My problem with this type of thing, is that working with rescues and breed dogs...I just see so many horrendous temperaments and aggression issues (DA and HA)...and I just don't see "family pets" much anymore. My own personal theory is that the lack of easy-going dogs at shelters and at breeders is why people are turning to these lazy, idiotic doodles so much nowadays...because doodle breeders breed for temperament above all else (with no regard for health, structure, etc).
Well, the "easy" dogs are the ones likely staying in their homes
and I agree with the rest.
Right...and to take this further off-topic......this is why I don't fall into line with the whole no-kill idea. If the good dogs are in homes already, the rescues and shelters should take a harder look at what they have in their hands. If the dogs aren't adoptable by a normal family (one willing to put some time/energy/training into the dog) that just wants a pet...then that dog should be euth'd. I'm just getting tired of rescues trying to save EVERY dog.
Amen sista! However, if we do that, we are subject to having the crap pounded out of us, because we aren't "saving" them all.
