      Sadly not the dog for us....perhaps we are being too selective...all dogs deserve a good loving home.

        I'd go the other way and call it a beaver, every man wants a beaver

              Any dog you get is getting a better life. I wouldn't get too emotional about not re-homing every dog.

              If I ever strike it rich or win lotto, "boemans refuge for the furry and forgotten" is becoming a thing.

              In fact if Ms boeman ever ditches me, i will technically be furry and forgotten.

                The only issue I'd have with getting one off Gumtree etc is there is no way of knowing whether it has hip dysplasia which is common in Retrievers

                  It common in a lot of dogs...didnt think it was such an issue with GR's I know they can suffer from seizures. Our girl was a cross breed anyway so she got the greedy guts of a GR and the ...well nothing from a German Shepard. Yes rescue dogs get a clean bill of health from the vet...or you are made aware of any health issues they are also behaviour checked and catagorised for specific households.

                  have you ever thought about volunteering at the RSPCA Boeman? My missus walks the dogs every week...she always ends up taking too many out...cant resist the pleading looks....mine included...man! I love it when she orders me to beg etc....

                            I would love to, but having 2 border collies I don't even know when I could do it?

                            I take my dogs out twice every day, often more on the weekends, so don't think I could allocate time to more dogs?

                            Plus our new pup is one of those batshit insane border collies.

                              I am a bit naive..
                              Had a top cross ...once....
                              Is it fair to leave a dog at home alone..?
                              Not sayin you do...
                              How do you desensitise the need to hunt/bark/help...?
                              Or is there a thing......with dogs....that makes some breeds easier to leave alone.?
                              I get so attached ...that I just wanna be near at all times......
                              any help is a good thing.ta!

                                Breeds, background and temperament all influence this.

                                My Aussie Shepherd has an effective off switch but will bark if there is a reason. Sleeps a lot when I am not home.

                                Best thing I did was not be on holidays when he came home as a very young pup - but I did have the luxury of home visits at lunch times. It became normal that I would leave and come back.

                                Not like the anxiety when I moved house and had to leave him in an empty house (nothing left but him) and go back and collect him after an hour or so. That really caused some stress.

                                But when YOU have separation anxiety, that is something different.

                                Hope you find what you are looking for BusaSteve. Something tells me dogs pick you. Kismet or some-such.
