|Rescue Me ID: 15-08-03-00075Ted (male)|
I adopted a beautiful pure bred australian Rottweiller in February this year. The poor boy had been kept in a cage his whole life (8months) and so when I first took him for walks the pads on paws would bleed. He didn't have much front of back muscle, I suppose due to lack of exercise. Other than this, we know very little about his history. As soon as we got him out of the cage at the rescue centre, he dropped his heads into our lap for a cuddle and that was the end of it, we were in love. We called him Ted. Around 6 weeks into adopting him we fostered an much older very poorly treated rottie. He had been a guard dog on a boat his whole life, was completely emaciated, had 12 teeth removed due to rot, terrible cherry eye and so could barely see and he also wasn't strong enough to stand or walk for longer then a minute or so. Long story short(er) the old rottie decided he wanted a bone that Ted was eating and a fight ensued. It was the first aggression we had ever seen from Ted, and frankly we were shocked at the strength of the old rottie. After a few weeks of anti-biotics and anti-inflammatories, the vet x-rayed to find that Ted had suffered a large bite to his nose breaking several fragments of bone off and causing a severe infection. He had an operation to remove to bone and was left with a number of drains and lots of stitches to his nose and face. We also gave back the old rottie to a dog free home. Since then, we have moved house with Ted (to a quiet tiny village, he didnt like the buses in the noisy city, they scared him) who is a big marshmellow of a dog - until someone tries to touch his head or face. He is now very scared of people going near his face and unfortunately his only response to it is now to bite. Its his way of warning people off but being a large dog, it leaves a mark. He has never bitten me or my partner and is incredibly loyal and loving, making this all the more hard. But we live in a very small village in Hong Kong where locals patience and knowledge of dogs is minimal at best and we just dont have the space for him to be left alone. There are always people coming by who insist on ignoring our pleas to leave him be. If you leave him alone, he comes to you in his own time and loves to give you a good lick, but the second he sees a hand coming to his face, he panics. Dont get me wrong, he has had many pats on head by strangers at the beach that he has not reacted to, but he has snapped at people a handful of times now and if he does it again, there is every chance he will be put down. This is devastating as it will be due to pure ignorance and arrogance of people thinking they know a dog better then the instruction given from the dogs owner. He is a lovely boy who i would 100% keep if i lived in the UK or actually anywhere that would allow you to have a house and garden as opposed to a flat. But I am stuck in HK due to my job and if i think in Teds best interest, he would be so much better off with someone who is far more experienced with dogs, and has the space and training knowledge to help him get over his issue. He would be such an amazingly loyal companion who loves to bound in the open space of fields or beaches when given the chance. (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Hong Kong|
Dogs can make good pets in Hong Kong if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.
Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!
