Do they appear as single household for you ? None of the pets I've given up for adoption appear in the world manager and I don't think they should. 

 

It seems like he can be adopted again afterwards which does change the traits but I'm unsure if it's supposed to be the same pet.

Yep. Same cat(same clothing, race, collar and name).

 

Do you assign "last name" to your pet? I always do - firstname lastname.

 

> None of the pets I've given up for adoption appear in the world manager

 

Given up "1" pet - adoption NPC appear - catch cat - left(disappear) with cat

- open up smart phone - hire service - adopt cat - can't find him

- so I go to world menu - open up manager - found.

 

Hmm.

Then probably the pet was re-created from the adoption you used (cause when you click on adopt, households are generated for those). Not sure how this is supposed to work.

 

Leaving on unsure for now until I find out more

I did some more testing and I don't think it's the same pet. They have different IDs and I would expect then to have the same.

 

Also if you keep putting the pet up for adoption and get it again, it keeps creating more and more so you end up with several dogs with the same look and name.

 

I can't get them to show up in the household manager though.

 

There might be a bug here but I don't think it's the traits changing. I would lean more towards the same dog being created for adoption over and over.
