I think any time is a great time to adopt a dog! Since October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, I thought it would be fun to see if you can guess which of the following dogs were once homeless. A few were even on the list to be euthanized. (All of these dogs are in their forever homes and are treasured members of their families.)
If you want to do a little research before making your guess, just click on the dogs’ names to read their stories.
Which of these dogs were rescues? All of them!
The next time you hear someone say “I would adopt except I really want a ____ (puppy, specific breed, therapy dog, service dog. etc.)” Please show them this post. All kinds of dogs end up homeless, but they can make excellent pets, companions, therapy and service dogs!
Have you ever been surprised to learn that a dog was once in a shelter? We would love to hear about it!
