A dog should never be an impulse purchase. Learn what to ask before adopting a shelter dog. We also cover how to find dog-friendly landlords.
While shelter dogs often come with baggage, there are many who will make perfect pets. In this episode of Good Dog, Jan McHugh Smith, President of the San Francisco SPCA, advises listeners on how to select the right dog for your lifestyle from an animal shelter. Many dogs arrive at shelters because their owners moved and the new landlord wouldn’t accept pets. The SFSPCA has an Open Door Program that helps dog owners find pet-friendly housing and makes recommendations on how to approach landlords on this topic. Go to SFSPCA.org for tons of great information on renting an apartment with a dog.
