I expect the same standards from ALL dog owners regardless of the origins of their dogs.
One of the most important points I put across to clients is that there are NO excuses; “he is a rescue” is NOT an excuse to put your dog or any other in a position where it feels the NEED to defend itself; it is the job of the OWNER to risk assess situations and protect dogs from themselves and others!
I do not expect my dogs to be tolerant of certain situations because I do not allow that situation to arise, eg I would not expect my dogs to be tolerant of children pulling their ears unless I EXPECTED them to have to put up with this!
I think you have missed the vital point of this article, the first couple of paragraphs; was the woman being aggressive in this situation?! :nono:
