Why buy from a breeder when there are plenty of homeless pups in shelters???

GAH. I don't work in rescue, unfortunately (Ella is too dog aggressive), but I would think that if ANY dog showed ANY signs of fear, they would NOT be adopted out. Why would any rescue adopt out a fearful dog that could possibly become fear aggressive??

This is HORRIBLE.

I wonder if the dog is really as bad as described or if they just have a bad foster?

Bad foster or bad dog, to me it doesn't matter because the everyday person who wants to simply adopt a pet isn't going to know canine behavior and/or what triggers the dog and what doesn't.

I say even if just the foster home is bad, then bad rescue anyway for having a bad foster.

Christopher,

I applaud you for what you are doing with your rescue.

Unfortunately I am very concerned about you adopting a dog out like Buster, if he has ANY people aggression at all he needs to be humanely euthanized.
He could hurt someone badly and could you live with that? There are far too many GOOD dogs that need homes, human aggression should not be tolerated at all in any breed.

Please think seriously about what I’ve said, if you place this dog and he hurts someone you could be liable regardless of what your contract says. I hope you will make the right decision.

Thank you!
Cindy Holliday

Well you know how even people have come on here and claimed to have an "aggressie" dog that wasn't doing anything other than barking or pulling or staring. I was thinking along those lines. But the dog shouldn't be put up for adoption if it has unmanageable behavioral problems. It needs training.

If that dog is 1/2 as bad as they make him sound, he doesn't need training, he needs a 1-way trip to the VET. :po:

Oh just wait until you read this second email, this is BS! A retired couple with a big aggressive "feral" dog, right.

Hi Cindy. Thanks for your message about Buster. It reminded me that I have to update his profile. An older couple agreed to foster him. They're botyh rertired. With individual attention and love, the biting has stopped. He feels safe and loved and he doesn't have to compete for attention by exhibiting negative behaviros. That's what the guy said who Sid and Mary hired. A trainer. I'm sure you're happy about Buster. They will likely keep him forever and if not they'll foster another. They like hard-luck cases. I think if I had euthanized Buster I would have been sinining against my mission statement of no kill. Buster was always a good boy even when he demonstrated bad behaviroes.

I told Sid & Mary I'd help them with the payment for the trainer. I only have $63. Could you send Superior Mutts money? Please. I really need it. I know you want to help and I appre4caite your advise. Thanks Cindy!
