Not all of them are crazy. I think a rescued dog ought to be placed carefully and get a great home. But I keep seeing these outfits that won't let you get one of their animals if you don't keep it in the house. I'm not talking about poodles or shnauzers, I'm talking about Golden Retrievers. I've had bigger dogs all my life and most of them did not want to be in the house. They'd come in and greet everyone and sniff around, but even when I tried to train them to sleep by my side of the bed, they'd get restless and want to be outside. It is obvious they preferred the back yard over the confines of the house. Some of the rescue operations even recommend crate training to keep the dog in the house while the people are at work all day. So being shut in a crate is supposed to be better for the dog than running in a big, fenced, secure back yard with grass, trees and other dogs to play with? I do not get it.
