Personally, after having the experience of purebread puppies with papers that I paid tons for and then switched to taking in rescue dogs, I had much prefer the rescue dogs. They have their neuroses you have to work through from previous owner's abuse, but to me they make the best dogs once they learn to trust you. Just a personal preference.

Wolfhound rescues are a great. I belong to the patomac Valley Irish Wolfhound club and we have a strong rescue team. Most of the dogs are rescued because of size. 35 inches at the sholder sound smaller than it really is.

The best part of a wolfhound is how well they fit in with your family and friends.

My friend recently passed over the rainbow bridge after a long wolfie life of 9 years. sad.gif

My Monster Mati is a rescue. Saved her from the family she was tormenting and her from them. They were letting her run amok and not caring for her. Poor little thing.............. moon.gif

I've been working for the animal rescue organisation in Germany for quite some time.. some things I've seen just made me cry.
One of the reasons why I'd like a small holding and get a few elderly out of rescue stations to give them a good ret of life.

the problem with a lot of pure breds is the line is so fine, it gets crossed a lot just to keep the puppies "pure bred".. at least in America.
I have had 6 pure breds growing up and I have had and trained 2 rescue dogs in the last 10 years. They have been the most joyous, fun, and loyal pets ever. One was a blue heeler.. or an Australian Cattle Herder, blue color. She was a rare breed in the US when I got her at 5 yrs old. After being bit by my family pet, one year later, my mom decided I needed another dog to not be afraid of them. We put a call out to our local vet's office and a month later the receptionist called to say she had a rare breed she couldn't define that was hit by a car and dumped on their doorstep. The vet ate the cost, we paid for her shots and took her home.
She stayed with us for the next 17 years until she died peacefully of old age, arthirits in her sleep. We buried her under a beautiful blossoming tree in Ohio.
The other one had some serious issues. A norweigen elkhound afraid of everything under the sun.. especially lightening! We worked through it, and now he has a lovely home with small children and another medium sized doggie.
i miss them!

it's something I discovered that I enjoy it while working for that rescue organisations, I like working with broken animals. It's so rewarding when the animal starts reacting positively to you and other humans.

One of the hardest cases I had was an ex-showjumping horse. He was 13 years old and had been barred (they made him jump over too high hurdles with spikes on the top, often hit is front legs with a spiked stick and other stuff), he had burn marks as well as other scars (especially around head and neck area). I knew the woman who decided to take him in and we trained together with him. It was a long process (over years) and he is still afraid of alot of things and people but we have him so far that he doesn't shy when he sees hurdles and doesn't run away when he sees strangers. He even comes if me or his owner are standing in front of the fence and greets us.
It is very hard but very very rewarding. I'd just have a bad emotional problem giving animals away again wink.gif

I have a client who brought in her new "rescued" animal which is a Racing Greyhound. He was a bit shy and nervous. I was amazed at how abused these animals are. Most she has rescued are always nervous but good with most people.
I'll never understand people who abuse animals and children, except for their sick.

I love Marmaduke.. one of the great and funny things about Great Danes is that they don't think of themselves as dogs and they definitly don't think of themselves as small smile.gif
