What to Expect When Adopting a Dog is a guide to successful dog adoption and pet parenting for every family. Anyone considering a new dog has questions, particularly when thinking about adopting a shelter dog.

What to Expect When Adopting a Dog offers expert advice from rescue specialists and organizations, veterinarians, dog parents, and pet business owners. The book offers links to the best, most relevant articles from pet professionals along with some useful products, making it a one-stop shop for the most asked dog-related questions, before, during, and after adoption.

What to Expect When Adopting a Dog answers questions like:

  • Whether dog adoption is right for you
