WooFStoria Tip for Day

Here are some things to consider if you thinking about getting a dog.

If you decide to adopt a dog that has been abused in the past, there is a possibility that the dog may act out in the beginning because of the abuse that happened to them.  They will need to feel safe in their new environment and they need to develop a trust with you.  This will take time, but eventually they will realize that you love and care for them and once they realize you are not going to harm them, most likely they will bond with you and show you lots of love and affection for decades to come.
