Many people believe that rescue dogs are troubled, traumatised, strays with long-lasting problems. While this view may be true in some instances, the majority of dogs in rescue centres are there because their previous owners have simply abandoned them. Every year new homes are found for thousands of these 'rescue' dogs by dedicated charities but in order to make this re-homing a success, the new owners need considerable knowledge, patience and understanding. The Rescue Dog takes the reader through each stage of the re-homing process, from choosing a dog, to preparing the home and garden and settling the dog into its new life. With chapters which examine the elderly dog, puppies, avoiding misunderstandings, training and common concerns, the authors have produced a fully informative and practical guide. Topics covered include: Where to go to find a rescue dog and what to expect; The early days when the dog is settling into its new home; Canine requirements; Common behavioural concerns; Children and dogs.
