|First, know that every rescue differs regarding the point of the home check. I have home checked for several organizations. The reasons can be many. It may just be an extension of the application and a chance to talk more face to face. It may be about seeing if the impressions there are consistent regarding how the person is representing themselves, as a person....if their place jives with who they are saying they are. It may be a physical inspection of the premises. I know with Boxer rescue, I was told to take a dog, and preferably a bouncey one....seeing a dog invading their space and reading their reactions. There can be many aims.
I wouldn't worry too much. Particularly in that you HAVE a dog, and they can see his condition and also how he interacts with you and your basic comfort level.
Where you may get screwed is if they feel yards or for exercising, or if the dog you are interested has a bit of energy. You can counterbalance this by ADDRESSING that the yard is more for fresh air, and that you plan to give exercise vs x, y, z.
Hope helpful? Asks q's if you have them!
