Part 3: What Type Of Dog Will You Get?
If there is a certain breed you have in mind, get in touch with the rescue organization for that breed, or a national club. Just like children from abused homes, abandoned and abused dogs will have nightmares rooted in their past. Much like children, they will demand a lot of love and attention.
Rescue dogs will thank you with a simple wag of the tail, a lick, or the gesture of their head on your knee. Once your dog has found a place in your home, they may never leave. Even once they have passed on, they will forever hold a small part of your heart.
