When irresponsible owners lose their pets and can't manage to even bother looking for them for over a week it is common practice for shelters and rescues (and the OP runs a rescue she isn't just a person off the street) to require that owners seeking the return of said pet to spay/neuter them so that should pet find themselves in such a predicament again at least they won't be adding to the pet over population problem. Our local AC has the same requirements before you can spring an unaltered animal from their shelter (you can spring them for $15 but you have to sign a contract to have your pet altered within 60days with the exception of pets under a certain age). The OP is the legal owner of this dog, she is being more than generous by giving the animal back at all. This dog is not a specimen that should be bred. In her place I think I would be hard pressed to make the same decision with such an irresponsible owner.

Yup yup yup!!

We had someone at the shelter I worked at come almost a MONTH after losing her dog (who was in foster care for an injury) and volunteer recognized the dog from picture. The shelter didn't HAVE to give it back, but they did return the dog to her. She took one look at the dog, lifted her tail to look at her lady parts and said "Oh, she's fixed?!?" and was very upset because she was a "$50,000" breeding dog . . . needless to say this was a bully breed dog that was found as an injured stray in Phoenix. She took the dog back, but it was just sad because she seemed to care much more about breeding than anything else.

Sorry for the derail, but if you lose your unaltered animal and a rescue or shelter takes possession of the dog after the time period allowed by law they have every right to alter it. Spend a day "in the back" at an open admissions or "kill" shelter as they are called and then tell me whether this or any other dog should be spayed/neutered.

the other alternative to a rescue getting her was euthanasia. Dead dogs can't reproduce very well. Maybe next time she'll use a boarder or carry Precious in her purse.

Technically the dog would be dead right now if not for the OP. Just in case you missed it, she actually rescues dogs knocking on deaths door. If it had not been for the OP, there would be no dog to return to first owner.

She actually is well within reason to require this animal be spayed. If the owner had found her pet on day 1 at the shelter, she would have been required to have her spayed there too. That is pretty standard for any shelter/rescue group.
