How to find the right one for you

Every year there are 10 million dogs in shelters across the United States. Of these, about 25 %, or 3 million get adopted. For many dog lovers, shelters are an ideal place to find a pet: they're saving a life, spending less money, and getting lots to choose from. This book explores every stage of adopting a dog, from deciding if a shelter dog is right for you, to tips for starting life together on the right paw. Stories of successful adoptions punctuate the text, and make it clear that, with a little wise advice from this book, a shelter dog will become your best friend.
