Makes me sick to think of people just ditching dogs.
I'd adopt a rescue dog tomorrow if it weren't for my two (admittedly, highly strung) cats Ron & Reg who totally ruled Dylan (the Doberman), as they were there first and therefore dominant. Not sure how a full grown dog coming in would take to that, but I assume not well...
