When it comes to the idea of dog shelters, there are a lot of ideas thrown around regarding the sorts of dogs that are available for adoption there. Today, we look at some of the breeds that can be found there.
What a lot of people do not seem to realize is the fact that there are full-on purebred dogs that are available for adoption through shelters. Here are some of the more common breeds that are found in such places:
Boxers are a rather popular dog breed that often finds its home in dog shelters. There are a lot of misconceptions about them regarding their suitability for families. The truth is, if you look beyond their high energy, you will obtain a highly trainable animal that is quite gentle once they sort out their excess energy.
Beagles are a highly popular breed of dog. As such, there is quite a surplus of them that can be found in a lot of shelters. It seems that a lot of Beagle owners are swept away by their love for this dog breed that before they realize it, they have puppies. The puppies are often sold at high prices so no one buys them in the end. They end up landing in dog shelters, sadly.
If there was any dog that came highly useful, it would be a Labrador Retriever. They are smart, compassionate, and highly trainable animals. There is always a demand for them as service animals. While there are those that do professionally breed them, they still manage to find their way in dog shelters.
So as you can see, you are not limited to mixed dog breeds when you go through a dog shelter. If you’re ever aiming to adopt a pet from a shelter, be assured in the knowledge that there will be a great many purebred dogs waiting there to find their homes. What are your ideas regarding the breeds that are found in a shelter?
