    I know that seems to be the most important thing when our local rescue does the testing, newsie. They always stress that a dog is responsive to rewards, even if they have had not previous training. Same with the RSPCA actually. It is only if they cannot get the dog interested in even focusing on them for a reward that they 'mark them down' so to speak.

    It's not that they fail the test Beloz. They are given a rating - gold, silver, bronze and some are declared not suitable for rescue not by the pound but by the rescue group. The gold ones are more likely to be rescued than the bronze. My experience of the local rescue group and yours seem to be different. I think the Canberra rescue group is not as good as it makes itself out to be. I have seen some really nice dogs go down at the local pound and others have been rescued and they stay in foster care for months. I think some really nice dogs are missing out and it pains me greatly.

    I didn't know that. Maybe the people I know with inside knowledge are looking at them with rose coloured glasses...
