Why did you decide to rescue?
Me and my family decided to rescue because it's always nicer to rescue, as that dog has not had a great start in life and we wanted to change that!
Describe your rescue dog for us.
Everyone who says that their dog is the most unique or amazing, that is true! Woody is so funny and has a heart of gold! He is great at agility and competing, but loves a great cuddle when you want one!
What was your biggest fear with rescuing and how did this fear play out once all was said and done?
My worst fear about getting Woody was for him to maybe lash out on one of us as he was a stray from Ireland. We didn't know his background as we got him from a rescue center and they just found him on the streets. However, as he started to settle in, he started to trust us and we began to learn that he was just a big fluff ball!
Would you rescue again?
I would definitely rescue again! Giving a dog another chance makes me feel so proud and knowing that the dog is now loving life, it's just lovely watch!
What would you say the most positive part of rescuing is?
Giving a dog another chance when they have been through the hardest of times. It feels so special.
What would you like everyone to know about this topic?
Don't be afraid to rescue a dog. They may be a bit nervous or have some bad habits, but once you earn their trust, they will follow you forever and won't look back at the past.
