How many of you are rescue parents? What breed did you rescue and what has been your overall experience with rescuing? I've rescued two fur babies. My Japanese chin, Buddy, and his rescue sister, a standard schnauzer named Buffy. Buddy has been no issue. He blended into our family very easily. I worried a bit because he was 7 when I got him and had never been around kids. After having his foster mom bring him over for a week everyday, I could see he would be a great fit in our home. Buffy, on the other hand was a whole different experience. I took her on a whim as she had the same foster mom as Buddy. She had only just turned 1 year so I figured she would be easy to train. I was very wrong. I'm guessing she had been severely mistreated in her original home. If I tried hooking her to a leash she would try to bite me. Trying to brush her was a terrible experience. It took three of us to hold her just for a brushing. Being a schnauzer brushing is a must to keep the mats out. In the end I returned her to her foster mother. She needed a single owner who had a great deal of time to train and love her.
