Generally, when people decide to adopt or rescue a dog, the first thought that comes to mind is that cute puppy
they saw in a pet store or happily playing in the their neighbor's front yard.
There is no doubt that a healthy young puppy can be a wonderful addition to any household. And a lively, already
house trained, ready to go adult pooch can be just the perfect addition for a busy household looking for a 'ready

will stay with you for the remainder of your life. Lucky dog, lucky you. :)
