Are you ready to share your life with a canine companion? In exchange for a huggable, lovable, life-long friend are you willing and able to provide proper food, shelter, training, health care and time? What kind of dog do you want - big dog, little dog, long-coated, short-coated, puppy, adult, purebred, mixed breed? Adopting a dog successfully means taking all these things and more into consideration, and then looking for the dog that fits the bill. Adopting a Dog provides the support and resources you'll need to find the dog for yourself and your family. It tells you what to expect from shelters, rescue groups and others who rehome dogs; it helps you decide on a type of dog; it fills you in on your new pet's basic needs; it gives training and health care tips. Adopting a Dog will prepare you for the love you have to give a dog and the love you'll get in return.
