Would you be willing to let one of our Reps visit your home by appointment? If not, why
Please provide any other information you feel would be helpful in screening your application:
Foster Homes are given an honest evaluation of the temperament regarding a dog we have to place. Oftentimes, the complete history of a rescued dog may not be known and behavioral or temperament problems might emerge which, on rare occasions, may be serious enough to raise safety concerns or questions regarding suitability for adoption.
Are you prepared to handle behavioral issues with assistance/guidance from your Rep?
Foster Homes work with a Rescue Representative and that Representative has the ultimate responsibility for the dog and the right to place it as he/she feels is appropriate. We do work with the Foster and value their feedback, as they know the Foster Dog best.
Is this acceptable to you?
