Tell me about it David, I rehome these dogs daily. A lot of good dogs are in the pound. Take them out and really work with them what they are bred for , you suddenly get a completly different dog. I do wish the average general public would think better before going out and buying cute pups that turn into high drive working dogs and then want them out because they are \"uncontrolable' :roll: Its the general public that are uncontrolably buying dogs they dont have a clue about I'm afraid to say.David Frost said:I have 40 drug and 5 explosive detector dogs currently working. Nearly 50% of them are from shelters, pounds or rescue agencies. My selection is behavior specific. While most of the rescues are lab/mix it's not a requirement. Good dogs can be found, as as Bob said, they are usually pain in the patootie dogs that others have given up on. Some dogs also come from homes that purchased a cute puppy that low and behold grew into a full sized dog (go figure).
