>>"One of the essential truths you learn while doing rescue -- people are idjits. Cynical, but all too often true."

>>Doc, I've got to call you out on this.

>>If you are actively involved in rescue then you need to really take a long hard look at your attitude and how you are being seen by others. Many families that surrender their pets do so under duress. People loose their jobs, or they have health complications that impacts their ability to care for their pet, or the animal bites a child etc. Granted, some have meet my definition of an idiot but it has never been my place to judge them, and in fact I have always tried to understand their situation for what it is. If you truly feel that people are idiots then why would anyone ever trust you to help them rescue their pet? Please give back that been there done that T-shirt if you truly feel that way.

I'm not in rescue to help the *people*. I'm in rescue to help the **animals**. But don't worry, I don't TELL the people that I think they're idjits.

As for biting a child -- that is almost always the parents' fault as well. Idjit parents. And we don't even accept dogs with a bite history. There's too much legal liability involved. So, unfortunately, the dog has to pay for the owners' idiocy. Again.
