There is something incredibly special about adopting a dog, whether it be an old one, a puppy or a rescue. It's like welcoming a new family member. Some might even equate the experience to bringing a newborn baby home from the hospital.
Adopted dogs often have a very special bond with the person that takes them home, and they will be loyal to their human for life. The beautiful things about rescuing a dog is that you can rewrite his future, especially if he comes from a sad past.
Take a look at these adorable photos of adopted pups meeting their new humans for the first time.
Tens of thousands of dogs and cats end up in shelters each year, either due to neglect, abuse or abandonment. Consider adopting before you shop, and visit your local shelters before going to a breeder. Every dog and cat deserves a fair chance at a forever home.
