VISIT WITH SHELTER ANIMALS

While you're at the shelter, keep in mind that the animals there will be stressed out; quite often, a dog's true colors won't show until he's away from other animals and the shelter environment.

An adoption counselor can help you select canines who will match your lifestyle. When you spend time with each animal, consider the following questions:
