Dog adoption is awesome and if you do it, great! But our local shelters are flooded with pit bulls and other Amstaff knockoffs. No thanks. I would consider an older dog of the GSD or Lab variety, but recently lost one lab to age and another is feeling her years pretty hard now. I think the next will be a puppy so I have a little more time between the heartaches.
I get that. I like the idea of the hotel putting up dogs for adoption, but the real issue is people need to spay or neuter their pets. There really are too many little animals out there that need homes.
I wish they’d make spaying and neutering free, it’s gotten so doggone (pardon the pun) expensive.
We have friends who have adopted three pitties and they are all terrific pups! They even sat with me wile their picture was taken (I was playing Puppy Santa!)
Hey, if your Lab is feeling her age due to arthritis, my sister’s kennel rescue is going through the same thing, and her vet just put her on gabapentin, 100 mg. just prior to bed. I’m on it 400 mg. x4 daily for my various incurables, and it does work well. I think staying at a hotel and adopting one is a great idea here.
