You are right, one of my most loyal dog was a Shelter dog. He was the next best thing to a dream dog. My sister seen the skinny dog when we brought him home from the Shelter, and told me to take the scrawny thing back. He wouldn't eat and his coat was so thin, could see thru to his skin.. I took him to the Vet to ask their advice because I was afraid he would die on me. . They told me his natural eating instincts would kick in when he knew he had to eat to survive, and they told me to keep him because he was a nice dog. I took their advice and kept him and he did eat and was a beautiful dog He became a loving and a full furred family member and grew up with the kids and lived till he was 16 years. Just say he was the right fit for our family. He is a part of my most favorite memories. Guess we were just lucky to find him. I know we will never find another like him, but hopefully our next dog will be equally as loyal and loving.
My husband and I plan on going in a couple of weeks or so? First we will hit the Shelters and Pet Adoption centers and go from there I think when we put our mind to it, we will just do it, we really don't want to be put on a waiting list, but we will see. We will give Shelters a try first. Wish us luck. LoL, I know I've been saying that for a while, but one day it will happen.
