Video: Tips for adopting a dog

“. . . Adopting an adult dog is a really great option as well. Adult dogs often times are already house trained and we have a really good idea of what their behavior and their temperament is. So it’s a little easier to make that fit with a family. . . .

“Don’t forget that there are lots of dogs for adoption through your local animal shelter, animal control facility, and breed rescue organizations. The shelter staff is there to help you make the right selection.”

-Dr. Julie Dinnage, Association of Shelter Veterinarians
