    I agree, not to sound like a negative ninny but a dog already dazed and confused now being moved on again? And will she actually put him down when required or just bang on for longer then he should the poor thing.

    Agreed.
    And i had just about got my head around putting him to sleep.
    But the lady who runs the rescue place where he came from,
    wants him to have another go.
    I'm feeling a bit "headbutting brick wall".
    The young couple came and viewed him today.
    Drover took very well to them, responded very well to their attention and
    he really like the young guy that came.
    I emphasised that he may go another couple of years......he might only cope
    another 2 months and that things with Drover are a bit of a Roulette wheel.
    Do they want to go through that??
    They seemed very open to all i was telling them and it wasn't putting them off.
    Part of me feels they are genuine and have Drover's interests at heart, but for me, could be selfish,
    i just feel he'll just get shunted around from pillar to post and it should be strongly considered to let him rest.
    Anyway, they have said they want to give him a go, but i asked them to go home, have a good think about
    how he'd fit into their lives and if they believe it will work. Asked them to try and keep the emotion out of the whole thing.

    Not sure what else i can do.

    'Rambo'smum' - all you can do is what you are doing now. It is a difficult position to be in, particularly as you want to do the right thing for Drover.

    What about a visit to their place with Drover to see how he goes there ? If that goes well - then maybe you could also organise a sleep over ?

    Just some suggestions for you.
    Good Luck !

    Thank you RileyJ.....that has been organised.
    Fortunately the couple are very co-operative.

    well as my gut instincts led me to believe.....new home fell through.
    Drover is still with me.
    Think the situation will stay as it is for now.
    At least Drover knew nothing of the politics going on.
    He is fine.
    Time for his big walk.

    Sorry you had to go through that Rambo's mum. The lady who runs the rescue place ought to know better.

    I am also very sorry that you had to go through what you did. Politics and one-upmanship is the name of the game nowadays - regardless of the area you are dealing with !

    Heaps and Heaps of Best Wishes and for both you and Drover !
