October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

As most of you know I volunteer for Green Mountain Pug Rescue, but I love all dogs. If you are thinking of adding a dog to your family, please consider adopting a dog from a shelter. I have adopted several older pugs and older dogs bond with families as well as puppies. We recently adopted a pug that spent 8 years in a cage at a puppy mill. Her paws are deformed from walking on the floor of a wire cage. She shook for two days when we brought her home, and did not know how to go up or down the steps or go through a door. She also did not know how to eat out of a bowl. That was in July. Today she is running through the doors, up the steps and waits faithfully every evening for my husband to come home. 

If you can’t have a dog, or add another member to your family, consider donating time, money, dog food, flea medicines or blankets to a humane society.
