Over the past couple of weeks during my regular dog walks at the pet-friendly apartment complexes where I work, I couldn't help but notice the number of puppies that people were walking. Big puppies like German Shepherd Dogs and Labs and little puppies like Yorkies and Malteses. There were Jack Russell puppies and Westie puppies and even a couple of Pug puppies.

Don't get me wrong. I love puppies. They are cute and adorable and funny and very very loveable.What got me thinking however, was that for every new puppy that someone took into their home, a potential forever home was lost to a shelter or rescue dog who was past his puppy years. As a volunteer at the San Diego Humane Society, every day I see wonderful loving dogs waiting desperately for someone to take them home and love them. When people walk towards their kennels their faces light up and their tails begin to wag as they hope that someone will stop long enough to see how really terrific they are.I can almost hear them saying, "Pick me, pick me". Fortunately, most of them do find wonderful homes ...eventually.

If you are thinking about adding a dog to your family, please go to the shelter or rescue group first. Check the wonderful dogs available on Petfinder.com.

Yes puppies are wonderful but won't you give an older dog a chance?
