May I share a FB group on “Understanding and Working with Rescue Dogs”? After I rescued our 1 1/2-year-old Lab/Staffy mix rescue dog I Iooked and looked for resources to help me in this often-challenging process. I could find a few articles and blogs about the journeys of a specific rescue dog but not much about how to work with a rescue dog to help their people and the dogs themselves.
So, I created “Understanding and Working with Rescue Dogs” myself. Please feel free to read and add your tips to help the dogs in the transition and their owners as well. I am not a canine rescue expert by any means, but I have raised and trained numerous working dog puppies and I am a certified Equine and Canine Reiki Practitioner. When I rescued Ginger Rogers in the summer of 2021, I learned a lot through trial and error. I made mistakes and enjoyed some successes.
I believe that all rescue pet parents want to do the best they can for the animal. Why not provide them with as much targeted information and help as we can?
