Why Are These Dogs Abandoned?
Trista was rescued from the Carson Animal Shelter
There are many reasons why a dog ends up at an animal shelter. Sometimes the original owner buys a dog on impulse, such as a cute little puppy at the pet store. The owner is not prepared for the usual problems such as housebreaking and chewing. The owner may have bought the dog for a child who may be too young to be responsible for the dog. Other reasons for abandoning a dog include moving, inability to handle behavioral problems and the challenge of arranging care when the owner travels.
Remember, when you adopt a dog you are committing to the entire life of your dog.
A dog can live 15 years or more. If you are ready for this commitment, your life will be enriched in unimaginable ways!
