Greetings! Hope you are enjoying the summer of 2019 so far. We are halfway through the year with over 200 adoptions in place, right on target for our yearly average. So many unwanted dogs. So many dogs with issues. We ponder this a lot and one thing we so often see is that the dog doesn't get a fair chance. An unrealistic expectation is that the dog will come to its new home and just embrace the family while running around expressing gratitude for this wonderful new beginning.
