Pet social worker won't take pet and the crate

★ Novice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:PC
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? PC: 1.59.73.1020
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Cats and Dogs,City Living, Get Famous, Get to Work, Seasons, Parenthood
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Get your dog taken away due to neglect.
What happens when the bug occurs? The pet social worker comes in and the crate is placed, but they never take the dog away. I can't save, I can't go into build mode, I can't travel because it said I cannot do anything because a sim is dying(???) so then I tried to put the pet up for adoption. Someone else came and the action of the dog being taken away resumed, but now there's still a crate on the lot making actions still frozen except this time it's saying because there's a sim leaving my house. Either times, I couldn't interact with the social workers but they went about their life as if they were living in my house.
What do you expect to see? I expect to see the crate to go away or be able to at least travel or build so that I can remove the crate. Or at least interact with the social worker.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Never used.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? No

Cheat will also not work likely because of the limbo my sims are in, aka, a sim dying or leaving the household so I can't reset any objects or sims or anything.

@Lil_Redd12 Could you please patch your game and check if the same issue occurs ? You're several patches behind if 1.59 is your current patch number.

Sorry I couldn't view which version I had because I wasn't trying to leave my game and didn't know how to view it. But I actually have the 1.62.67.1020 version! Also, I was only able to resolve the issue by having a baby, which forces the sims to go to the hospital. That was the only way I could leave my lot and when I got back, the crate and the social worker were gone.

@Lil_Redd12 Does it happen every time or was it a one time occurrence ?

Game stuck on pet evaluation

★★★ Newbie

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
What is your current game version number? v 1.22
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? Get to work, Cats and dogs, Parenthood, City living, Get together
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? After the pet evaluation ends, the game still performs as if it was happening
What happens when the bug occurs? You cant edit the lot, travel anywhere else, save the game, manage worlds, etc
What do you expect to see? For the evaluation to end
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Yes
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I adopted a dog and got a notification that the pet evaluation was ending. Although, the game doesn't seem to realize that it ended. I can't go into build mode, CAS, I can't travel, and most importantly I cant save. The problem is I can't remember the last time I saved the game, so I don't want to lose a bunch of progress. Any suggestions?

@britneyelainemil The only known workaround that seems to work is having a baby at the hospital as this will end the process. Otherwise you will need to shoot down the game.

Does this happen every time you try to adopt a pet and if so, did you test without mods ?

@MoonX07 Best to upload a video to youtube as unlisted and just put the link here.

Does this happen in any house you try or just a particular one ?

Does the adoption scenario end ?

I recorded it in sims 4. I'll try to fix it. But it has only happened in a specific house.
