All the ones I can reach in my state and a few out of state. I'll keep trying. Some of the groups do not seem to have any presence online over the last few years. I've called a few when links/emails didn't work.

Please do as much as you can to contact breed specific rescues and referrals people have given you.

A LARGE number of our local shelters are completely closed to canine intake/placement due to the disease outbreaks from the “meat farm” dogs, from Waukesha to Door County and further.

Not trying to be unnecessarily harsh, but there are essentially zero beds available for imperfect dogs, in the public system, in this part of the state.

A ton of the dogs from the SE have been moved to the NE, so if you can hang tight and work with him through referrals you’ve been given, until the quarantine is over (May/June) and our shelters go back to normal, you truly could be saving his life.

This is good to know. I will keep trying rescues here and in neighboring states. I have tried calling several in WI and emailing, and so far no luck. One said they don't take reactive dogs, two others said they had no availability. I would by far rather place him through a rescue so I will keep trying.

I don't know if they can take him or if you have tried them already but I had dealings with them before and we got them to pull a shelter pup that was deemed aggressive by a shelter in Georgia. So they will work outside their stated area.

Thanks; I'll give it a try. I hope it is ok to have contacted multiple rescue groups--as that's what I have done over the past week or so. I'm still working through FB groups, too. It appears that some groups no longer keep a website but do have FB pages.

I figure I can apply to most places within a day's drive, although there is always the issue of getting an evaluation done before they decide whether or not to accept him. If I have to do the trip twice, though, and it works, that's great.

If you are going as far as Maryland, I prefer All Shepherd Rescue
https://www.allshepherdrescue.com/

Char Wills in PA has a good rep and I believe is run by a trainer

Thanks; I haven't come across these yet. I will contact them.

I'm contacting any rescue I can find online or on FB. Some don't have working emails or phone numbers or the FB page last had activity 4 years ago, things like that. All suggestions are welcome. I guess the only limitation is that I need to be able to get there and back in the course of a weekend.

If by any chance he's white then contact Echo.
