We adopted a dog from Good Dog rescue at the beginning of March. She was supposed to be part German Shepard part Golden Retriever. She was very food aggressive and extremely skiddish.

About a month and a half ago she turned very aggressive and to spare you the horrible details ended up calling Good Dog Rescue (Mike) to return her. Our hearts were broken and we hated to give up on her but had no other choice because our other dogs and us would be placed in jeopardy.

Mike was not very sympathic and said everything to make us believe it was our fault even to the point of us abusing her. After a lengthy phone conversation and a few days later Mike had someone call us to make arrangements to foster her. We asked the person if they had other dogs/children the answer was yes and that person refused to pick her up after we told her how she had been.

This happened twice then Mike finally got the message. He got a very nice person to pick her up and supposedly to her to a kennel in Mass. where she would be evaluated by a vet and have a temperment test done. Then she would go to a trainer who would work with her. He promised us he would keep us informed on how she was doing. That sounds great but because of experience with Mike I'm not so sure if we believe that is going to happen.

It's been a week today that she left, the tears still flow now and again and the thought of whether we have done the right thing by giving her back is always with us.

We have not heard a single word from anyone and our emails have been ignored. How can Good Dog Rescue treat people this way when they rely on all of us to adopt and foster these animals? What kind of business is this that can't appreciate human feelings yet then at the same time want our money!!!

HERE'S WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

AUTHOR: Dorothy - (U.S.A.)

HERE'S WHAT REALLY HAPPENED: Good Dog Rescue is a cradle to grave rescue group and our adoption contract requires adopters to return their dogs to us if, for any reason, they cannot keep them. In September 08, Cindy Fisher notified us that she wanted to return Lexie because she had grown into a vicious dog.



But it wasn't easy to get Lexie back. First of all, it was difficult to discover her location. Cindy had boarded Lexie at an unknown location and made conditions on her return, attempting to control the kind of foster home where we would put Lexie (no children, no other pets). Finally, we were advised that Lexie was being warehoused in isolation in the quarantine, dangerous dog section of the county law enforcement agency. One of our CT volunteers rushed to get Lexie and found her cowering in a small cage, head wrapped in a giant Elizabethan collar, with a big stitched-up wound in the side of her muzzle from an attack by the adopter's other dog.



On Saturday, Sept 20 Lexie arrived back in TN and went straight to one of our volunteer foster moms, Sharon W, who works wonders with dispirited dogs; Lexie couldn't be in better hands. Sharon reports there's not a vicious bone in Lexie's body, but she is indeed a very scared young dog with little trust in humans. She is slowly revealing clues to us about the months she spent with Cindy Fisher. The least little noise, she hits the ground. She goes nuts if anyone touches her collar. She's terrified of the garden hose. She eats and drinks lying down, typical behavior for breeder dogs and others that are kept in confined quarters, in other words CRATED ALL THE TIME!



Lexie was a happy, playful pup and full of potential when we sent her to Cindy Fisher last March. This pup couldn't have had a better heritage, her mother was a purebred golden retriever and father was a purebred GSD. I know for a fact she had the best possible start in life because she spent her first months at my house. But Lexie's experiences over the past 6 months have left her very afraid. Even so, we have great hope for Lexie. Sadly, she'll never be 100%, but we believe that she still has the potential for a meaningful life with an understanding forever family. But first she'll need several months at Sharon's house to relearn trust and regain some self-confidence.



This is a plea to all rescue groups DO NOT ADOPT to Cindy Fisher or her sister Martha Fisher in Granby, CT.
