I'm under the impression that the dog was given to the woman who posted about it. I'm not totally sure, though. No rescue association name was ever mentioned in any emails.
So yeah, as you guessed I emailed her about it. Told her that we have wanted a Dane for some time, told a bit about us, and left it at that. She responded today and sent a few pictures as well.
She said that there is a $150 adoption fee and that the purchaser has to sign a contract that they will immediately have Tascha spayed. This is no problem with that of course! I'm just a little skeptical about this. I have this gut feeling that this person is just trying to make some money off of the dog.
Anyways, I emailed her back, after thinking a real long time. I told her that if she is part of a rescue agency/group what name is it? as well as asking if the previous owner just passed the dog off to her. Then I mentioned that the drive from here to Akron is kinda far, at least three hours... So I asked IF the dog was just given to her, would us signing the agreement to spay immediately plus us doing the transportation... would that work.
I'm just posting it here for you guys to hear about. I hope you guys can give me your opinion about it, was it wrong of me to ask her that?
