When choosing to adopt a puppy, you have several dogs to choose from, such as pure breed’s like Labrador’s, Poodles, Grey hounds, British bulldogs, Doberman, golden retrievers, great Danes, Dalmatians and many more. Well, sometimes just like with people dogs aren’t instantly bbffs so to speak, and it can take time and patience for everyone to adjust. The responsibilities of pet ownership are also those of a financial aspect, so when adopting any dog, whether it be one or two, please make sure you are financially ready for those possible emergencies that pop up, and they DO pop up.
We pride ourselves on the quality of loving dogs we rescue while working with shelters saving the bullies (and sometimes non-bullies) off of death row. Humans aren’t habituated to their new family member and the dog is getting adjusted to this new life. This is a very tough question because I’m personally involved in rescue but my love of dogs and the individual breeds makes me also a prime candidate for a pure bred.
Dog owners tend to have a lot of misconceptions about rescue groups and animal control, and what their job is in society. You need to make sure that you and your family are totally committed to taking care of your new pet. Recently a good friend of mine wanted to pull the plug and adopt a dog for the family.
There will always be foster dogs that are more difficult than others. There are roughly between 6 and 8 million pets, namely dogs and cats, put into shelters annually. However, even if the people giving the cash are doing good deeds, it is much more honorable to also devote your time to the dogs as they stay at the dog center.
A few weeks ago, I got my daily email loaded with photos of all the dogs and cats sitting in my two largest local animal control facilities. Pets from shelters often come with a reputation of being difficult to keep and train. For those who questioned our commitment to local dogs, our top priority is always to homeless and displaced pets in Greater Portland, as well as our state.
