22 of 22 people found the following review helpful By Ann Herrington, President, Media Parnters for Pets on December 7, 1999
This is the best book I've ever seen about shelter dogs. As a rescue organization that works with the county shelter and sees the day to day plight of shelter animals, part of what we try to do is educate the public on responsible pet ownership and what to expect, especially when getting a shelter animal who has been through so much trauma already. This book addresses all the issues someone will face and how to deal with them. Everything from choosing the dog, preparing your home for him, acclimating him to your other pets, handling him, especially in the early days in your home, health, training, etc. Every person that adopts a shelter dog should get one of these books. It's like "follow-up" care the doctor sends home with you. Everyone should have it and our organization recommends this book to everyone! Thank you Mr. Christiansen!

This book covers the basics of adopting a shelter dog. It is heavy on trying to convince the reader to adopt - a significant part of the book is "testimonials" from owners who have adopted. I expected more information on rehoming and reorienting the adopted dog. The book is somewhat amateurishly put together - not too well organized, only black & white photos.

Great pictures, easy reading...this wonderful book offers a realistic, positive view of choosing one of the most grateful pets you'll ever own. This book was instrumental in helping my husband and me decide to adopt a shelter dog through German Shepherd Rescue. Share a copy with your local animal shelter--mine loved it.
