Finding Your Ideal Rescue Dog

Active families may want higher energy dogs while low key households do better with mellower couch potato breeds.  

Energy Evaluation 

Apartments need smaller low shedding dogs while houses with yards can provide more space for larger breeds to roam.  

Size Considerations   

Timid pups require more socialization and confidence building than outgoing dogs who take training in stride.    

Training Time  

Observe interactions to ensure the dog's affectionate, playful or independent nature meshes with family.  

Personality Matching

Puppies pose more demands than adult dogs but seniors require care accommodations.     

Age Appropriateness 

Review background to anticipate and address potential lasting anxiety or medical issues.  

Past History   

Shelter staff insight ensures you find both your perfect match and provide them their forever home!
