How Adopt-a-Pet.com Helps Pittsburgh Dogs for Sale Find Homes

By Adopt-a-Pet.com

Despite the fact that millions of dogs end up in animal shelters in need of a home each year, many people looking to buy a Pittsburgh dog for sale don’t know to think about adoption from an animal shelter or humane society. Many people simply are not aware of how many great adoptable dogs are available at Pittsburgh shelters. Some people might also have the misconception that dogs in shelters have something wrong with them. In fact, most Pittsburgh dogs for adoption end up in shelters not because of any problem with pet behavior or health issues, but because they were dropped off by someone who simply didn't have the time or money to care for the animals. In some cases pets are lost and never found by their owners. These dogs are healthy and very eager to please. Shelter dogs are wonderful- just ask anyone who has one! Pittsburgh shelters have dogs of all breeds, including purebred dogs. Purebred dogs for sale in Pittsburgh sometimes end up in shelters because the person who bred their purebred dog was not able to sell all the puppies. These people are sometimes called "backyard" dog breeders. They are people who breed dogs as a hobby or to make money, but don’t make a commitment to the puppies for life if they cannot find them a home. Purebred dogs also end up in shelters for the reasons that any dog might- the owner died, moved and couldn’t take the dog in their new apartment, etc. While people often think they want a purebred dog, they might not realize that often mixed-breed dogs are genetically healthier. Less inbreeding means less inherited genetic disease and breed related defects, lower vet bills and happier little pooches! Adoption is a win-win for dogs and pet lovers. How can you find a dog to love you for life? It’s simple: Adopt!
