Buying a pup instead of rescuing...

    I give up, I'm buying a TM pup since every rescue attempt I made was just flat out declined or denied after bonding with the dog. They seem to not care about my TM experience so I looked for a breeder and found one that would help me and also have a written contract if anything happens. Litter would be born first week of December and I'd be able to pick him up around March. I'm planning on having him as my service dog for my PTSD and the sire is a service dog already so hopefully the temperament would be fine.

    Hello @BeeJay

    Congratulations on the upcoming puppy.

    What's the story with the Rescues?
    You would think they would want to find experienced homes for their pups (?)

    They said that there's too much foot traffic outside my house because I live by the beach and my yard is too small.

    That's too bad.

    What's wrong with running your pup on the beach?

    So puppy will be coming in the Spring, and we shall be looking forward to baby pictures :).

    Of course. He'll be here by March. I feel bad for that dog because he's stuck there up to now and he's been there since he was 10 months old and now he's 2

    Rescues can be really picky... and have been known to turn down perfect homes for what most of us here think are insane reasons (like having an intact dog in the house [no matter how well trained or socialized], or minimizing vaccinations)...

    Glad you're getting a puppy, though! It is good to have good breeders available for people who need working dogs with known backgrounds. :) Can't wait to see those puppy pictures!! March seems so far away. :(

    I'll probably start posting pics as soon as he gets born on the first week of December lol.

    To be honest, I didn't know that I had Tibetan Mastiff experience till my dad told me that the dog working at our farm when I was young was a TM. We raised each other but I had no idea because of the light gold color that was almost white so I thought we had a very huge pyr
