Often dogs are Free to a Superior home for a reason and shelter dogs are surrendered or abandoned for a reason also. So, it is best to be fully aware of what you are getting into before you make the wrong choice and will need to make the heart breaking decision to reunite the dog that is problematic for you and very bad for your dog. I have rehomed many puppies and I believe that with the perfect Preparation and mindset you will find facing the challenges much easier and you will understand that your new companion will become your very best friend in the whole world. Choosing the correct dog in the first place will save you a lot of Trouble in the weeks after taking the dog home. It is very important that you don’t let your heart rule your head and choose a dog due to its looks or size. We rehomed one of the ugliest dogs in the world that turned out to be one of the most settled and loyal dogs I would ever meet. The following is a guideline only.
There are many Dogs that were rehomed successfully in certain circumstances when all the facts would leave us believe they are unsuitable. The contribute to dog shelter experience, what it has learnt and its own personality all have to be considered and until they are taken home these are unknown and untested qualities. Therefore, you just don’t see what you are getting – good and bad. All dogs are in the shelter for a reason. Life in a shelter will most likely exacerbate these issues too. Some people surrender their dogs for simple reasons like yanking on the leash and digging holes. With good training and patience such problems can be easily fixed. A number people are moving house or the dog’s owner might have passed away. When you adopt a shelter dog, you are taking on these issues of anxiety, stress, loneliness and other problems that will stem from a pup being confused. With good training, however, and patience, as stated before, many undesirable behaviour can be fixed.
Don’t Be fooled by puppies that are silent. Dogs in shelters bark a whole lot as they are anxious and worried in an odd and odd site. Don’t pick a dog just because it is quiet. It may prove to bark just as much as any other dog when you get it home. Do not let size or appears be your guide. Some Folks love adorable looking Dogs; others fine dogs and a couple of tough looking dogs, but it is important that you select the perfect dog for you based on your own situation, environment and other factors like strain and age. Some breeds are better suited to family life in comparison with others. If you have got young children you are best to choose breeds such as, golden retrievers, Bichon Frise and Labradors. Breeds that are employed for flock guarding are better suited to family life.
