    RM, it's a very hard decision to make, I've been through it with my horses but thankfully never a dog.

    This little thing is meant for humans but I love reading it and thinking about all the lovely animals that have passed on

    well I've had a bizarre twist fate happen.
    Had a phone call from a lady who wants to home Drover.
    She has been made well aware of everything about him
    and I let her know that she may only get the next 6 months with him,
    could be 2 years, could be 2 months.
    She and her family take in older and sick dogs and give them the best they can
    for the dog's "last days".
    There will be a meeting on my terms on Sunday.
    She initially got in touch with the folks who gave him to me (they are a rescue/rehome group).......
    they believe its worth a shot to see how he goes as being the only dog in the house and
    take away some of bad feelings between Drover and our other dog.
    I'm skeptical but seeing that a couple of parties are involved in Drover, I am at least co-operating.
    I just think all this moving around will not do him much good. But anyway............
    I guess I'm agreeing to it as the situation in my home did not turn out as i would have liked and although
    skeptical, maybe there's something in their theory to prove me wrong.
    In any case, I don't feel he should be here for long. I'd pretty much got my head around the idea.
    Could all go pear-shaped.....time will tell.

    'Rambo'smum' - if you believe that this will be the best for Drover and these new people know exactly what is wrong with him and they are still prepared to take him - then look at their offer very seriously.

    Drover, being an only dog in a home would be ideal and hopefully alleviate a lot of the stress he is feeling at your place.

    Heaps of Best Wishes and

    Given what Bernie said, if the dog's head is in trouble - which will result in aggression - could you live with yourself if Drover seriously harms someone or their other rescues because this disease affects his personality in the worst way?

    Is there any way you can verify the bona fides of this woman? Would she still take him if you asked for $150 (to donate to the RSPCA on his behalf). I think I'd want to talk to the vet who took care of their previous dog(s).

    Hi Rambo's mum...

    I hate being paranoid especially at the expense of genuinely nice people of this world. But I do think it's different to take on a dog that is old and decrepit- to one that is going slowly mad and bad.

    And I'm not sure I'd trust someone who wanted to take on the mad dog. Especially after Sean's posts in the rehome zone.
