I know what you mean.
For my part, I approached a local rescue home and the dog we were after had already been re-homed. A couple of weeks later they approached us, saying they had a dog that they all thought would be a great family dog. We met the dog and really, at that point, I didn't care whether she came from Greece or not.
Anyway, she's got a good home, and most rescue organisations here won't home dogs with children under 12. And as someone else has said on here, they're all staffs. I've nothing against staffs but I see so many of them in the wrong hands, I don't want a problem one in my home. And not sure how a staff would stand up to my running program.
