Fence?

Will Rescue deny a potential new owner of a rescue if they do not have a fence?

First, it depends on the rescue organization- some do require a fenced yard. Second, it depends on the dog. Some dogs are jumpers and no fence v. tall fence, etc. So I think you can easily see why with some dogs a large fence yard is preferred. But at the same token, often people who have fenced yards, dont take their dogs for walks and some dogs really need a daily walk. So it all depends...

Just wondering....I do not want to go through the long application process, if I am going to have to purchase a fence first.

Linda- just be honest and you can ask them about it. A lot of rescues do require home visits as well. While it may seem severe, I know some breeds would not consider someone who doesn't have a fence- my sister in law couldn't get a dog from whippet rescue. But they generally have the rules for a reason.

Many rescues require fences. When I got Dugan from HRI, I did not have a fence. They struggled with the fact that I didn't have a fence with 2 dogs and we came to an agreement that I would put up some temporary fencing and create a play area for the boys. This worked out really well, and rescue was happy with that. I took pictures of it if you want to see it. We decided to get a fence a few months ago, so we took the temporary fencing down and put up a post and rail fence in the entire yard.

Yes, please post a temporary fence. I understand the home visit to check out home situations.

I couldn't find too many pictures, but this should give you an idea of what we did. We bought the green wire fencing at the Home Depot and stakes to put it in the ground with. They also make a tool to use to hammer the stakes in, or you can use a sledge hammer or something. Laurie puts up the temporary fencing for all of her playdates. We left it up at our house for the entire winter and never had any problems.

The one we used was 3 feet high. They sell it in all different heights, so if you want higher, you can get it. My boys are not jumpers, so 3 feet worked out fine. I think it came in 100 foot lengths. We bought 2 of them so that we could give them a few hundred feet of space to play in.

Thanks for all your help! How do you decide on an age of a rescue if you already have a pup?
