I see most every one has a half empty glass, but dogs that go through a legit rescue get vaccinated as a precaution. Though I see why the glass is half empty, the lady should have stayed and provided vaccination proof. A hospital is required to report dog bites, I am betting protocol was followed at some point during the fiasco.

Apparently they couldn't find the animal so that was the only recourse.

I've had to clear out bats in a house once or twice, believe me, rabies was always on my mind, and heavy welding gloves on my my hands.

From the facts as presented, I'd question the "legit" status of the rescue.

Yap, growing up we had a Malamute/Timber wolf mix.

The mom was a full blood Timber wolf.

We got the dog as a pup, and he turned out to be the sweetest dog.

Unfortunately he had kidney and liver problems, and suffered seizures, having to get a daily dose of phenobarbital.

He ended up living for 12 years though, which was pretty incredible for a 100lb dog with those kind of issues.

I was also bitten by a large boxer when I was 12, sliced my hand open pretty good.

No stitches though, and luckily the dog was up to date with his shots.

Yes, I filled out the paperwork and animal control should be contacting me but I think Iím going to contact them tomorrow. I want them to get the dog before he is shown to someone else who has no clue.

Just for the simple fact the rescue nor the foster parent havenít even reached out once to see if everything was ok angers me and Iím definitely going to be sending the medical bills to them. Iím sure they have to have some type of insurance.

My fee was only $75, including chip, neuter/spay, and first series of vaccinations. They were the local humane society, so my costs were lower.
Seamus and I had a one on one right when I got out of the truck. They have around a 100'X100' fenced in area we had to ourselves. They were a little picky, this guy had gone to 2 homes previous, and was returned. He's a BorderHeeler, and I can't help but think his cuteness was why he went to those previous. This time the humane society made sure he went to someone that had experience with these dogs. He's my 3rd one, so I really fit the requirements. The shelter even called me last week to see how things were going.
Hope it works out for you, dogs are the most wonderful people around, I can't understand people that don't think the same. They don't know what they're missing.

I 100% agree. I love a loyal dog but I have no patients for a dog that bites a human unless it has no other choice. I treat my dogs like part of the family and I teach my kids to respect animals but I also treat an animal like an animal.

Ive been hesitant to adopt due to my daughter being autistic. She isnít mean to animals and she doesnít even pay them attention but she does carry food around and if you try and take it she will fight you for it.

Ive learned a good hard lesson to never jump into a rescue like this again. Iím going to go with a rescue with a way stricter adoption process to make sure we get the best fit animal.

I'm giving the original poster the benefit of the doubt that he did his due diligence checking the status of the rescue. People often don't handle situations such as these well, case in point her just taking off. Then again, the fact they wanted to do a home check is something a legit rescue requires.

I think giving them a call would be a step in the right direction. No sense being angry over something that could quite possibly be cleared up with a conversation. The dog doesn't need to be put down, just needs to be housed appropriately and introduced in the correct manner.

Sorry for your unfortunate situation and hope you find another nice dog...find another rescue...sounds to me this dog has a bad history and should be put down,unfortunately some shelters have the ďno killĒ mentality....

We just adopted a 11week old hound mix from a rescue...I prefer puppies over an older dog...he came from Mississippi and Iím just north of Boston ...I can tell you the adoption process was very intense..took a week and several e-mails....they did an in house inspection, checked my yard ,reference checks with my neighbor and called my vet...I had to sign a contract and cost $485 but we got a good pup with the microchip who had his shots and neutered...this is Busta

I respectfully disagree, once an animal tastes blood there's no going back to being just a pet. The dog needs to be terminated.

It's crazy how they make you jump through hoops to adopt a dog, yet anyone can just pop out a kid.. no home inspection, reference checks, neighbour checks, etc...

Cute pup BTW
