German Shepherd Mix    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Needs Vaccinations, Fearful/Anxious 

    With deep regret, I have to rehome my dog. He's a five and a half year old Siberian husky, German shepard mix, good with kids and other dogs. Has some separation anxiety, but is the biggest baby I've ever seen. I have to move and unfortunately cannot take him with me. I would love to see him go to a home with a family, and plenty of space to run around and get his exercise. I'm asking a rehoming fee of $175.00 to ensure he goes to someone who is serious about ensuring a quality life. He's my special buddy, and I hate doing this. I'm currently located in east bethel, willing to bring him to you, so I can see where he will be living. Pm for ... (Read More)more information please. (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious,
 Incontinent 

    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] Buckshot also has IVDD and does is not able to walk. He is a chocolate double dapple. He injured his back in mid-March and has had electro acupuncture treatments and chiropractic treatments with very little success. He is a very sweet dog and loves to cuddle. He loves kids but does not like when people argue. He is a sensitive soul. He HATES thunder storms and other loud noises. He loves his squeaker squeakers - mostly mutilating them and sometimes talks back to them. He can say 'I Love You' and loves cheese. He does wear diapers but hates wearing them and needs to be expressed. We also have a ... (Read More)wheelchair for him. He needs someone who can give him the attention and longer life that he so deserves! I used to take him to the elementary school and the kids would read to him. He loved it!! He's not big on car rides and prefers the back seat unless you're driving slow with the window open. He likes baby carrots and raspberries too. He is a very vocal dog and will often act like he's talking to us. We would like to be able to stay in contact with whomever takes him. We don't want any money for adoption fees - we just want someone to love him as much as we do. If we can't find someone this week (09/13/14-09/20/14) we may have to put him down and I just can't bear to do that. (Less)

German Shepherd    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Aggressive 

    Mandy is such a sweet girl! My husband and I have 3 boys; ages 9,11, and 15. Mandy is great with all of us and she is great with people she knows. The trouble is that she is very fearfully aggressive. We have been reccomended by our Vet and by an experienced trainer to re-home her or euthanize her. We REALLY do not want to euthanize her! For the person who is willing to work with her, I believe there is hope for her. She is super smart and learns so quickly. She loves to play and for someone who is an experienced trainer, I think she could be your favorite dog ever! We love her so much, but just can't have a liability with a dog who is so ...

    Black Corgi. Seems like he was abused in the past. Anytime I went down to attach leash or pet him he would bow down as if he were getting ready to be hit. Very sweet dog though, just needs love and affection. Fostered him for a week and 3 days and went from being terrified to being extremely excited when we got home, to snuggling by my side when I go to bed. Trust issues. However, not aggressive. Very low key, not high maintenance. Eats well. Contact David Amor, (786) 546-1806. He will have Peanuts for the next few weeks or however long it takes to find this sweet boy a new home!

    Have you been sitting at home on your couch feeling there is a void that needs to be filled? Do you go for walks to the park alone and feel there is something missing? We know the answer!!! Meet MAXWELL! He is an ideal companion dog, not too big and not too small. We suspect he has a little bit of bulldog mixed in with Blue Heeler, he sure has the giant happy bulldog smile! This stout sweet man has a friendly greeting for every person he meets, big, small, young and old! He is very outgoing and affectionate. However, he doesn't always share the same enthusiasm for his fellow canines; he can be bossy and downright grumpy sometimes, so we feel ... (Read More)best that he goes to a home where he is the only dog in town. MAXWELL is otherwise an ideal companion dog, enjoys easy walks, relaxes quietly in the house, sleeps next to the bed all night without snoring and loves scrambled eggs on Sunday. BE LONESOME NO MORE!! Maxwell is 4 years old and weighs 37 pounds. All of our adoptable pets have been spayed or neutered, are heart worm free, started on parasite preventatives, vaccinated, and microchipped. Dogs with special needs also have their needs evaluated and met to the best of our ability.

Chihuahua    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Our names are Milo and Otis. We were surrendered by our owner at just 4 weeks old. We were only 10 ounces when we arrived. Our foster mommies said we were sick little pumpkins. We are now full grown and weigh only 3-4 pounds. Because we did not get to nurse with our mom (the breeder took us away from her as she thought we would be better puppies), and we were so sick, it takes us a little longer to catch onto things. We are still working on potty training. We are bonded, so need a home where we can be together. We love to play and give kisses. We would prefer a home with no children under the age of 10 years because we are small and ... (Read More)afraid. We would prefer if someone were home with us a great deal of the time. We love to play and bark, so apartment life would not be a good fit for us. To meet us, please call Lori at 952-221-2077. Age: 2 years old Special Needs This is through a rescue organization. An adoption fee will apply and an application will be required. The adoption fee covers a portion of neutering, tests, shots, and other care. (Less)

Moving and due to circumstances can not take him with. He is a senior but vet says he is in good condition for his age. Still has his cuteness. He looks like a golden (red) retreiver that was shrunk in the dryer but all I can see is long hair dachshund. Longer red hair, not much grey. No vet bills other than shots.

He is an older dog and we are having trouble finding a suitable home for him. He is in good health, but he did have a back injury about a year ago that seems to have healed. His owner said that ...

    Lady is a love bug, but sadly does not get along with our other dog. She does well with cats and will do well with kids who do not pull/tug at her. Ideally she belongs in a no other dogs and adult only home. She does not do well at dog parks and will be dominant towards other dogs. She is low energy. She is about 115 lbs. Loves cuddles, walks, and being a loyal dog to her owner. We would like the owner to ideally reside in MN where we can occasionally visit her (1-2 times a year?) and stay in email contact with them.

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-11-00715Scout (female)

Lab    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Low Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Scout is an extremely loving lab who has been a part of our family since she was 8 weeks old. We're heartbroken to realize we can't give her the love and attention she needs anymore. Scout is a sweet dog who loves a good belly rub. She has no health issues and is very low maintenance. The only difficulty with Scout is that when she's on a leash she can be aggressive with other dogs, but that is easily controlled and she has never demonstrated aggression once she is introduced to the dog (and she isn't aggressive with people ever!). She will be so happy in a loving home with a family looking for lots of snuggles and labrador kisses.

Lab    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Most Cats 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Fearful/Anxious 

    Molly is an extremely loving lab who has been a part of our family since she was 7 weeks old. We're heartbroken to realize we can't give her the love and attention she needs anymore. Molly is a sweet dog who loves to snuggle and be with people all the time. She has allergies and some age-related clouding in her eyes. Because she loves people so much she gets slightly anxious about being left, but she does great in a crate and isn't destructive or harmful to herself because of it. She will be so happy in a loving home with a family looking for lots of snuggles and labrador kisses.

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-11-00192Kiva (female)

Australian Cattle Dog    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Very High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Deaf 

    Meet KIVA! She is a young, petite, deep blue roan with a cute raccoon mask. She will play frisbee 'til the cows come home, is doing well with crate and house training. While she is friendly with other dogs, she can annoy them too with her puppy-like enthusiasm and heeler nipping. For the same reason, we do not recommend her being adopted to a home with young children. Kiva was relinquished by her owner on the Pine Ridge reservation. She is high energy, very high drive AND, we have discovered, DEAF! Because nobody knew she was unable to hear, she has not received any deaf-specific training at this time, but we are working on that. She is a ... (Read More)smart girl and we feel she would thrive with a dedicated owner curious about the challenge of learning a new way of communicating with a dog. If you are interested in understanding more about deaf dogs and their training, please check out www.deafdogsrock.com. There are many stories and training tips there, including a video that shows all of the signs other deaf dog owners use for their pets! From their website: "Deaf dogs make amazing pets. They are not harder to train, just different. In fact, raising a deaf dog will make you a far better dog owner.' All of our adoptable pets have been spayed or neutered, are heart worm free, started on parasite preventatives, vaccinated, and microchipped. Dogs with special needs also have their needs evaluated and met to the best of our ability. In order to ensure that all of our dogs go to their best and last homes, we require that an adoption application and home visit is completed and approved before adopting. Our adoption contract includes a two week trial period to give you and your new family member time to adjust. Her adoption fee is $250. Contact ACDrescueMN@gmail.com for an adoption application.

Rescue Me ID: 14-08-06-00705Pasha (female)

Rottweiler    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current, Fearful/Anxious,
 Incontinent 

    [Read About Natural Incontinence Care] This is Pasha! We have two Rottweilers and a baby on the way, and are realizing we need to find a new home for our sweet Pasha to make room for this growing family. She is a loving, submissive, yet protective girl-- she'll let you know when something unusual is going on outside, then will stop barking when asked/commanded. She is trained using an e-collar; human training on these collars is available if needed upon adoption. Her favorite things are catching a bounced ball, snuggling, giving kisses, and TREATS. This girl will do anything for a treat. She has a couple special needs. The first of which is a ... (Read More)generally calm environment-- she gets anxious and fearful in chaotic environments or around heightened emotions. One trigger for her anxiety is small children (under 6-7 yrs of age), especially those who are fearful/boisterous around Pasha. We often put a Thunder Shirt on her and put her in a kennel in a separate room when we have young kids in the house. She LOVES our niece who is 8 years old and would snuggle her all day long if allowed. Another trigger for her anxiety is other dogs-- she has not been aggressive toward other dogs we've spent time with, but definitely seems a little worked up and on edge. She would thrive best in a single-dog household. She also sleeps with an incontinence pad on her bed, as we have found that she dribbles a little urine now and then when she's sleeping. We wash it 1-2 times per month and that keeps that issue pretty well contained. On nights that she gets to snuggle in our bed, we simply put the pad up on top of the covers, and let her sleep on it up on the bed. She is in heaven when allowed to snuggle in a human bed-- she often flips belly up and sleeps with all four legs sprawled in the air. When meeting strangers, she tends to need a little coaxing to warm up to them. She'll bark, but doesn't jump up when someone comes in the door. She's generally comfortable with women. Men need to give her a couple extra minutes of sniffing, calm petting, and sweet voices-- then she's their best friend. If she would need to be boarded during travel, it is important for her to have a few visits first to get to know the staff first. She thrives around confident dog-people who treat her affectionately. Pasha is playful and spunky and loves to get a little exercise daily. However, after slipping on the ice when she was 1 yr old and having both knees surgically repaired, her running stride is a little awkward. She appears comfortable and has fully healed, but the range of motion of her knees was altered. She prefers romping, close-range fetch, tug-of-war, and leisurely walks as opposed to full sprints or long distance jogs. She is otherwise healthy, happy, spayed, and current on vaccinations. We would prefer someone who is experienced/knowledgeable about Rottweilers for adopting Pasha. She will make a loving addition to the right home! (Less)

Pit Bull    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Canela is a wonderful dog and I would love to keep her but my husband doesn't want the responsibility of walking her and generally caring for her. We have had her for 3 and a half years and my husband is simply tired of the extra work of having a dog. She rarely barks (mostly when she is happy) which is a plus. She does require a very SOLID kennel when alone in the house because she has dealt with separation anxiety in the past. We have worked with her to get her to a very manageable level with separation anxiety. Also we are willing to work with her new owners on her transition to a new home.

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Kid. He's an incredible dog with an amazing past. Found on the streets in San Diego, coxed into the fold by some of the best rescuers, fixed up and healed in Beverly Hills and then sent to the green grass & deep snows of Minnesota. He speaks two languages. He's a charmer and will outwit you at every turn. He loves the cozy bed but still has his street dog hustle. What I found out about him is that he loves carrots but leaves a big mess eating them. He loves his dog treats and doesn't mind having to mind manners to get them. If a few small bits of pepperoni makes it into his dish while pizza is being made'|while he keeps that a ... (Read More)secret as well. Since he was living by his wits for a few years, he does require a disciplined and experienced dog owner. He will listen to the Alpha of the pack and after that, he will pick & choose. He's loyal as all get out to the house occupants but he requires a proper introduction to new guests. He does get quirky with people. I've seen little kids run up out of nowhere and pet him without any issue but he does not like my neighbor who is the nicest person. Very random. He does not like people goofing off if it looks like they are 'fighting'. He wants to get into the mix and 'break it up'. He doesn't like other dogs in the house. We did have an incident where we thought we introduced everyone ok but after an hour or so, he let it be known he wasn't a sharer after all. Side note, he did stay with friends with a small dog at their house with no issue. Again, random. He loves balls but only the rubber Kong and those super hard big nylon bones can hold up to his chew. A tennis ball can only be played with if he 'drops it' after fetch so he's not allowed to eat it. And boy does he love to run and fetch! He's not the most reliable returner but then, I'm not the most experienced trainer so that could be me. (I did have 100% success with the treat based reward.) Do note, he loves feather pillows, especially if he gets bored. I've gone through more than a few'| He chills out (on leash) with me on the patio. He loves snow & cold but doesn't like too much of it at one time. He loves the fan on him even though there is AC. If you want to go out on the road, he loves the car. As in, LOVES. Belly rubs and jowl scratches are a 'must' do. It is bliss for him. Last notes'|his hearing and smell are off the charts. Its fun to watch him in action as he chases down a gopher only he smelled but no one saw or go to the window before you can see who is walking down the street. The basics are this: Kid is about 70lbs and knows his name. He knows sit, down and off. He knows more in Spanish but I don't speak it. If you do, this may open a whole new world. I wouldn't recommend a house with kids (he's big and very excited to play so he may push them down accidentally) or other pets. He is not a fan of the crate. The first night I had him, I left the crate out and the door open for him to use it. He promptly dragged his bed out onto the floor with his toy and never even looked at it after. I would recommend space. I don't have a fenced yard and he doesn't like being outside by himself but he does like to run when you are with him. I am heartbroken I can't be his forever home. After not working for 6+ months, I landed my dream job. The downside is I travel every week and I have no one here to watch him. After the first two weeks of my travel, he's a bit melancholy. He definitely likes it better when I'm home every night. I included his 'I'm going to play this for all its worth to get me out of trouble/get another treat look.' (Less)

    It is with very heavy hearts that we are considering placing Hank up for adoption. We were told Hank is an Italian Mastiff but he did not have papers. We got Hank at 12 weeks old and he has been a part of our family ever since. He is very loyal and loving but nervous around small children. He loves chasing bunnies, squirrels and being a part of the action. He longs for affection and gets plenty of it from us- he's very good at placing himself in your lap for it. He is very healthy with the exception of both his back legs having had cruciate ligament surgery. He is a picky eater which has helped keep his weight down. He weighs about 115 ... (Read More)pounds and is extremely muscular. He has not been great with small children and we have too many around our home to ignore this issue. He loves his big brother and I do fear he would be lost without him so we would prefer a home with another dog if possible. We do not need to have hime adopted but hope to find a perfect family for him that does not have small children. (Less)

    Please help with a good home for Sabre in her later years. She is a 13 yr old 50/50 Brittany/Cocker Spaniel mix, ideal weight 30-35 lbs. She is a very intelligent dog, likes to be around people and is eager to please. She likes cats, can be territorial with other dogs, but is not super aggressive. I have had her since she was a pup, but a move into town is putting her in a bind. I can't leave her out when I work nights, her barking annoys the neighbors and my long shifts stretch her bladder to the limit. An ideal home would have a yard to run in and some other animal companions.

    Hello there! My name is Booker! I came into the shelter as a stray! I am a big boy with a big personality! I just love to be around people and get everyone's attention! I have quite a bit of energy so it would be great for me to go to a home with a fenced in yard so I can run, run, run! I don't do very well in town since I need lots of room to run and play fetch! I would play fetch until I fell over, it's the best thing ever. I am a sweet boy but I do need some training. I do know how to open the latch on kennels so you have to be sure to lock the gate so I can't get out. I can be a bit wild when it comes time to ride in the car. With a ... (Read More)little bit of training and love I just know I will be the perfect canine companion! I get along with older children and some other dogs, but I do not like cats or other small animals. I am searching for my furrrever home and would be oh so happy if you came out and met me today! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-05-16-00334Gypsie (female)

Chihuahua    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Spayed 

    Gypsie likes go for short walks and take naps on the couch and on her own in her kennel. She DOES NOT SLEEP IN BED WITH OWNER. Although she has been around kids since the kids were babies, this breed naturally stay away from small children, as they are little. Would prefer someone who is done having kids, maybe someone who is retired or semi-retired and is a homebody. She is not around other dogs due to her size, and is potty trained indoors and outdoors. She had bad reactions to immunizations so did not continue after the first time, but she is a very healthy dog. She also had a rod put in her leg, as it is a common problem in ... (Read More)chihuahua's as well. Does bark, but only during situations other dogs bark at as well, like a knock at the door, visitors or strange noises. once she meets the visitor, she goes about her business. She is actually quite friendly and social and loves meeting new people. She will need a laid back household with not much action. She does not do stairs, not because she has problems, but to prevent them. She needs someone who will have a plan with a friend or family member to take care of her when they need to be away for extended periods of time (overnight) for she does not have most shots that a pet hotel would require, besides the fact that most hotels have all dogs interact and she would not be used to that, and frankly not safe. The new owner would have to have a plan for any future medical issues that may occur or if their lives called for re-homing again. Please e-mail if interested with WHY she would be a good fit with your family. Thanks! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 14-04-21-00176Rocco (male)

American Bulldog Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Female Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    I am looking for a new home for my American Bulldog mix, Rocco. Rocco is a sweetheart, but his heart beats for being outside, running, and chasing squirrels or bunnies. I live in the city and take him for a bike ride and walk every day, but he needs more freedom and exercise than what I can provide. I recently moved back in with my parents who have a dog and 2 cats. Their dog and Rocco do not get along due to jealousy from their dog initially and now Rocco is overly defensive towards him. Also, Rocco cannot be loose in my parent's house because he wants to chase the 2 cats. This is a very hard decision for me as I love him to death, but it ... (Read More)is not fair to him to be inside so much when he really is an outside dog. I adopted Rocco from the Humane Society in 09/2013. He was very calm and laid back when I initially got him so I thought he would be the perfect fit for my lifestyle, but he was sick with kennel cough and once he recovered from that he showed his true spunky, energetic self. He is hilarious and is a bull in a china shop. He loves to cuddle and could win an award for his nighttime snuggling ability. He has only been loose to play with one other dog who was a female boxer mix. They loved each other and played great. The only other experience with another dog is with my family's dog who did not like Rocco coming into his territory. I would not recommend bringing Rocco into a household with cats, smaller dogs (he does not know his own strength), or male dogs (possibly a dominance issue, but this is just an assumption). I would also not recommend a home with small children as Rocco is very powerful and loves people. He would never harm a child and with proper training to control his jumping I am sure he could be with children. We have been working on his jumping when meeting new people, but does not know his own strength and doesn't listen consistently to the down command. I will also only consider giving him to a new home with a yard and plenty of room for him to run. Adoption fee is to make sure the inquiry is serious. If interested please e-mail me to set up a meet and greet. (Less)

Animal ID: Twiggs-06262013Twiggs (male)

Mastiff    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Male Dogs Only, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We're moving and he isn't able to come with. If interested: Available for $500 - - Serious inquiries only please. Twiggs is a 5 year old, 197lbs, apricot colored, purebred English Mastiff. Born November 21st, 2008. He is also NOT neutered. Twiggs is VERY strong, and though he is leash trained and does not try to run, he is at times temped to chase small creatures and it is important to be strong both in muscle and character to be able to reign him in. Twiggs rarely barks at all. He does not jump on people. He love to be with people, and often will sit and sleep in whatever room his people are in. He enjoys snuggling, watching movies, ... (Read More)and relaxing. Due to his size, he is not walked extensively or ran, he is usually brought outside to go potty and then brought back inside where he is comfortable and protected form the high heat of the summer. He has been raised on Native 4 dog food. He is not fed table food. At times he is given a treat of a raw egg, or select fruit, which he loves extensively. Truthfully, Twiggs is about as awesome of a dog as anyone could have, sadly life circumstances are requiring I explore options of finding him a new home. He should live to around 10 years old. He is very healthy, in perfect shape according to the vet. If you think you could provide a warm, attentive, loving environment for Twiggs, let me know. He deserves the best. (Less)

Beagle    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good w/ Other Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Beautiful and sweet beagle that needs a home that can give her a lot of love and some extra attention that we are not able to give. Nina loves to cuddle and is great with our young daughter. She is 7 years old, we have had her since she was a puppy. She is an indoor dog that only goes outside for family play or to 'relieve' herself. She needs 'supervision' or a fenced in yard as she likes to follow the scents of rabbits and other animals. She sleeps in bed with us every night, and has since she was a puppy, so new owners would need to consent to that as well. She gets a bit anxious when left home alone, though she is daily with our work ... (Read More)schedules, and when people come into the yard, but can be easily calmed by petting and offering reassurance. This has been a difficult decision for our family, but we love her enough to know that she deserves more than we can give, we would like to see her welcomed into a great home where she can get a lot of love, cuddles and attention.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Dog in Minnesota
    Dogs can make good pets in Minnesota if they match your IifestyIe. Dogs have a reputation for being "man's best friend" for excellent reasons. Dogs are wonderful companions. Many breeds, in addition to being affectionate, devoted members of the family, are useful working dogs and guardians. Most dogs form tight bonds with their humans, and need to be cared for like the valuable family members they are. But sadly, some owners do not live up to the responsibility and involvement it takes to properly care for a dog throughout its life. Dogs can become the victims of neglect or active abuse. Some dogs receive tender, attentive care from their owners, but no longer have a home after their owner passes away or experiences a major life event that makes him unable to keep his dog. There are many more dogs than there are homes for dogs, and dogs that are not spayed or neutered can accidentally produce large numbers of puppies, exacerbating overpopulation. For this reason, three to four million dogs, many of them perfectly healthy and wonderful animals, are euthanized in the U.S. each year.

    Many people get excited about owning a new dog, decide to get a puppy, and then pick one out at a pet shop or visit a breeder with a new litter. However, there are so many wonderful, friendly dogs in need of adoption, including puppies and purebreds. Some of these dogs might even be a better fit for a family than a new puppy; for instance, some adult dogs in need of adoption are already housebroken and obedience trained. Adoption is typically much less expensive than purchasing a dog. People who adopt dogs find the experience extremely rewarding, bond very closely with their dogs, and have the added satisfaction of knowing that one less animal has to be euthanized. If your family is ready for a canine companion, please consider adopting a dog!

lnteresting Dog Trivia Low-Cost Minnesota Spay & Neuter Clinics
    All dogs, even cute little lap dogs, are ultimately descended from domesticated wolves. The dog was the earliest domesticated animal. Dogs can hear much lower frequencies than humans, over twice as high as humans, and about four times as far as humans.
