I've had shelter dogs all my life and each one is unique. Some shelter dogs are pure bred, but most are mixed breeds, which gives them a personality all their own with traits from different breeds blended together. What I've found most interesting is how shelter dogs are SO eager to please you. It's like they know what you did for them and are eternally grateful.
This is a great story of a dog who was about to be euthinized, but was saved and is now going to the Big Show at Westminster! http://blog.petflow.com/this-dog-was-almost-euthanized-but-now-hes-heading-to-the-westminster-dog-show/?utm_source=ilmd&utm_medium=PetFlow&utm_campaign=ilmdwestminster
