Hastily abandoned at a local shelter, he was a German Shepherd approximately one-year old with an unknown history, not even a name. Competing with younger and smaller dogs at the shelter, his chances of being adopted were slim. Then came a man who had recently lost his own German Shepherd. He knew this dog was the right one and named the dog Otto. The two quickly bonded. Having once had little hope, Otto is now enjoying his new life with his forever friend.
 
On average, only 12 to 13% of cats and dogs owned in America are from shelters. Among the reasons is the demand for certain characteristics.
 
Researchers found 52% of the sheltered dogs in one major city were large breeds, compared to 35% in the overall pet population. Most will be euthanized because they’re too big for city residents to adopt.
 
In the general pet population, 55% of all dogs in the United States are purebred. In shelters, that figure drops to 25%.
 
What the statistics don’t tell is the lifetime of love in store for the right owner – someone who has appropriate living quarters and isn’t worried about breeding a specific bloodline. That person’s perfect companion is waiting at a local shelter.
