After several threads about which new dog to get, which breed, pup or older dog, I just had the thought to point all of you thinking about a new hunting dog to some German organisations offering dogs which got into problems, because of the holders death or other circumstances which made the dogs loosing their home....
I can highly recommend the following organisations (I dont know, if you have anything similar in the UK):
Krambambulli Jagdhundhilfe e.V. - Ein Hund ist wie kein anderer!
I think, its worth a look and a try, if you are looking for an experienced, already trained dog.
I also believe, all these dogs should get a second chance!
If you are interested and need any support or help, just let me know.....
