Thank you! I will return to this page when we are finally ready to get a dog. I'm inclined to adopt from a shelter or rescue organization.


Here here! I think everyone should check their area shelters before buying a dog from a pet shop or breeder.


Goldie is a shelter dog. I was a shelter volunteer, she was there, week after week. I kept thinking "Dang, this is SUCH a good dog - why doesn't someone take her home?"

Best decision I ever made.

This weekend there was a special adopt a dog day at our local shelter and we went. There wasn't a dog there that was the right fit for us but it did totally solidfy our decision to get a dog. I am giddy about this.

I devoured these links you provided full of helpful information for a new pet adopter. We'll keep looking at our shelter (called a Human Society in Canada) and if no luck we have a breed in mind and have made some contact with breeders today actually.

Then I will be stalking you and this site for all the info I'll need to know.
