Most of the dogs transferred into our rescue are shelter dogs from various backgrounds that were placed on a euthanasia list.  Our goal is to save these dogs before they are euthanized.  Often, the dog's background is a mystery, as well as their personality traits, quirks, behaviors, etc.  Rescue dogs, especially older ones, can be unpredictable and may even pass a temperament test with flying colors, but the dog may still have difficulties adjusting to a new home and situation. The dog might have problems with meeting new dogs or people and integrating into a new pack. 

This can sometimes present as aggression.  

This does not mean that the dog is aggressive. 

Fear, pain, toys, or food can all cause a dog to present aggressive behaviors that are correctable.  

However, it pays to be safe. Never leave your children or other animals alone with a new dog, even if you think it’s the sweetest dog in the world. Take your time getting to know your dog and introducing your dog to new people and new dogs. It is better to take your time and go slowly with full integration intor your home until the dog is at ease and comfortable in it's new surroundings. Not every rescue dog is abused or mistreated, but they’ve still been through trauma and can be unpredictable.
