Stamp out the name "Spot" for a Dalmatian!
Banish "Bernie" for a St. Bernard!
Lose "Lassie" for that Collie!
No breed rescue volunteer wants to hear their beloved dogs tagged with a monotonous moniker!
Every dog rescuer on the planet wants every dog owner to creatively name their furry friends, and to avoid the pitfalls of stereotyping a breed with an awful label. These hilarious and sometimes touching stories will inspire the dog-loving world to do just that!
This book is not just a fun list of the ho-hum handles hung on hapless hounds. The goal of Good Dogs with Bad Names is to let the dog-loving public in on the advantages of adopting through purebred dog rescue.
"I've always wanted a (fill in the blank). They look so adorable!" Do you know why that breed you want was designed to look that way? What are the common personality traits? Why is it better to adopt an older dog? Why is it so much less expensive to adopt a purebred than to buy? What will it cost me to maintain the dog? How much exercise does this breed need? Am I able to give this kind of dog the environment it needs to flourish? Where can I go to find a rescue of this breed?
A breed rescuer will tell you straight out whether your lifestyle fits with the dogs they are caring for. Indeed, these volunteers know their dogs so well, the adopter can feel confident that the pup they take home from a breed rescue is not only healthy, heartworm negative and spayed/neutered; the adopter is assured that that individual dog's temperament is a great match for its new family.
Half the profits from the sale of every Good Dogs with Bad Names is donated to rescue. Our Links page can send you to any of the over three dozen rescue organizations featured in the book. When you go to our Buy The Book page, select one of the breed rescues already listed, or feel free to choose another group. At the end of every month, the money will be donated to whichever rescue group you prefer.
The vision of this book is to bring more dogs and their forever families together than ever before. Through education, charity, and love, we will together triumph in the battle against pet overpopulation!
