Adopting a dog or puppy from the shelter is a noble endevor, but not always an easy task. More often than not, dogs end up in a shelter/rescue setting as a result of behavioral issues that may not be initally apparent. Knowing what to look for and how to assess a dog can save a lot of future heartache and reduces the risk of your new dog being returned to the shelter.
