This just warmed my heart to read this news! In the Fall 2011 issue, The American Dog magazine will feature 5 pages of special needs dogs that need homes. This is so arf-a-roo fantastic! So be sure to check it out if you are considering a special needs dog. I can guarantee you your life will never be the same if you bring one of these amazing pets into your life.... just ask my mom... she knows. ARF!
