Breed rescue affects purebred dogs well beyond the show ring.

Memorable Scottie Rescues:
"One blind 5-year-old Scottie came from a New Jersey shelter and was adopted by a family that had recently lost their rescued Scottie. He now lives on a lovely golf course, even though he can't see it! Maddie, a senior girl estimated to be 14 years old, was dumped by some unfeeling idiot. She required extensive dental work, but more serious was the large bladder stone about the size of a half dollar that filled her bladder and had to be removed. Today she is much loved and doing great!"
Many thanks to the rescue coordinators who took time out from their hectic schedules and lifesaving work to provide information for this series. I appeal to fanciers to connect with local breed rescues, be it to donate old equipment, crates, supplies or to foster a rescue dog for a time.
While this series hopes to bridge the gap between fanciers and rescuers, pet buyer ignorance remains the root of the problem. If the average dog lover knew how to find (and identify) good breeders, purebred rescues would be unnecessary. Please educate every chance you get!
