|I love Flat Coated Retrievers ... they are a GREAT breed. But finding one in rescue?? Not likely at all and even less likely that you'll find one that has been well cared for, socialized, has no major issues, etc. If this is a breed you truly want, you should seek out reputable breeders who may have retired adults, returned dogs, or grown-out young adults available.
I think anyone going the rescue route with uncommon breeds should be open-minded to mixes and dogs that have the right temperament over what breed they are. IMO if they want the true representation of everything the breed should have, you're much, much, much more likely to find that with a reputable (using that word to cover every quality) breeder than a rescue.
