In 2005 I was asked to take on a 6-month Italian Spinone puppy. She had been rescued by some clients along with her mother into a home with 2-other dogs. The previous owner had no time for them, he had rescued the mother, had a litter from her, sold the rest of the litter but kept one. The litter were born and raised outside in the garden. The new owners realised there were issues as soon as they entered the house and couldn't bare to leave the puppy behind, they thought, they could deal with taking on 2-rescues at the same time.
