Do you know the amount of adopted dogs that are returned to shelters? it's an astonishingly high
number! Make sure to do your homework when you decide to adopt. It's not
a small or easy task. Be ready to ask
an expert about a certain breed, and DON'T pick a dog on a whim because
he or she is cute and lovable, or because your child wants a dog. Have
you seen a puppy Husky? Hard to find any cuter than that. THINK about
the puppy phase being over, and picture a strong, big adult dog. It's A
LOT of dog to deal with... You need to know that before you adopt. It's
heart-breaking for a dog to return to the shelter, just because you
didn't think it through. Be responsible. Take your time. Be open to a
breed, to a senior dog, a mutt... Inspire others to do the right thing!
Nathalie Dubois rescued Polo. She knew the breed. Nathalie knew how much work it is to have a puppy husky that going to turn into a big and strong-willed dog. I applaud her for that. And, the reward is tremendous.
