Why is it so hard to get approved to adopt a dog?
“People who end up being fantastic adopters often don’t meet the arduous requirements of a shelter,” Weiss said. Reasons for rejection may include having lost a pet. “If you don’t get a pet from an animal welfare organization, that dog or cat is probably a lot less likely to be vaccinated or spayed or neutered.”
What is better buying pets or adoption?
While adoption might give you the peace of mind, and of course, give the pet a second chance, if you are not ready to take up the challenge a shelter dog may bring with him or her, chances are that sooner or later the kindness will fade away, making the poor creature homeless again.

Here’s my list of questions that you should ask prior to adopting a new pet:
- What is this pet’s story?
- How long has it been at the shelter/rescue?
- Has the pet been adopted before, and why was he returned?
- How old is this pet?
- What, if any, illnesses or injuries has the pet had?
- Is there any history of abuse?

How often you think the dog will need vet care. What kind of food you plan to feed the dog. Your future plans for grooming (the pet, not yourself). Whether you’re also looking for pets through other channels, such as pet stores, breeders, or animal shelters, and why you’re looking there.
How do I say hello to my dog?
The dog word for “hello” is woof (pronounced wuf, wüf, and sometimes wrüf, depending on breed and regional dialect). Facing your dog, say woof in as energetically and friendly a way as possible (tone of voice is very important; the similar-sounding weuf means “Back off! This is my food!”).
