Today’s topic is how rescues handle dangerous dogs. Thanks to AZGRC (Arizona Golden Retriever Connection) for sharing their dog bite policies and paperwork. This should be an exciting discussion, as I’m sure every rescue has a different way of handling dangerous dogs. While the documents below cover dog bite procedures, please also consider commenting on the following questions:
What do you consider a dangerous dog?
When is a dog so dangerous that an organization chooses euthanization over rehabilitation?
What is a reasonable amount of time to evaluate a dog before deeming him or her “dangerous”?
