Question by suzy49: Do you have a great dog you’d to share?
The statistics surrounding the millions of homeless dogs in shelters today are staggering, and heartbreaking.

Would you like to help us encourage more adoptive families to come forward, so that more abandoned and abused dogs and puppies have a chance at a better life?

You can encourage others to consider adoption (you’d be surprised how many people never even think about it!) by sharing your positive adoption experience with them.

Please go to http://www.the-puppy-dog-place.com/puppy-dog-adoption-stories.html and submit your …and include a photo if you can.

Your may help a lonely dog find his or her new forever home. Thanks!

PS If you have an adoption that didn’t work out. Tell us what happened and why you think it turned out that way. Things can be learned even from negative experiences .

we rescued a basset hound from the pound . his is: he was atacked by a coyote and tossed in the pound he was there for 2 months when the pound was going to put him down . then we found out about him on is last day. we felt he was really special because are golden retreiver had passed away 3 days before we got him. and the adoption fee was only $ 50 and they nutered him chiped him, did all his surgery and he came with a dog bed. and we could not belive he was only $ 50. but he is a male basset hound . about 1.5 years old and we named him hoover and he is such a sweety.

This is the best dog shelter commercial ever! If only every dog in a shelter could do this… I bet adoptions would go up for sure! 🙂 Enjoy!

    Our Beagle Buddy was from a backyard breeder originally. When the woman couldn’t sell the pups, she started giving them away. The unlucky family that got Buddy had other dogs. They crate trained buddy, but within a month and a half Buddy was surrendered to a shelter in Eastern Oregon. The paperwork said that Buddy was teaching their other dogs bad habits and couldn’t be left alone during the day. (This is not unusual for Beagles, they hate to be left alone) He was adopted out again and shortly, returned again, this time with no surrender paperwork. After a few weeks Buddy was brought from Eastern Oregon to Corvallis because this gave him a better chance of being adopted out. This was a correct assumption. When I saw Buddy in the cage, there was an immediate connection. Although he wouldn’t come to the front of the cage, I felt as if I had known him a long time. When we asked to see him, the assistant told us he was a little timid. As soon as Buddy walked through the door of the meet and greet room he curled up in my lap and licked my face for all he was worth. He then went on to endear himself to both children and my husband. He is a gentle sweet soul who is only intimidated by other very large active dogs. He spent two weeks recovering from his long traumatic experience sleeping non stop but is now acting like the fantastic dog he is. He’s smart as a whip, knows how to find anything we hide for him, loves leg bone sections from the meat department, slides on his belly to be “sneaky” when trying to come near the table when we eat, he loves long walks, playing “chase” with the kids, curling up in our laps, giving kisses, sleeping the day away in my husbands office and bacon is definitely his favorite treat of all time. He learned our version of “beg” (sitting and lifting one paw) in two minutes and now does it constantly. He doesn’t use his voice very much, but every night he jumps onto each childs bed and kisses them before coming into our room and disappearing under our covers at our feet to sleep. We love Buddy!
