  1. I am a big fan of shelter adoptions- we currently have 2 shelter dogs right now, have fostered and placed many more. These animals are just as good as pedigreed animals and deserve a chance! Its so nice to see celebrities and pedigree cooperating to make a difference and increase awareness for shelter adoptions.
