5 reasons to adopt a shelter dog

Hiya everyone!

Before we get started on today's post, I would like to announce the WINNER of our
Righteously cool, Righteous Hound Giveaway!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Congrats to Jeanne Pursell!!!
You have been contacted via email, so please respond within the next 48 hours.

October is a special month.
Why you ask?

That's right.
October is adopt-a-shelter dog month!

You may be wondering, why adopt a shelter dog?
Allow me to be the one to fill you in!

1) You are saving a life!
2) Supporting rescues and volunteers all over the world.
3) You are giving a pet a second chance at life and love.
4) Shelter dogs have been spayed/neutered and vaccinated.
5) You are being a voice for shelter dogs.

These dogs have a lot of love to give.
They are very thankful for their second chance at life, and will not be shy in showing you that.

If these are not enough reasons to encourage to shop shelter, than just imagine all of these pets, without homes, just waiting for the right human to walk in, give them a pat on the head, and say "I want this one!"


Keeping with "adopt a shelter dog month" I am taking part in the Tuesday Tails blog hop, hosted by,
Lisa from Dogs 'n' Pawz and Sue from Talking Dogs.

Meet Abe :

Abe is a Siberian Husky / Blue Heeler mix.
I shared Abe's story quite a few months ago, and he is still anxiously awaiting his fur-ever home.
He spent his birthday (this past March) in the shelter where he turned 1 year old.

Abe was originally found abandoned, and tied to a post in front of a shelter.
Despite his cruel treatment by his previous owner, Abe is an extremely happy pup!
He is full of love and energy, and loves to be around people.

He is great with other dogs, however, he prefers to eat alone, as he is food protective.
You can find Abe, and many other shelter huskies at
  Hairy Houdini Siberian Husky Rescue in Michigan.

If you would like more info on Abe the Husky, send an email to Nancy at wolfepak53@windstream.net or phone

Also see my "Adopt a Husky"  page and find a shelter near you.
Thanks for coming by, and see you tomorrow!

  3. Both myself and our beloved but sadly departed Ancient Pip were adopted so we really believe in giving pets a second chance. Nice one and we wish all looking for forever homes good luck. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

    1. That's great Molly! You all deserve a second chance at love and a happy life, and I know you have that!

  4. Congratulations to Jeanne!! Abe is absolutely beautiful! Sharing.

  5. Abe is gorgeous - I though for sure he would have been adopted by now - he's got such so beautiful. But there are just so many dogs waiting for homes I guess, it's so sad. Sharing Abe.

    1. It is sad, I was unhappy to see he was still there ;( Paws crossed though!

  6. Love the Tuesday Tail's Blog Hop - I bet lots of dogs have been helped by it.

  7. Shoppin' is for clothes and toys and food. ADOPTING is for FAMILY.


  8. My sisters and I are all from breeders, but Mom had a shelter dog and loved her to death. We are all for shelter pets, just right now we are in a different phase.

    1. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with that either!

  9. Congratulations to Jeanne! She is such a sweetheart. I'm sure that Abe will find his forever family. Those two breeds are certain to produce a very smart pup! Sharing. ♥

    1. Yes, he would be an incredibly smart pup for sure!!!

  10. Yay for Jeanne!
    Abe is so handsome, I can't believe he hasn't found a home yet. I shared him and hope he finds his home soon.
    Lots of wags and woofs from the crew at Wag n Woof Pets

  11. Abe is very handsome. We purr that he finds his furever home soon.

    Congrats to Miss Jeanne on her win. :)

  12. Congrats to the winner! Righteous Hound is awesome. All great reasons to adopt a shelter pet :)
