One thought on “What Do Concerned Dog Owners and Breeders Do?

  1. Arti says:

    International rescue organizations must take on the responsibility of not only helping international dogs at risk but also implementing protocols to protect domestic dogs from imported pathogens. To the extent these organizations do not accept that responsibility, stricter domestic regulation of companion animal imports from high-risk regions should be pursued. As in all decisions involving risk, North American countries and dog owners must assess how much risk they are willing to tolerate and then develop coherent policies for managing those risks. Ideally, international rescue organizations would work to educate and place these rescued dogs in their countries of origin rather than importing them to North America.
