Review for Pound Hounds Res-Q, New York, NY, USA
Saw a dog one hour from euthanasia at a local high kill shelter. The dog was rescue only and Pound Hounds agreed to sponsor her if we fostered. We had to go pick her up the next morning. Pound Hounds never laid eyes on her. They then were to come do a home inspection. Never happened. The dog was very dog aggressive (people friendly) and weighed 49 lbs. Quite a risk to walk should she get loose. We worked hard with her. She nipped a few people and tore up the house. We requested financial assistance from Pound Hounds which their site states is available along with any services a foster may need. They refused to help us They continued to state that unless we were adopting the dog the training was a waist of time? We actually found a trainer willing to discount the training. It was impossible for me to keep the dog because of her size and behavior issues but I wanted her to find the right home as she was a loving sweet girl. Upon needing to relocate we again contacted Pound Hounds as we were unsure we would be able to bring the dog. Again they could not help us but tried to make us feel guilty for asking them to take the dog back. (we told them we had never turned a pet into a shelter-true and that we had had dogs and other pets all our lives-true) We spent numerous amounts of money placing her in our kennel on weekends when we had plans-graduations, birthdays- and expected guests or had to be away from the house for long periods of time. The entire time we fostered the dog no contact was made to us by Pound Hounds, we always had to contact them. Found a new place and were able to keep the dog.We contacted Pound Hounds "Great you are going to keep her!!" Suddenly in October we are contacted by Pound Hounds Some one is interested in the dog. Well I say we are keeping her. Oh now we owe THEM $300 and they are threatening to sue us and ruin our credit. They also warn us that the dog has a micro chip in it with their name on it. Good I am opening the door now as we speak and she'll be there tomorrow. Hope you can dig up a foster who enjoys being bit. Also hope you have some insurance!! These people are all about money They had absolutely no interest in this dog until some one wanted to pay them $300 for her. A disgrace They should be shut down!!
We have no idea who this person is. She's not part of our foster base. On a side note, all our fosters pick their OWN dogs they want to foster. We also vet our fosters thoroughly.
