We are now into October and it is Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month.  Adopting a dog rather than getting one from a pet store can be a great thing to do for your life and your pup’s.  Many pet stores get their dogs from puppy mills where dogs may be mistreated or abused.  Even if you are looking for a purebred dog of a certain breed, check around.  One of the local shelters may have one that got picked up as a stray.  In fact 25% of dogs in shelters are purebred.  Shelters get between 5 and 7 million dogs per year, and the majority have to be euthanized.   Give one a home today!
