    Amazing how councils/areas differ.
    Still the same here, two dogs only unless you have a kennel permit or a temp permit for fostering I even have to do a temp registration of every foster too. I think my council just likes keeping tabs on everything.

    Still the same, hey. didn't think it would have changed. Isn't Cleas's council/area amazing! 4!!! And there you are filling out heir ruddy forms all the time for a foster dog.

    TBH I don't mind doing the temp rego of the fosters. It's a simple transfer for the new owners so it makes things easier for them. I'd love to be able to have 4! That would be awesome! I can't wait for us to move back to our place. Then I'll be able to have 3-5 but I'm not having any more than just Batty for a while. He needs too much time and attention at the moment

    I haven't had a foster in months. The last one was Batty's mum and she was here for just less than one week. Until I'm happy with Batty's level of training I won't be having any more so it could be a while yet

    Aw Cleas. That is BRILLIANT!!! So she is in the same state as you, I take it? You're going to be counting the days till Sunday now, aren't you?

    I can't wait to see you here on Sunday afternoon or evening, to tell us everything! You must not keep us all on tenterhooks.

    Well done - and good luck on Sunday.

    I am deeply honoured the carer hadn't called anyone else but us! Carer is her vet and rescuer. She knew we would understand her and be able to help her in the best way possible. Lets just hope Sumo and Ruby behaves

    Well, I jut got off the phone from the rescuer who has George.

    A definate no-go!!! I certainly do not wish to be placed on her list. As a matter of fact, I took a distinct disliking to the rescuer, and I think upon my questioning her the feeling was probably very mutual.

    All in all, not a good scenario.

    That's not good, what happened? Did she just have a bad manner/attitude?

    Gut instinct I say...follow your gut instinct!

    If I hadn't liked what Dora's carer had said or the way she talked to me or about Dora...then it would have been a bignono.gif too! And the same would have been the case for Dora's carer!

    Oh well...the perfect dog will turn up DA...not to worry

    Um, she is a dog-listener. Apparently.
    The dog has spent the past 18 months tied to a chain in the back yard. First thing it did upon being rescued was 'go for' rescuers adult son. Obviously I would hazard a guess that males were responsible for most of the abuse.
    The dog was then placed in a foster home with rescuers son, then with daughter, now with rescuer. Not the best stable start to rehabilitation, as the rescuer admitted.

    He does have some issues. Mainly with strangers. So that makes him definately a no-go for us here with children coming over in the afternoons etc. Not going through that scenario again.
    I found that I only got a couple of uestions in, and didn't feel she wished to answer them. At one stage she commented that she would get to that, but wishes to continue with her spiel, so to speak. she then explained that she was sending applicants a book written by Jan Flemmell, and they must agree to continue with the dog's rehabilitation to the letter as instructed by Jan Flemell (?)

    Um, yep, righteo. She also stated that he used to sit on his haunches and put both paws in the air as if he was begging. She stated that he was 'THAT stressed.' I informed her that my Newfie does that when she wants a cuddle or hug, and other Newfies have done it too. It is understood to be a form of affection, and looks very much like a bear hug. She asked if every Newfie I've seen is then obviously stressed? At that point I decided she was a fruitcake.
    The conversation eneded after that. I didn't have a lot to say. For once. Phone call ended.
    This is my first experience with rescuers. Not pleasant. this dog has major issues in my opinion. She said he cannot be within a metre of a stranger. I'm dead-silent, then start asking her questions how she can state he is good with ppl. Ah, I'm lost.
