A rescue dog is not just a cheap dog. Often, rescue dogs are wonderful pets caught in a bad situation at home: a job transfer to a location where the pet cannot be kept; a divorce where neither person can keep the dog; or a death. But just as often, a rescue dog is a problem dog.
Many Kuvaszok that come to Kuvasz rescue have not been trained or socialized. In other cases, the dogs have medical conditions that require ongoing veterinary care. These dogs need owners who are able to spend the extra time and effort to meet their special needs.
