|But, Sarah. You DO foster and you DO work with the dogs. What about those millions of dogs that are trucked up North and go directly to their new adopter with absolutely no evaluation or foster care at all. These people pick these dogs from a picture. When the transport leaves, they are left completely on their own.
This is happening all over the US and, trust me, most of these people are ill equipped to deal with these dogs who have come right off the streets. This is not fair to the people , or the dogs, or, especially to the whole premise of ""rescue".
Just for one small example...there is a "lab" rescue trucking dogs up here from TN , the people are told they are getting a one year old purebred lab, evaluated and trained. NONE of the ones I've see had one speck of Labrador blood in them and they were mostly Not neutered, three year old street dogs. One pit bull (called a lab because it was tan?), bit FOUR family members the first night. Another 120 lb black and white, collie coated "Labrador" was placed with an elderly lady. He was wild and outweighed her and when she tried to return him after he broke her shoulder she was told it was her responsibility to get him back to Tennessee.
These people all should have met these dogs before they took them, the dogs should have been properly evaluated, and someone needs to do some follow up after these placements.
This type of rescue is WORSE than buying a mill or BYB puppy, IMO.
