Adoption on your mind?

Been thinking about adopting a dog? We think that’s absolutely wonderful. But maybe you’re at a loss as to what comes next. Well, for one, I bet you already know that you can contact your local animal shelter or look them up online. But from there, what happens?

Today’s article is very helpful for questions you may have about the shelter and while you’re at the shelter. For example, when you go to the shelter feel free to speak with the workers about the particular dog you may be interested in. You can ask them if the dog is high energy, or skittish around people. Since they have been interacting with the dog for a while now, they should have a good idea.

In addition, you can also ask how the dog is with other dogs. At the shelter the dogs are often grouped together in kennels, so the workers will have had time to observe the dog you are particularly interested in with other dogs.

So feel free to ask the workers as many questions as you want. That’s one of the things they are there for. Also, don’t forget you can have the opportunity to hold your dog and see how it responds to you.

For more advice, take a look at today’s article.
