Both you and the Guardian want the pet to find the right home. So, if you haven’t yet adopted the pet and the dog or cat has a medical issue, you have a serious choice to make. If you have fallen in love with the pet and are truly prepared to deal with the problem, then go forward with the adoption. If you are not prepared for the added responsibility, let the Guardian know. If you are honest with yourself and the Guardian, you will make the best decision.
