From Library Journal:

This is a basic book on choosing, training, and caring for a dog, but instead of addressing puppy buyers who purchase their pets from a reputable breeder, this resource assembled by, a popular pet adoption web site, is for the millions of people who acquire their dogs secondhand. Vice president of shelter outreach at, Saunders draws on a knowledgeable panel of contributors, including dog-care authors Sheila Boneham, Liz Palika, Sue Sternberg, and others, which adds to the book's credibility. The information covers the usual basics but is substantial, and owners with further concerns or questions are referred to other organizations or their local veterinarian or trainer. Well organized and illustrated, the 22 chapters cover a comprehensive range of topics, from where to find the right dog, breed characteristics, and guidelines for selecting the dog to retraining, modifying undesirable behaviors, and routine care and health considerations. This is a worthwhile purchase for all sizes of public libraries and suitable for both first-time and seasoned dog owners. Highly recommended.-Edell M.
