“Don’t shop, adopt!” is a popular phrase animal shelters use to help find dogs their forever home. So, what can new owners expect when they bring home a shelter dog? A new study from The Ohio State University indicates that certain behaviors change over time, such as increases in stranger-directed aggression, chasing behavior, training difficulty, excitability, and touch sensitivity at different intervals. However, that doesn’t mean dog owners regret their choice to rescue.
When lazy dogs aren’t napping, they’re usually busy stealing hearts.
In fact, a study shows that most dog owners would rather snuggle with their pets over their partners.
So, it’s a good thing these lazy breeds usually stay put for some quality cuddles.
