Thank you all. I will ring around the rescues when the time comes. I don't expect a dog to be grateful for me giving it a wonderful new home. I am not clueless about training. Tara was a failure as a pig dog, and was beaten and thrown over a fence into a ditch. She was a shivering wreck when I got her, and after a whole we became an accredited pet therapy team. I would like my next dog to be one that nobody wants, not to feel any doggy gratitude, but just because.
