New Resource for Information on Adopting a Rescue Dog

"Adopting a Shelter Dog - The First Seven Days", is a free ebook co-authored by veterinarian Dr. Susan Wright and Misty Weaver. This 100-page ebook shares tips and information on how potential owners can effectively prepare their home and themselves, select the right dog to match their lifestyle, and ease the transition from shelter to home. It also has some really great stories from real adopters sharing the trials and the joys of bringing a rescue dog into their family.

Misty wrote, "We wanted to help potential adopters realize how rewarding adopting a rescue dog can be and to help make adoption a bit easier. We do agree that at times it can be challenging but the overall experience is incredibly satisfying. I interviewed a lot of shelters and learned that one of their largest challenges was helping less experienced dog owners get started on the right foot with their adoption. I wanted to try and do something to help, so we wrote this book. Now people who are interested in rescuing a dog can find information on adopting a rescue dog in one place."
