Re: Adopting a Dog from someone leaving the country?

Other than a puppy, I would say most dogs come with history. We have always gone the adoption route and no matter what you know about the dog, in your home things can be different.

In your case I would recommend avoiding private adoption. Best to visit shelters where experienced staff work to find the best fit for your family and for the dog. Usually there is a trial period which is important.

Over the years through my work I have known families who, for various reasons, could not move their dog with them. However, these have been the exception and for the most part, in my experience, I think expats will go to great lengths to be sure the family pets are part of the move.
