In America today, more dogs are finding themselves in shelters. People are increasingly getting rid of their best friends.
There are hundreds or even thousands of dogs going to shelters every year because of their guardians either being unwilling or unable to care for them anymore.
Statistics show that approximately a quarter of the dogs in shelters have behavioral problems while another quarter are simply unwanted. The remainder are given out for domestic or other reasons.
