a ** red zone ** dog
I got my dog from our local humane society - and I had free obedience classed included ... There were about 12 people with their dogs in the class. One lady I talked to said the dog she adopted was considered by the society to be a "red zone" dog. Adopt at your own risk . In class -- this dog was the biggest sweetheart & smart as a whip . I never got the lady's name , but I ran into her at Petsmart months later & asked about her dog. She said he's the best dog there ever was ,gentle as a lamb & getting smarter every day.
This made me wonder about who is assessing these dogs and
what criteria makes a dog a "red zone dog" .( I live too far away to go and ask questions ) I sure hope all the dogs - whatever zone they're in is getting a fair shake at being adopted.
