Truth! I've owned ferrets, cats and dogs. I have yet to have a "bad" pet. All of my animals enjoyed interaction with humans and were lovable, granted 1 of the cats was more shy and would only let you pet him if you met his exacting standards which changed by the second. None were aggressive or destructive. Every animal I've had was a rescue or as I like to say sprung from the joint. More often then not an asshole pet speaks loudly of their owner.

My German Shepherd girl had issues when we adopted her (she was abandoned in the middle of nowhere) which likely came from abuse. It only took a couple of weeks for her to realize she was safe with us but, in her case, it likely had less to do with our training and probably more to do with her learning to trust us. She's been perfect ever since.

Yeah. I'm sure the local car wash is "seriously alarmed!" about all the dangerously dirty cars driving around your town.

I believe what subby has stumbled upon is what we in the know call an "advertisement". No idea why people still fall for this stuff as "news". Sad..

Having adopted a dog that developed behavior issues post-adoption that required medication and intense training to make progress on, I can say that: sometimes trainers just need to say to the owner that the dog isn't a fit.

Because the dog that I adopted was not a fit, and was not working out. Her behavior problems stopped when she went back to the foster family, that had kids, and women. I'm a single man, she just wasn't into it.

Where is this? In my area, there's no such thing as "outdoor cats". Just a-holes that let their pets terrorize the neighborhood. Or jerks that are feeding feral cats (also a crime).  I've got my countermeasures in place if they ever cross the line though

I got our German Shepard mix from a shelter at about 18 months. The previous owners had left him in a kennel outdoors. I took about a year and a lot of effort to get him decently socialized. The shelter right now has 4 pandemic dogs that they're looking for homes for that have similar socialization problems.

It's the reason the rescue I used to volunteer for would put a moratorium on adoptions in November and December. No matter how much you cautioned them about the responsibilities of having a dog, they would insist they were ready. What they really wanted was to be a hero to their stupid kids at Christmas.

Inevitably, some would be back in the rescue system a month later when they realized how much work it was and that it was them, and not their 5 year-old, that had to walk them 3-4 times a day, clean up their poop etc...

Some of them, depending on how long they were with the adopters, would come back all farked up.

We got our dog in 2019 as a puppy, a doodle. We absolutely have noticed a difference in his behavior around other people pre/post lockdowns. He is very distrusting of other people now. Not that he has any reason, it's just that we didn't have anyone over to our house and he just wasn't around enough other people.
He's very eager to meet people, but they can't look at him or he cowers away. It's very strange. Once they've been near him for about 20 minutes, he's fine, but he's a total scaredy dog those first few. We're hoping it's something he grows out of. We're working on him with it and he's a quick learn and already have seen some improvement versus 6 months ago.

He is also completely p*ssy whipped, in the literal sense:

I got two of the cats from here. The third was a cat that adopted us! So I did not breed them. They are fantastic mousers and keep the rodent problem in my area completely under check. Got two mice and a vole this week already.
