  1. Thank you for the article. And thank you to Rebecca and all the other people who try to look after the waifs and strays that come through the rehoming or rescue facilities. I wonder if it the constant (misplaced) perception of stray and rescue dogs that we are all problematic and will need an awful lot of work. Maybe its that we aren’t “beautiful” like dogs are when they’re purchased from breeders. Either way, it is kind people who look after us who should get the recognition.

    1. It’s rarely a dog’s fault that he ends up in a shelter Dexter – people need to do better. And you’re absolutely right that there are people who expect rescue dogs to come with issues, but like people, they are all individuals and no matter where they come from – shelter, breeder, friend, rescue- they will have good qualities and challenging ones.
