Review:

Every year there are ten million dogs in shelters across the U. S. Of these, about three million (25%) get adopted. For many dog lovers, shelters are an ideal place to find a pet: they are saving a life, spending less money, and getting lots of dogs to choose from. The Adoption Option explores every stage of adopting a dog, from deciding if a shelter dog is right for you, to tips for starting life together on the right paw. Specific chapters help readers decide how to assess what kind of dog will suit them best and how to make certain that the shelter is a reputable one. Invaluable information regarding what to expect from a dog with a new life "on the outside' and stories of successful adoptions punctuate the text, and make it clear that, with a little wise advice, a shelter dog will become your best friend. -- Midwest Book Review
