    If not you? then who? I love the name Gertie. I wouldn't want to spay either at this stage of life. All you can do is invite them to your home and show them the spay/ neuter certificates of your pack. God Bless

    I doubt they will break their policy. I even know of recues that require all dogs in the house to be fixed, even if the recue dog is. I agree it is risky at her age, they really should make exceptions on dogs who are beyond their average lifespan already, it would put unwanted stress on her and lower her immune system. I must say for 9 years old she looks to be very healthy judging strictly from the picture.

    Anyway, about your question. You already answered it, go for it! I think it is so wonderful for you to do this. It was just a matter of time before you did find that special one while you were scoping out all those sites.... and you finally did!

    OH what a beautiful sweet old face she has. I would not be able to resist if I was able to have another. Sure she's not potty trained but there's ways around that. You're experienced enough with bullies and you have all of us here. She deserves a year or two of a good life before she crosses to the Bridge. That's too bad that they'll have to spay her at that age but I do understand. I just love the old sole the old ones have.

    Thanks for your kind words everybody. EBN really is the greatest place.
    I'll let you guys know when I hear back from them on dates to make the trip to get her. The women at the shelter really are kind. They haven't met me and are placing their trust in purely my application and what they got back from my vet and my references.

    I bumped up my other thread but there are still two six year old bullies there that need homes. Their adoption fee's are just around $200 (they all needed fixed and chipped) for these guys.

    Oh what a wonderful final life she will have. Warms my heart. She has such a precious old face. Hopefully the others get forever homes soon.

    I spoke to the shelter again today. They wanted to know how soon I could come get her. I told them next week and they are going to talk it over and decide if they want to adopt her out to me or if a rescue can come pull her from the shelter before I am able to get there. I told them I surely didn't want to stand in the way of her getting a great home if someone or a rescue was able to get there first. She is on hold either way because she needs to be spayed and have a vet health certification done.

    Now we wait for a decision...
