Hello - New here and looking for some advice on fostering a Moscow Watchdog in the UK

Hi all

I hope you don't mind but have just started on the fostering team for animal charity and have a very special boy to place, he is a rare breed in the UK I believe, a Moscow Watchdog and therefore needs a VERY special foster carer, I can not find literally anywhere that specialises is these breeds in the UK and wondered if anyone may know of anyone who keeps these who may be willing to foster, or even give some advice as to where I may try to advertise?

Many Thanks

Emma

Welcome to the forums!

As you are dealing with a breed of dog that does not have a large population base in the UK, you might want to look up people who are used to keeping large, active dogs rather than people who specialise in this particular breed. Look for people who foster Livestock Guardian dogs of all stripes, Molosser breeds, and possibly people who are into St. Bernards or Bernese Mountain dogs who are up for a challenge.

As long as this dog is not coming from a background that has left him fearful, aggressive, or otherwise hugely problematic, care requirements should not be terribly different from other large, headstrong breeds. If he does have behavioural issues, he should be evaluated by a behaviourist, and only placed in a situation with a qualified individual upon their recommendation. At the very least, in that situation a foster would need a proven track record with that particular problem, not that particular type of dog.

Good luck!
