my dogs have bred and there are too many puppies to manage. I put one up for the rescue and I thought that one of my other sims would be able to adopt it when I gave it up. The sim from another household went to adopt a puppy and the puppy I gave up is not there. Is this like adoption with the children? I had one child removed from the home and another family was going to adopt her but she wasn't there for adoption....I don't understand why we were able to do this in The Sims 2 but not in the Sims 4. Another thing I was wondering is if we can sell our puppies and kittens to neighbors, or if we can give them away to neighbors. I find it strange that if our pets breed we can no longer adopt away the offspring.
