bonding with new owner?

Postby sniffyfriend » Thu May 30, 2013 1:31 am

My only experience has been with a rescued flyer who was about 5 wks old when I got him. He bonded very well. He basically lived in my shirt :)
I have really been missing my sweet boy and have been actively searching for another since he passed a few months ago.
My hubby, knowing how much I desired one, began searching and found someone selling a 1 year old flyer. I haven't been able to confirm if he is still available or not, but wanted to go ahead and ask for input.
It is about 6 hours away, so there is no way for me to know for sure how this little guy is really until I am committed.
My question is this: how well do flyers that old bond with a new person? She said that he was raised from a baby and good with people, but I know that I will miss the early bonding experience.
Any insight or experience any of you have is much appreciated. Thanks!

From what I understand, it can happen, but it's more difficult. You'll just have to put in the time and see what happens!

They can switch a bond with patience. I'd see for myself how bonded he is with her to judge his bonding.
