Will I get an animal with behavior issues?
An organization will not knowingly hand over a Tasmanian Devil dog to you. And often rescue groups have relationships with trainers who are equipped to deal with behavior problems. If you choose to take on a challenge then typically a trainer will have one or two sessions with you to provide tips to correct problems.
"It can happen," advises Kim Croom, volunteer of the Pet Foster Network, "but if you are a first time foster, a rescue group is going to work with you so your first foster experience will be wonderful. People who have good first experiences are more likely to foster again."
Some foster families actually request problem fur-kids according to Croom. "I do know some people who foster regularly that ask for animals with specific behavioral issues because they've had success correcting bad habits in the past."
