Know the breed tendencies

posted 5 years ago

I had a neighbor with a border collie -- these folks were nice people, but animal ignorant. They did just about everything wrong: didn't clean the pen, left the dog confined nearly all day, changed the food to whatever was on sale, yelled at the dog when they did let it out (was full of energy -- go figure!). I worked with them and their elementary aged son to socialize this pet, improve the conditions of his run, get them to walk/play with him, etc. My involvement was not enough. The son was walking this dog with a friend -- the boys were talking and laughing. The dog interpreted something wrong and attacked the friend. The friend got stitches and the dog was euthenized.

This pre-dates my work with local rescue groups. I now know to EDUCATE potential adoptors on high energy working dogs like collies, huskies, etc. We need to give adoptors the tools to be successful AND be able to say 'no' when we see that a potential adoptor is going to be a poor fit for that particular dog or breed of dog...

Pros: love the breed

Cons: need to educate potential owners/adoptors
