Me and my wife have been searching for a rescue to adopt in the last couple of weeks. I was able to speak a person who rescues animals and had a 4 year old male labradoodle available. She said the owner surrendered the labradoodle to her due to restrictions for dogs in a new apartment.
So she seems like she’s independent and not part of an organization. I searched her information and I saw that she has a lot of rescues. Apparently, the fire department in the city she lives in had referenced her when there were dogs displaced due to flooding.
However, she said that she didn’t have the information for shots for the labradoodle. I don't know if the owner had given it to her. However, she would give a 5 in 1 vaccine shot and she would chip him for me. She said I would need to go to the vet to get him neutered and get a rabies shot. Also, she said I should check to see what other shots the vet would recommend.
She’s also charging a $700 rehoming fee. She said it’s to help with expenses for the rescues she takes care of. I’m fine with that.
I wanted to ask if this is normal or does it seem like there’s red flags here? We’re going this weekend to see him so I wanted to ask if this seems normal and if there's anything I should look out for.
Go & see the dog see what condition dog is in & if he is the age she says he is?????
He might be heaps older, check his teeth if they're yellow a 4yr dog wont have yellow aging teeth & look at eyes & face, is his fur grey around mouth?,
if you like him offer her $300 cash, THATS IT, he's not even desexed.. Leave your number if she says no say when you cant get $750 give me a call but dont be too long as we are looking at another rescue for $300 who is desexed
In Australia rescue dogs are around $350 the dog comes desexed vacinated, micro chip, flea & wormed, if the dog is one of these mixed dissigner breeds they're normally desexed, vacinated etc & cost around $700 cause the rescue group puts the extra money back on their big vet bills but she sounds a bit shonky to me..
Isn't it illegal to sell an un desex rescue dog?
Go to your local pound/shelter ask what dogs will be killed next & adopt one of these dogs, they are more in need, see which dog your drawn too.
