Well, I guess that's one thing I don't understand about rescue agencies is the list of automatic disqualifiers they lump everyone into. My first golden came from a very good breeder who had a very beautiful in ground pool with a water slide for her goldens, and no fence around it. My boy was 6 months old when we got him and he was going to be kept by the breeder as her own pup out of the litter but she found out we were looking and "gave" him to us. He and his mom were playing tug and he would climb the ladder of the slide and down into the pool over and over. It was love at first sight. The pool had a walk out in the shallow end that she used to introduce the pups to swimming in. So I ask why would a pool be a disqualifier for a dog that is bread for being a water dog?
