Nagging Questions:
The Stuff You HAVE to Know
About The Breeder's Interest

In Rescue.

How do you participate in your breed's rescue effort?

Virtually every breed will have individuals needing help at least occasionally. Good breeders are among the contacts listed for national rescue. They will be willing to pull dogs from shelters and help them find safe havens. They will donate to rescue and be sure (usually by microchipping and tattooing) that their dogs are never in such need. The breeder who is too busy for rescue is a breeder that has a big questionmark even if everything else sounds good.

This is especially a concern in those breeds that are quite popular and thus, who have many individuals showing up in shelters and rescues. What justification can the breeder give for breeding (and thus potentially contributing to the population that ends up in those shelters) if they aren't helping rescue in any way?

Of course any additional questions you might have on this topic will be enthusiastically fielded at DigitalDog's Forum .
