"I remember thinking I like to take this dog home," says Carole Lucia, of Fallbrook, Calif., talking about a part border collie named Riley that she discovered at a shelter operated by a rescue group. "He was chewing on a rawhide toy, and I just gently pulled it away from him to see how he react. He just looked at me and wasn aggressive at all." This was important to Lucia and her husband because they had one child and were planning to have more. Riley turned out to be a child friendly but Nike Sportswear Jogger Pants high energy dog that needed some training. He is now a beloved member of their family.

"Rusty face grabbed me," says Goryl, who was able to walk the year and a half old dog for a few minutes. The shelter workers encouraged him to take Rusty home for a weekend.

Many shelters will spay or neuter dogs before they adopted and will check for any health problems. As the new owner, however, it wise to take your dog to a veterinarian for a complete checkup soon after adoption. "Some shelter dogs can get kennel cough, which is a virus passed from dog to dog," says Kelly Dilday, a technician at the Animal Medical Clinic in Portland, Ore. "They might also have some abdominal parasites."

Goryl adopted Rusty, and the two have been happy companions ever since. For your shelter adoption to be as successful as Goryl here are some tips to keep in mind:"It difficult to get a sense of a dog temperament in five minutes," says Mark Hanks, DVM of Kindred Spirits Veterinary Clinic in Orrington, ME. He advises to spend as much time with adoption candidates as the shelter will allow. "If a dog is standoffish or snappy, it might not have been socialized," says Dr. Hanks, who adds that most dogs get used to being around humans in the first 20 weeks of life. After that, socialization is much more difficult. Obtain as much information from the shelter as possible concerning the dog previous owners to find out if there is a history of behavior problems.

If possible, bring every member of your family to meet the shelter dog you want to adopt, to ensure the dog reacts well to everyone. Lucia even brought her other dog to meet Riley to see if the two dogs would get along. They did. Keep in mind that a formerly mistreated dog may react with aggression or fear upon meeting people who somehow remind the dog of its previous abusers."More and more shelters are filled with animals because people want to help, but they underestimate their ability both financially and time wise to take care of a pet," Nike T Shirt Orange

Since your dog hasn mastered speaking in words yet, you may wonder how you can tell if your dog is feeling okay. It turns out, many of the clues can come from just looking at your dog and reading his body language.

Many shelters work with local veterinarians. This can be a benefit to you because first visits of recently adopted shelter dogs may be free or low cost, Dilday says. Ask your shelter to see if it has such an arrangement. If it does, take advantage of these visits as a way to become familiar with veterinarians in your area and to find one you like.

It turns out, many of the clues can come from just looking at your dog and reading his body language. "I was a little worried because I hadn had a dog in 15 years," says Goryl, a retired business executive. He was also afraid that each and every dog at the shelter would tug at his heartstrings.

Another way to make sure all goes well is to look for a breed that fits your lifestyle. If you have children, for instance, look for a dog with a calm, unflappable nature.

If you live in a small apartment, don get a high energy dog that will bounce off the walls.
