On May 20, National Rescue Dog Day recognizes all the benefits of allowing a four-legged canine to adopt you into their immeasurably lovable life. When it comes to four-legged friends, they improve the human condition by leaps and bounds, barks, and yips. It’s hard to imagine a more helpful, worthy companion. Give them a chance to make your life better! Consider giving them a forever home!
According to the ASPCA, approximately 3.3 million dogs enter shelters every year. When these abandoned and abused animals find their way to a shelter, each one needs a forever home and their potential is limitless. They’re rescue dogs.
No matter their size, color, or breed, dogs will find a way to nuzzle, fetch, or beg their way into your heart. You’ll find it hard not to scratch one behind the ear.
Rescue dogs often overcome extreme obstacles and yet provide comfort, security, and friendship as family pets. But rescue dogs are capable of much more. With training, they contribute to the independence of people with disabilities as service animals and give comfort to the elderly. In these circumstances, they become our eyes, ears, or legs as well as our best friend.
Rescue dogs provide a variety of therapeutic benefits. Children, teens, and adults with autism may benefit from services provided by trained rescue dogs. As emotional support companions, rescue dogs help to relieve anxiety, depression, and PTSD among the military or those who suffer from mental illness.
They make excellent teachers, too. Rescue dogs show children about caring and kindness. Rescue dogs can even be trained to rescue us from dangerous situations or help to investigate the cause of a fire.

Pictured above: Frieza: A Pointer/Terrier Mix.
This is Miss Frieza. She is a beautiful 5-month-old girl that is currently 31-pounds and growing. We believe she is a pointer mix with her striking black and white features.
Frieza has a good amount of puppy energy and is playful outdoors, but not rambunctious indoors. She would do well with plenty of exercising, playing, and space to run. Frieza's ideal home would have a fenced yard where she can sniff and explore. Frieza is a love bug and is very happy to sit in your lap, snuggle, or take a snooze at your feet. We are working on house training, but she is not yet accident-free. Frieza is smart (knows "sit" and "lay down" commands) and eager to please.
Her current foster family includes 3 elementary school-aged children. She was cautious of them at first, with some warning barks when approached, but now considers them to be good friends. Frieza is not initially friendly with new people or other dogs but seems to warm up quickly to people once she feels secure. Frieza is crate trained and will sleep through the night and stay in her crate when needed without a problem. She is very polite with her humans and mealtime and doesn't beg or whine.
Frieza is learning how to go on walks and will bark at some passing dogs or people with some pulling. She is working on her leash manners and improving every day. Frieza is a great dog and will be a loyal addition to her fur-ever family. She is young and will do well with plenty of love, a little bit of patience, and consistent training as she grows.
