By adopting a puppy you will also decrease the demand for puppy mills. The desire to buy pure bred puppies is frequently based upon misunderstanding or a lack of knowledge.
Five Reasons To Rescue A Puppy!
1. You Will Be More Social!
A puppy won’t just make you more social it will make you more popular person amongst a group of family, friends and neighbors.
2. A Great Feeling!

5. You Will Be Grateful!
Those who’ve rescued puppies swear that these dogs just know and are extra-grateful and loving to their adopters. Find out if that’s true by adopting the puppy that captures your heart!
