|With most rescues, it would be too early. Rescues are all about placing dogs, and the unfortunate thing is that people are flaky. So some promise you will be back in one month "ready" is likely to be met with some level of caution, as if they cease marketing and you flake (of course, YOU wouldn't, I am just talking about general experiences of rescues), then there are all these would be adopters they may have lost out on and now they are starting from scratch. If you offer to complete the adoption, which means pay the fee in full, sometimes this helps. But the bottom line is that dog is taking up a slot of some kind and to move him means another slot opens. So there is that preference for the ready home. My rescue has held for several weeks on some occasions, but never without the adoption completed. Been there, done that, and it usually comes back to bite ya.
Of course, every rescue is unique. But I've worked for a number, and I think what I have just said is a fair general assumption, *particularly* when the dog is highly adoptable.
