Should I rescue this Maltese?

  1. We have two rescued dogs, a Border Collie and a Pomeranian. We also have a rescued dog-friendly cat. (He actually plays with the dogs!)
    The Pom is VERY possessive of me, and I spoil her more than I should, because she was so close to death when we found her. :-( She growls and snaps at the other dog if he gets too close to me on the bed. She follows me around constantly, sleeps with me, etc. I pay tons of attention to the big dog, too.

    A woman I know bought a Maltese from a pet store as a puppy, but has never trained him. So now she has a half grown Maltese who is not housetrained and doesnt know any of the basics. She is getting “rid” of him, one way or another, but the weekend. I asked her to bring him to a Maltese rescue, but she said they wanted money to surrender her dog, and she disagreed with this. The No Kill shelters have a waiting list.

    So, I was thinking about taking him, but I think my Pom will have a tantrum like we have never seen before. I would probably not ke
    I would probably not keep him, just get him fixed, vetted and trained and then find him a good home. But I am worried that my Pom might completely regress. Any suggestions?

    Well first, win the lottery.

    This takes an amazing amount of money.

    Right now, start voluteering at a shelter near you. You will learn a lot and get some great contacts.

    Be a foster home for some Chis. That will also teach you a lot.

    Good luck to you.

  3. Im looking to buy my first horse and my instructor said it would be best to buy from a rescue but I cant seem to find the right one. Any suggestions? Ive also been to all the other horse sites, horsetopia, horseclicks, equine.com, ect… I just need to know Horse Rescues in Illinois that are selling horses. Thanks to anyone who has anything to suggest!!

    Rescued Horses are generally not good first horses I have no idea why your trainer told you that.

    Rescue horses can cost a lot more money becuase generally they need to put on more weight, and will need more farrier and vet care. When buying a rescue horse unless its allready back into good health, its whole personality can change. My rescue filly was lethargic and a dead head when i rescued her, now that she is healthy she is spunky and a totaly different horse.

    Rescues Can have a lot of trust issues becuase of the neglect, as well as if they were physically abused.

    Ive dealt with many rescues over the past 3 years and i wouldnt recomend them to any of as a first horse. Also keep in mind that a rescue horse will most likly not have the training required for a first horse.

    Now im not saying that you cant find a rescue that is really well trained, and is now in good health, but the likly hood of it isnt very good. There is a reason most rescue are cheap, becuase the buyer will have to put a lot of money into it after they buy it.
