I agree...not even all of Georgia has the same law. My post was edited and the word "Here" at the very beginning was cut off along with a quote from a previous poster.

But regardless of where I'm at if I saw a dangerous situation I'd probably just let the chips fall where they may...

You best be extremely certain it is a distress situation as it can come back to bite you. In many areas even if that is the case you cannot legally break in and must wait for police or fire/rescue.

I guess (even though our white dog was rescued) having a couple bad experiences from rescues I would not try it again. The worst time with the local SPCA we were turned down with at the time our 7 and 10 year old boys crying their eyes out with their hearts set on a beautiful Lab. We were told we were bad people since that we wouldn't take into our house and spay & neuter all the feral cats that belong to the neighbor.... they were & are sometimes on our property & it appeared that we needed to do the same with the deer....... we live in the country...... So we no longer donate to the SPCA or any others.........

I also had a bad experience with the local SPCA. But,there are other rescue groups besides the SPCA. I will never "buy" a dog from a puppy mill breeder regardless of how reputable others say they are.

I am looking at Golden Doodles; golden Retriever/standard poodle mix. I had a golden that adopted me about 20 years ago. I played with him in my yard one Saturday, and he kept coming back. He would be waiting for me everyday when I came home from work. I finally found out where he came from, and adopted him, great dog. The secretary in my building was a 4H puppy raiser for The Seeing Eye, and her son grew up to work for them. The guide dogs are goldens, Labradors, and shepards mostly, they need smart dog with a good temperament, and some fail the training, they only take the best of the best. To get a pedigree bred dog costs an arm and a leg. I feel bad about not helping a rescue, but I figure it maybe the only pup I ever have.

We have had issues with other so called rescue groups as well. I have a real problem rescue with groups that require their permission before a dog is put down. To me if our vet who we have been dealing with for 20 years says there is nothing else that can be done and the dog is suffering then that is between us and our vet not the rescue group.

Also someone dumped off a nice Boxer just before Christmas at our house and since we had her vetted and we found her to be heartworm positive no Boxer or other rescue group would take her............ If she would have got along with our white dog we would have kept her but our white dog is not social with all dogs.......... so we found her a home where she has been treated and very happy........ no thanks to a rescue.

The funny thing is over the years we have rescued many dogs who were placed by rescue groups.......... from their new owners............

I have only bought one dog our Boxer Sadie Maybe they would be considered a backyard breeder but they only wanted one litter from their Boxer and that was all they had. She is almost 9 now and yes I would with the circumstances do it again.

We have put no dogs down in 35 years. We have had at least 10 dogs in 35 years, we know our vet, and most of his staff on a first name basis, we have a 1/2 to an acre fenced yard ......... but to several of the rescue groups we don't deserve their time. Granted there are not too many rescue groups within 200 miles of us.......... So yes we rescue from individuals when we can but I am not beyond buying a dog from a breeder ........ but I wonder sometimes how many rescue groups can place any animals.

So for my rant as it is off topic but there are many good breeds of dogs. Most of ours have been big dogs (Golden Retriever, Lab, Dalmatian, Boxer, and pure mixes) but we do have one Hinez 57 small dog that is 16 years plus ....... but barks a lot so he usually has to stay behind.......

Your blond dog looks just like our Aiko that we rescued. She's 30 lbs very sweet and spoiled. We have no idea of her parentage - do you consider your dog to be a "breed"?
