**VERY IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ADOPTERS**
We can’t emphasize enough that every newly adopted dog remain on-leash, both inside and out, for a minimum of 14 days. As most of our rescues were outdoor dogs and strays, keeping them on-leash will help prevent them from running away as they are adjusting to their new home. At the same time it will help start building the bond between you and the dog.
If you’ve adopted an adult dog, we strongly advise that you pay minimal attention to them in the form of talking and touching for the first few weeks to avoid creating separation anxiety. While it’s a natural instinct for people to do this, separation anxiety will lead dogs to break out of their crate and cause destruction in your home.
Our advice is based on lots of experience. You can avoid a lot of heartbreak by following it.
