Rescuing a dog from abroad – Advice for pet owners
Read our advice here
Taking on a dog from abroad via a rescue centre can be a very rewarding experience, but there are some important considerations first.
Many dogs will have been living as strays, or spent their whole life in kennels, and as a result are likely to have been poorly socialised. They may be frightened around people and this can lead to behavioural problems.
Pets should only be purchased though a reputable charity or rescue centre.
