Bravo!!!! I cant agree with you more Mojosmum!!!mojosmum said:The question is.....are you capable of handling whatever a "rescue dog" brings to the table (so to speak) and I think the answer to that is a resounding "Y - E - S " . I've read your post about all you want to do with this new addition ....heck....I'm this close to asking you to adopt ME! You sound like a wonderful person with a lot of love and patience to give. Either choice you make will be the "right one" for you and for the new addition to your family.
well..sometimes some breeders may keep a few dogs longer then usual to train them and raise them themselves, or whatever. Then they will sell them after they are trained. I guess this makes it easier for someone who wants a dog but doesn't know how to train it very well. I know it probably is a stupid thing to do, but it might actually be a good thing. This way the people who get the puppies thinking they come fully loaded with potty training a obedience, don't take the dog when it gets out of control and leave it somewhere so they don't have to mess with it. Its a horrible world when people can do that and feel ok about themselves. Other then that i don't really think there is a way to get an older puppy.Dilligas said:Okay, pardon me if this is a "newbie" question, but:
Is there a difference between "getting an older golden" and "getting a rescue golden"? I mean, are there places you can get older (2+ year) dogs from that aren't "rescues" per se? And if so, what's the difference?
