Congratulations on your decision to rescue. You won't be sorry. Be consistent in your training and you can work through anything. I am fostering an 8 year old German Shepherd. He is a really sweet boy. He just lacks manners. That is easy to correct. He just needs exposure to proper behavior every day. He doesn't really have any bad habits. A rescue dog will definitely bond with you. Some may have been loved in their old life, but others have never known what it is like to be loved. Either way, the dog will love you. Train, feed, walk, bond. He/she will look to you for everything.
