Skald the Rhymer - I have five rescued dogs right now, with several others who’ve died over the years. Pretty much a rescue has many of the same traits as any other dog, although some may have fear or separation issues because of their pasts.
Mike was a german shepherd who had separation issues. He was destructive (he learned if he just worked hard enough, he could unlock the windows, open them up and let himself out of the house. This was not easy on window sills, frames and miniblinds), but extremely loving.
Kate was a doberman-pointer cross who didn’t seem to have any issues except a strange fear of tape measures. She was protective but not aggressive, quiet, good with cats and kids and other dogs.
Patty is an English setter. He’d never been is a house before I adopted him. Now when I’m home, he can’t get close enough. He’s always at my side. Although I’m in the middle of hundreds of acres of farmland, he never goes out of sight of the house. He knows he’s got it good.
Grace is a doberman who was dumped near my farm. She was between 7-9 when she was dumped. She’s sweet and loving and thinks she’s a great hunter because she once caught a rat in the barn.
There have been many dogs in my life, and most of them have been second-hand pets. Like any individual, they have their own personalities and quirks. Some do have issues, but I’ve never had a dog whose temperment I didn’t trust.
