The former foster parents at the rescue can provide a wealth of information regarding observed behavior of the adopted dog. The former foster parents can also provide information about the temperament, level of training, housebreaking progress and all sorts of other things.

However, please remember that moving to your home, regardless of how good a fit the dog is, will be stressful for the dog. This does not mean that the dog is not a good fit for your pack. As I have mentioned many times before,dogs are very much routine oriented animals. They are happiest when on a routine. Moving to a new home severely breaks their routine, even in ideal circumstances.
The following is a short list of things that can occur due to the break in routine. Most of them will be temporary:
- Regression in housebreaking
- Separation Anxiety
- Timid or Shy Behavior
- Upset Stomach/ Loose Stool
