He just speaks to me, more so than the "free" dog... Maybe it's because he's part JRT I don't know....

I'm going to meet both dogs before I make a decision, but he's the one that pulls me, that's how I chose Siren and she was next to Di, the best dog I've ever personally owned...

I'm torn on exchanging money, but Siren for example cost me far more than that to get here, I know the difference is that Grace didn't "make money" on her, but really neither will this lady, in a sense, and she does want my vets reference before he can leave her care...

Fwiw I don't care if others do, I also never charged an adoption fee for a single rescue I fostered an placed independently. I just don't see myself doing it because it doesn't feel right for me.

Rescues don't get dogs and then try to sell them when things don't work out. It's not the same IMO, to each their own but I would not purchase a pet because it didn't work out because frankly these are things that we shouldn't be recouping costs on.
I get this view, and feel the same for the most part, I'll just have to see what happens when I meet her and after she talks to my vet, I get the impression her "fee" may change if she trusts the new owner..

Meh, people buy pet store puppies that speak to them as well. Right or not, it perpetuates a cycle in most cases, but to each of those dogs it means the world and it was completely worth it to their new owners.

Me, I would try surfing rescues instead of BYBs & rehomes if it was bothersome.

Too bad you don't want a JRT.. there's an 8 month old looking for a home being given away here.

ETA: ha! Apparently "here" is really smiths falls Not far from here..

It's just so quiet here with one little pup, I may be trying to fill a hole, that's true, but I really miss having some bustle around the house...

I don't know what to do to be honest, but I may be flying home more often and was terribly lonely there without a pet
If you're going to fly the dog often I'd get a dog that can ride in cab. Flying cargo is only something I'd do as often as I had to.

As far as rehomes, yes I would pay them. I'm not sure how much though. $200 is a little bit much for me. But then again Summer was $500 as a retired breeder dog at 4 years and I am not sure that is any different really.

I could likely consider a JRT that did not look like Mindy, Jeff is very opposed to the idea of having one like her, he thinks it would be too painful..

The other issue is my JRTs were very well behaved with cats, birds, and small dogs.. That's a bit of a rarity...

I have contacted at least one rescue and was promptly turned down because of Larry and no fenced yard.. It's made me gun shy.... Not all rehomes IMO are bad, this one seems like she's trying to do the right thing, why would it be better to wait until she runs out of time to find the right home and then puts him in rescue?

I don't feel it's unreasonable at all, though it would depend on just how much they are asking. I have no problem giving someone a rehoming fee to show I'm not some scum bag looking impulsively for a free dog. BUT, I think on the flip side, a lot of people use rehoming fees as a way to make a profit off others feelings. I wouldn't pay $400 for a rescue mutt.

When I had to rehome one of our dogs, I asked for a $50 fee so that I could donate it to the rescue that listed him on petfinder. His original purchase price was huge and I absolutely would not expect compensation for that, food or vet costs.

But yes, I would pay a small rehoming fee. $200 is a bit much for me.

I'm meeting her tonight, I'll see what she says once I meet her in person, I get the feeling she's doing what she was advised to as far as asking money for him, and I'll see how it goes tonight, I may be all wrong but my gut tells me she just wants a good home, I have given her my vets name so we'll see if she called him...
