Thread: Purchasing a Dog Through Rescue

    But by rehoming this dog and hoping that he ends up in an environment better suited to him, the safety of other people is at risk. It is to much of a risk in my opinion and rescue should only be about rehoming suitable dogs not trying to save everything with a pulse. Too many nice ones are pts.

    At the end of the day this rescuer will do what they want but I personally have no time for dogs that show any human aggression.

    Hmm. I agree with that comment very much.

    Well, at least your decision was made for you. I guess it wasn't 'meant to be' . Maybe the next one you find will be closer to home so you can visit them yourself and fingers crossed everything will fall into place.

    It probably wasn't best timing with Inca being so small (well not small but young ), give you more time to concentrate on her while she is still a pup.

    Seriously though, the carer sounds very odd. Not too many people skills eh?

    Oh, I don't know TKay. Whilst still very young is possibly an ideal time, if I find a dog who gets along with other dogs well. You have to remember she is almost now almost the size of the Bc next door. ROFL.

    Well now we are beginning to laugh about it. Husband has finished work today, showered, and we were sitting out on the back deck. Inca comes running outside, skids to a halt in front of us, sits back on her haunches and waves both paws in the air at us.

    We both decided she is not stressed at all, and proceeded to give her a hug. As her tail was wagging madly, I don't think we have anything to worry about!

    OMG that woman is not a rescuer - she is a nutter.

    I wouldn't be surprised if an experienced Newfoundland (with all their marbles) could visit George, they would find there was nothing wrong with him that removing him from "rescuer" wouldn't fix.

    How unbelievably sad.

    Oh dear, that whole scenario really concerns me. The profile read really well, yet it's like she was talking about a different dog!

    I am truly sorry that your first encounter with rescue has turned out to be a bad one, they aren't all like that! Sadly it's fruit loops like her that will end up turning people away from rescue and send them to a pet shop or byb.

    Just as well she's in WA as I'd like to have a few words with her.....

    Yes, that's what I had a problem with Greys - the profile sounded so promising.

    Quite point blank, I think it is a case of forgetting rescue and gathering together the next couple of thousand for another quality puppy.
