I don't think he will...he isn't much of a forum kinda guy.....He is a brick layer in Illinois and spends most of his time outside...so pictures and info might have to come from me...but I will ask him
I see your points Mary.MaryAndDobes said:I don't think so.
What you described is rather typical for a responsible rescue organization. You nailed all the things that a responsible rescue does in placing a dog carefully, and I'm quite sure Pollo was neutered too, right?
Well, on April 7, frznbuns posted that they were adopting Summer themselves, but then stated that if it didn't work out for some reason, they'd foster until they found another home.
By April 10, 9 am, Summer is looking for a new home and being advertised as intact. A huge no-no when it comes to rescue.
Less than 24 hours after that, a new home is found and the foster person is only *thinking* about spaying Summer.
I'm stating the obvious. That is not the way that responsible rescue people operate.
Alright I guess I am going to respond to you, which I really do not want too...MaryAndDobes said:The problem is that too many people have their rose-coloured glasses on and want to believe everything will be fine and want to believe people will do the right thing. Step into a rescue role and you'll soon see that this is rarely true, and the reason why I'm trying to drive home the point that if we take responsibility for "rescuing" a dog, we better make sure we do a complete job. Talking to someone about altering the dog doesn't ensure it is done.
I don't know all the circumstances? Neither do you. We have no reason, NO REASON, to believe that everything is peachy just because it's a fellow person that we talk to here on dobermantalk. In case you've forgotten, we've got albino breeders here for one thing - just because people find their way here doesn't automatically make them great Doberman people that are doing the right thing for the breed or for the individual dogs for that matter.
Once again, I find myself trying to be educational. Trying to let people know how responsible rescue people operate, in this particular case. Once again, I get illustrated as the rude one and it's perfectly fine for someone else to be advertising intact rescue dogs. Once again, I find people here resistant to education. You find me rude? Well, what are you doing for this dog? What are you doing to try to educate in this situation? Personally, I find it rude that you felt it necessary to criticize me when I'm trying to help the dog.
I agree with Mary 100% about this.MaryAndDobes said:while I realize you may not consider yourself a rescue person, you thrust yourself into the role and now it would be a good thing for you to learn how rescue operates, especially since you are loudly criticizing the existing rescue in your area. If you intend to pick up any of their slack, it would be a good idea for you to learn how to deal with rescue situations. You may not like me and I don't really care, but 2 important things are to contact the breeder and to spay/neuter any dogs you "rescue" regardless of whether they would be "good to show" or not.
