More and more people are electing to take in unwanted dogs and give them care and security in a loving home, rather than buy a pedigree puppy. This highly illustrated, comprehensive guide to adopting a rescue dog gives expert advice and guidance on how to rehome an adult dog successfully.
With chapters on bonding with your new dog, training, keeping your dog happy and healthy and how to overcome behaviour problems, Rescue Me! shows adopters how to gain the trust and love of their new companion.
Also includes some fascinating and heartwarming case studies of successfully adopted rescue dogs and puppies.
