How "local dog rescue" came to be... coming soon.

I have a soft spot for behaviorally challenged dogs and often assist pet owners and other rescues with dogs they are unable to manage so that healthy animals won't be needlessly euthanized. I believe all dogs deserve a chance without being unfairly labelled as "damaged" by people who simply don't know any better. In 30 years of rescue involvement and interaction with thousands of dogs I have met less than a handful that were beyond help, whose behavior issues could not be safely managed with proper training, guidance and an understanding of their needs.
