There has been a lot of discussion about this. This is certainly what some would consider “retail rescue”.I wanted to ask for the opinions of golden retriever experts on this...One of the golden retriever rescues I network with as part of my pet sitting business has started taking in unwanted golden retrievers from China because there is a shortage of goldens in need of rescue not just in my state, but nationwide. Do you see any potential problems that could come with bringing in rescues from other countries? Rescue A Golden of Arizona - Available Dogs
Not trying to badmouth anybody; whatever choice they make is for them to decide, but I'm honestly curious about whether rescuing a golden from a place like China is a good idea or not?
Part of the problem lies in the fact that some of these animals are bred for the sole purpose of import to the US to sell as “rescues”. More commonly seen with breeds like French bulldogs.
