Ben turned out to be one of those, from SC. He was going to be euthanized before he was brought North, into my local SPCA, and into my hands. I did not know that, until I talked with with the rescue team representative up here yesterday.
I can understand putting down a vicious dog. The Jekyll & Hyde rottie who liked me was just not one that most people want to take legal responsibility for.
I don’t feel any better for taking in a rescue dog, as opposed to any other dog. He was just the one we liked. It just weirds me out a little, knowing that he was going to be euthanized in SC, before he came here, to live a dog’s life.
