What are of advantages of adopting a grown dog from a shelter?

Choose a Shelter Dog

There are a number of good reasons for adopting a grown dog from a shelter. Before you select your pooch, you'll be able to get a good idea about her size, health, and personality. Many reputable shelters now offer programs to train and socialize the canines, cutting out some of the legwork for you. Rather than paying the costly price of purchasing a dog from a breeder, you will often pay a reasonable adoption fee. And the best reason of all to adopt is that you will be saving a dog's life and giving her a new home.

Thank you...Thank you for encouraging people to adopt from shelters and rescue groups. "DON'T BREED OR BUY WHILE SHELTER ANIMALS DIE."

Please encourage people to spay or neuter their pets. Doing so will decrease the number of unwanted animals being euthanized.
