The way they do it is to have a number of supervised visits, but given the Covid19 restrictions, they can't happen at the moment.  Add to that, we are in guarding isolation, so no such visits can take place until, from our point of view, there is a vaccine.  We would not take on a new dog until we were protected from catching, and probably dying from, Covid19, as that would be another stressor for the dog, requiring him to be rehomed again (plus some other side effects for us of course, like we'd be dead!)
I think that unless the Trust cannot rehome him elsewhere (in which case we would take him like a shot) then we have to try to forget him.
He does look like our first Irish Wolfhound, Brora, except she was about twice his size  :D

Just tried topost a picture of my scruffy schnauzer but its just too complicated >:( Anyway I wanted to show how similar to Brodie he looked - yep its just not worth the risk is it, you'd never forgive yourself if he hurt one of your other animals  :-\ Shame isn't it  :bouquet: :hug:

I grew up with a scruffy schnauzer - he hated being stripped, poor lad.
We've accepted that Brodie really would not be suitable for us here.  We are really sad about it, but we shall keep on looking for a dog or dogs to adopt and give a loving home to.  I think I can say that after all this discussion, Mr F has come round to the knowledge that we shall before too long, have another dog ( ;) ) It's just too good here for dogs not to give one or two a relaxing, happy home to end their days here in the sun :sunshine: :dog: :dog:
