I saw this on the news, what a great story and heroic efforts to bring this dog to safety..just goes to show that even though the world seems full of people that don't care for or take care of their animals, there are plenty people out there that would go the extra mile to help an innocent animal..
Your very welcome…I hope you have a good time.
The thing to remember, if you get a jerk who comes by, is to be polite and just listen to them.
They really don't care what you have to say, just want to vent and see a reaction.
I always smile, say, oh, I am so sorry you had that happen to you...and then just get busy talking to someone else.
BUT mostly its just good fun with very nice folks who want to talk dogs.
Its nice to be able to show rescue does try to reunite folks and their dogs.
Most of us do try very, very hard to contact breeders, owners, anyone we can who can help us track down the former owners.
Its sad that in some rescue areas, the breeders and rescue DON'T work together for the dogs.
I am so very lucky.
We have a great basenji breed club up in the PNW.
They are smart, caring folks who only produce the dogs they are sure they have good homes for.
I have only had one person in my area not take a dog back, or fail to offer to help with funds when rescue rehomes their dog.
So, its a win/win for the basenjis in my area.
Until we have no basenjis to rehome, I can only hope the rescue groups in other areas work to win the breeders over to helping the dogs.
Course, some folks your not going to like, or be able to work with, but still, when we keep in mind its all for the dogs…
Hope you all have a wonderful sun with your families and pets.
