RESCUED DOGS:
FULL ADOPTION GUIDE

This article is proudly presented by
WWW.VETSURE.COM

We are all familiar with the words "A dog is for life, not just for Christmas", and we know that behind that slogan lies the unfortunate fact that many people do not realise that bringing a new dog into their home takes a huge amount of preparation, perseverance and patience. For those adopting a rescue dog, the challenges can be much greater, and it is vital for new owners to do whatever they can to ensure that their rescue dog adapts well to its new and loving home as quickly as possible.

RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!

By choosing a rescue dog, you are saving the life of a creature who depends upon humans for care and shelter. You are giving them a fresh start and a new home, and in return, you will be given unconditional love. By following the simple steps in this guide, you can make the process of rehoming your dog as smooth and stress-free as possible for the both of you.

RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!
Key Points and Advice
One of the simplest things to consider before rehoming a rescue dog is whether now is the right time for you to rescue. If you are planning a holiday, a house move, a new baby or a new job within the coming months, it might be a good idea to postpone your adoption until all of these distractions are out of the way. When a new dog comes into your life, whether a rescue or not, it is really important that you can give him your full attention at all times. Rescue dogs, in particular, can be very nervous in their new environment, and a busy household with no routine can be terrifying for some dogs.

RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!

If you do have enough time to give to a rescue dog, the next consideration should be what type of dog is right for you. Consider how much exercise you can offer your new dog, what level of dog-handling experience you have, and whether you need a dog that is comfortable with other pets or small children. For example, if you live in a busy city with small children and other pets, adopting a Border Collie that has only ever lived outside on a farm is likely to be a very bad idea!

RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!

A rescue centre can talk through all of your needs and match their available dogs to your exact requirements. Do not be afraid to take your time when choosing a rescue dog, and if you don't think there are any suitable dogs when you visit the rescue centre, do not be tempted to settle for something unsuitable, in the hope that you can "fix" the issues. It is far kinder, to the dog and to your family, to walk away and wait for the right dog for you.

RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!
Prepare your home for rescue dog!
Spending some time preparing for your dog's arrival can help him settle down as quickly as possible, and can make life a lot easier for you too. It is inevitable that you and your new pet will feel nervous when you get home on the first day, so make life easy for yourself with some forward planning.

RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!

The rescue centre should be able to advise you on what food your new dog has been eating, and it's a good idea to stick with that for a week or two at least, to avoid any upset tummies. Treats are also a good idea, as they are invaluable as rewards when teaching dogs new behaviours. Do not go overboard, though, as it is easy to overfeed dogs. Decide where they are going to eat and keep that consistent. The place where you feed him should be quiet and safe, without the distraction of other pets or children.

RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!

As well as food and drink, your dog also needs a safe space to call his own. This space is where he will sleep, but is also where he can learn to go when he wants some quiet time. Not everyone likes the idea of using a dog crate, but when used sensitively and responsibly, crates can be an effective tool in training your dog to be a balanced and happy pet. Most dogs actually love their crates and see them as their own "den". Try covering the top of the crate with a blanket for added comfort and security.

RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!

Pet insurance should be next on your list and the final things you need to buy before you bring your new dog home are a collar and lead, a plentiful supply of poop bags, and perhaps one or two dog toys. Rubber "Kongs" are great for dogs, as they are virtually indestructible and can be filled with tasty treats to keep your dog entertained.

RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!

Lastly, before you bring your new dog home, make sure that you talk about his arrival with all members of your family. It is important to explain, to children in particular, that the dog will be very nervous about coming to a new home, and will need plenty of time and space to settle in. A house full of over-excited children, or visitors dropping in to see the new addition, can be overwhelming for a dog. Explain that there will be plenty of time to get to know the new dog once he's had time to settle in.

RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!
What to Expect from the Dog on Arrival
Hopefully, you will already have spent some time with your new dog as most rescue centres will ask you to visit them several times before releasing a dog into your care. Usually, you will also be asked to take your dog for a few walks, to get to know him and to be 100% sure that you are right for each other. Even with all of this careful planning, your new dog may still be frightened by the rehoming process, and may even be travel-sick on the journey home.

RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!

Once you get home, take the dog out of the car, put him on the lead and allow him to walk around the garden briefly, to go to the toilet and to get his bearings. Then bring him into the house, and show him his bed and food and water bowls.

Make sure that your dog understands where his safe place is, so that he can go there whenever he needs to. If you are using a dog crate, it can be a good idea to feed your dog in the crate too, so that he associates the crate with the positive experience of being fed. Do not try shutting the door of the crate until the dog has come to see it as his own space.

RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!

Only feed a light meal on the first evening, whilst your dog settles down. Don't try to fuss the dog too much, and simply let him relax, whilst you sit quietly or go about your routine.

With the sensory overload that comes with entering a new home for the first time, your dog may not be particularly responsive and may not want to be stroked or handled. On the other hand, he may be wildly over-excited and try to tear around the house. Let the dog go at his own pace, but try to control the environment so that he settles as quickly as possible.

RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!
Introduction & The Beginning...
When the time comes to introduce children and other pets, it is important to take a softly-softly approach, to avoid distressing your new dog. Explain to your children that they should sit calmly on the sofa and wait for the dog to approach them. Tell them to sit quietly, without shouting or making any sudden movements. This will allow the dog to approach carefully and to assess these new and curious creatures on his own terms.

With other dogs, it can be a good idea to have the first meeting take place outdoors, ideally, take them on a walk where there is more space for each animal to feel safe in. Let the dogs introduce themselves, but keep a close eye on them, in case you need to intervene. Until the new dog is fully settled, make sure that mealtimes are closely supervised, and do not leave your rescue dog alone with your other dogs.

When introducing your new rescue dog to your cat, it can be a good idea to keep the dog on the lead, even if sitting in the lounge. That way, the cat can approach the dog and introduce itself in its own time, while you maintain full control of the dog. Always make sure that a cat has a safe space to escape to, if the introductions do not go perfectly.

SHELTERS, RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!
Building a Bond with Your Dog
It can be tempting to try to rush the process of bonding with your dog, by constantly stroking him or even picking him up. To a dog, all of this can be quite intimidating. It is far better to take things slowly and allow the dog to come to you, just by spending time in the same room together, sitting quietly and speaking gently, the dog will soon come to realise there is nothing to be fearful of.

Once you have got over the first hurdles of the dog being confident in your presence, you can work on building that special relationship through a variety of techniques. It is important that your dog sees you as a provider of fun, so play freely and enthusiastically with him. However, be sure to let your dog know that you control when and how play time goes, this is important for training a well-mannered dog. Other things that can help to build trust include regular grooming and handling. Take this very slowly, and allow the dog to get used to you touching all parts of his body, including ears, feet, tail, head and muzzle. This can be a very long process with many rescue dogs, but with time, it will build a solid relationship between you.

SHELTERS, RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!
Housetraining
It is inevitable that there will be a few "accidents" when introducing a new dog to your home, but there are ways to make sure that these are kept to the minimum. Try to ensure that your dog is let outside to go to the toilet on a regular basis, and particularly before bedtime. Tune into when the dog is trying to tell you that he needs to go outside, he may whine, or sit by the door, for example. A crate can help with housetraining too, as dogs do not like to soil their sleeping area, so he will learn quickly to go before bedtime and to strengthen his control, to allow him to last until morning. If you do have any accidents, avoid cleaning products that contain ammonia as these can actually encourage your dog to pee in that place again. Try white vinegar instead.

SHELTERS, RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!
Establish Daily Routines
Dogs are creatures of habit, and like things to follow a routine. By providing consistency, you will help him understand what his new life involves and he will grow into a relaxed pooch. Try to walk the dog at the same times each day, and keep mealtimes regular too. Do not move the dog's bed around, as he needs to be sure of where that safe space is.

It is easy to cut a rescue dog some slack at the beginning, telling yourself that he is just settling in. However, by allowing bad habits, such as jumping up, pulling on the lead, or using his mouth when playing, you could be doing more harm than good. These behaviours soon become entrenched, and it is much harder to train bad behaviour out of a dog than to train good behaviour in. Dogs usually learn things very quickly, so with some patience and calm perseverance, you should see the results of any training undertaken before long.

SHELTERS, RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!
Veterinary Care for Your Rescue Dog
It is very important to try to get your new friend used to visits to your veterinary practice. The veterinary team need to be established as friends and associated with positive experiences as much as possible, not just times of illness. With this in mind, ask your veterinary team whether they would be happy for you to pop in for a free introduction, just an opportunity for your dog to visit the practice and be pampered by the staff, not examined, prodded and poked! So, if a veterinary examination or vaccination is due, maybe do this on a separate occasion. In an ideal world, your dog should have visited the vets on several occasions for a good pampering and maybe a treat before any more "practical" visits are required. Most caring veterinary teams will be happy to oblige with this as they know how important it is for dogs to feel comfortable coming into the vets - particularly rescue dogs who may have had previous bad experiences.

SHELTERS, RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!
Conclusion
Dogs can find themselves in a rescue centre for all sorts of reasons. It's easy to write off these animals as being "too difficult" or "problem dogs". However, with some forward planning and plenty of patience and gentle, positive handling, a rescue dog can be every bit as rewarding as any other dog, if not more so! If you are considering bringing a new dog into your life, why not consider adopting a rescue dog?

Keep in mind the truth, that any adoption or rescuing of puppy or a dog should cost some money.

"THE RESCUED DOG PROBLEM SOLVER"
at WWW.DOGWISE.COM


The tides of dog ownership are changing, and thanks to Hollywood A Listers like George Clooney and Sandra Bullock and music icons like Justin Bieber and Taylor Swift, animal rescue has become as fashionable as the latest Valentino or Armani. Millions of ordinary Americans heroes one and all have opened their hearts and homes to rescue dogs, and fewer abandoned pets are euthanized in the U.S. than ever before. And still, a look at HSUS statistics reminds us how far we have to go: an estimated three to four million pets are euthanized annually, a very significant improvement from the 1980s when the number was closer to sixteen million.

To keep America's adoption trend moving forward and to guarantee that rescued dogs stay in their new forever homes, Tracy Libby's The Rescue Dog Problem Solver seeks to make the story of every adopted dog a predestined success. While most dogs wind up in shelters due to no fault of their own, many rescue dogs develop unwanted behaviors while living with their previous owners. To assure their success with their adopted dogs, rescuers must be prepared to handle and confidently resolve behavioral problems that arise through proven positive training methods. This eye-opening problem-solving guide, filled with empowering stories of rescued dogs that defied the odds, is dedicated to the success of every rescuer and his happy, health companion dog.

INSIDE THE BOOK:
50 ways rescuers can overcome potential challenges with their adoptive dogs

200 training and behavior tips for a well-mannered dog

25 secrets to unraveling common behavior issues, from house-soiling and escaping the yard to biting, barking, and hyperactivity

A dozen heartwarming stories of real-life rescue dogs and their adoptive parents Countless ways dog lovers can raise awareness about animal rescue and responsible pet ownership in their communities and found enjoyable.

"HOW TO FOSTER DOGS"
at WWW.DOGWISE.COM


You Can Build a Bridge to a Better Life for Dogs! Pat Miller's How to Foster Dogs is the first book on the market to deal specifically with the care and training needs of foster dogs and how the fostering process works when done through a formal arrangement with an organization like a shelter or breed rescue group. Fostering dogs involves caring on a temporary basis for puppies and dogs who for whatever reason cannot be housed with their owners, shelters or breed rescue organizations. Many shelters now have formal fostering programs for dogs who are too young, unhealthy or have behavioral issues and therefore have to be housed with a foster family or face euthanasia. The book also covers informal fostering situations when families move or have some disruption and a friend or relative agrees to care for the dog temporarily.

YOU WILL LEARN:
About the various organizations that seek the services of foster families for dogs.

What a typical formal arrangement between a shelter and a foster parent involves including expectations of care and training, and the support you can expect from the shelter including covering expenses and other legal issues.

About the most common behavioral issues facing foster dogs and puppies including fear and separation anxiety, a likely undeserved reputation for what may have been perceived as "dominance," and irritating but usually solvable problems such as house soiling, chewing and barking.

How to successfully integrate a foster dog into your home if you own other dogs.

While it is possible that you will end up adopting the dog yourself, learn how to prepare to say goodbye to your foster best friend knowing that you have done your best to build a bridge to a better future for him or her.

FOSTERING THE DOG:
PROS vs CONS

This article is proudly presented by
WWW.DOGSBESTLIFE.COM

If you knew more about what fostering dogs or puppies entails, and the benefits it provides, is it something you would consider? The primary goal of fostering is to temporarily home and prepare a puppy or dog for adoption. As with everything in life, there are pros and cons.

THIS DOG ADOPTION INFOGRAPHICS (c) by WWW.DOGSBESTLIFE.COM!!! - RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY

Which breed, mix, age, size, or sex would you be most comfortable with. Are you willing to take a senior dog? Would you consider a puppy or dog with a disability or health problem? How does your family feel about fostering dogs?

SHELTERS, RESCUED DOGS, ADOPT A DOG or A PUPPY!!!

If you have a pet, how would he or she react to another animal moving in on their turf? Remember, everyone should be comfortable with this decision. For how long are you willing to make the commitment? Some fosters prefer short-term commitments. Others, for however long it takes. Would you be able to give up the animal, especially knowing it would be going to a loving home. Would you be willing to adopt your foster, if no forever home is their fate?

FOSTERING, ADOPTION, RESCUED DOGS AND PUPPY

There will be changes in your routine - most likely for the better. You will exercise more! You may have to provide the food. There are rescues that occasionally help with the food expenses. The most common complaint heard is how attached a foster has become to their animal. Usually this is made from less experienced fosters. Those who have done it before, have an easier time "letting go." They are happy their foster has found a loving family, forever home. There is also another side to the attachment complaint. It is not unheard of for the foster parent to decide to keep their ward. Everyone is a winner!

FOSTERING, ADOPTION, RESCUED DOGS AND PUPPY

The majority of shelter dogs are mid-size or larger, and/or mix breeds. If there is a specific breed you prefer, check with rescues of that breed. They are overloaded, and are looking for foster homes too. Some of the animals in rescues and shelters have health issues, disabilities, or behavior problems. Would this be a problem for you? There are fosters who prefer to take on the tender, loving care of a senior, or terminally ill animal. They want to offer them the best quality of life, in the short time they may have left. They, without question, are extraordinary people. Kudos to them!

FOSTERING, ADOPTION, RESCUED DOGS AND PUPPY

The animal you foster may require basic obedience or housebreaking training. Are you willing to invest the necessary time to make them more adoptable? You most likely will have to pass a background check and home inspection. It's gratifying to know you have met the shelter or rescues standards, and qualify to provide a temporary home. Most shelters/rescues will take care of necessary veterinary and medication expenses. Astonishingly, there fosters, who absorb those expenses as part of their responsibilities. They too deserve kudos! By fostering, it will be one less animal destroyed, and you will be creating a vacancy so the shelter/rescue can offer another puppy or dog a roof over their head, and food in their belly, until they find their forever home.

Bottom Line.
You will earn the unconditional love and appreciation of the animal you have opened your heart and home to, for however long that may be. You will have the rewarding feeling of saving at least one puppy or dog, from being destroyed simply because there are so many out there, that need our help.

SHELTER DOG MYTHS
SHELTER DOGS TOP MYTHS

This article is proudly presented by
WWW.CESARSWAY.COM
and
Cesar Milan

1. They are in the shelter because something is wrong with them
This myth comes from common misunderstandings about how dogs wind up in shelters in the first place. The perception is that dogs end up in animal shelters because they were strays, they were seized in police raids, or they were aggressive. So, they will tend to run away, they will have emotional problems because of how they were treated, or they are just vicious. But, in reality, a big reason that dogs wind up in shelters is because they were given up by their owners for reasons that have nothing to do with the dog's behavior. A lot of families give up their dogs because they can't afford them anymore, or they are forced to move to a place where they can not have dogs or, worse, can not have a dog of a particular breed.

SHELTER DOG MYTHS

Dogs also end up in shelters when expectations and reality don't meet, that little Dalmatian puppy grew up into a large, energetic dog living in a studio apartment, or that lap dog that was so cute in the pet store became uncontrollable and dominant because its cuteness earned nothing but affection, affection, affection, so the dog never had any rules, boundaries, or limitations. The only thing inherently wrong with a shelter dog is that it's in a shelter and not with a loving family.

SHELTER DOG MYTHS
2. You will never know their history
While this may be true, it's not a bad thing, because that shelter dog will never really know its own history, either, especially not once it's brought into a loving home with good Pack Leaders. Dogs don't dwell on the past, and we should not either, especially when it comes to dogs. There are shelters that offer a glimpse of the dog's story, but that's not necessarily a good thing because, again, humans like to dwell in the past. Whether the dog was abused by children, thrown out of a car, rescued from a dog-fighting ring, or whatever traumatic event she went through, it's past. Dogs live in the moment. A dog's past will only be a problem if you constantly dwell on what happened before the shelter. The dog forgot about it once it was not happening anymore, and you can help the dog forget as well by not triggering anything that resembles that early trauma.

SHELTER DOG MYTHS
3. They may have a disease
Yes, they may, kennel cough being particularly common. However, most shelters nowadays will also provide you with a voucher for a subsidized or no-cost first vet visit, and the more devastating diseases have vaccines that are routinely provided by the shelter, like the DHPP (Distemper/Hepatitis/Parvovirus/Parainfluenza) shot, as well as a rabies vaccination. Shelters also make sure that dogs are free of fleas and worms, and they provide spaying and neutering as part of the adoption process.

SHELTER DOG MYTHS
4. They are not purebred
Unless you are a breeder or are looking for a professional show dog, mixed breed dogs are a much better choice. They are generally free of genetic or behavioral problems that are typical of some pure breeds, like hip dysplasia in German shepherds or incessant digging by terriers. Mixed breed dogs are also just much more interesting looking, since they do not follow the strict standards required for purebreds. Finally, if you live in an area with breed specific laws (BSL) that ban certain dogs, like pit bulls or Rottweilers, having that other identifiable breed in the mix can avoid issues with your dog being outlawed.

SHELTER DOG MYTHS
5. They are too old
Adopting a puppy can be an attractive idea, you get to start out with a four-legged blank slate, and raise it to adulthood. However, people often focus on the "cute" part and forget the reality of raising a puppy: it can be just as intense and difficult as raising a child, and it is also a full time job. You can also never be absolutely sure with a puppy what you will wind up with as an adult. You may want a medium size dog and the shelter thought that the puppy you have adopted was mostly beagle. What happens, then, when the other part turns out to be a St. Bernard or Great Dane and the dog you expected to weigh 30 pounds tops out at 150? And don't discount senior dogs, which are those aged 7 years or more. Senior dogs can be ideal for lower-energy households, or in situations where you don't want to commit for ten or fifteen whole years but still want a loving companion.
