All About Dogs

We all know that dogs are man’s best friend, but did you know all these FUN doggie facts?

1. Dogs can hear sounds from farther away AND at higher frequencies than humans. Why are they so much better at hearing than we are? Their ear anatomy and the fact they have ____ muscles in their ears.
2. Basenji is the world’s only barkless dog. True or False?
3. Who named a city after his dog?

Does a dog’s name help them get adopted? The jury is still out, but we do know that a clever name definitely doesn’t hurt! It can be very challenging to come up with unique names for our adoptable dogs. Send us a name suggestion for one of our adoptable dogs at [email protected] with the subject line ADOPTION DOG NAME and we will be sure to pass it along to our adoption staff. Want to give us several name suggestions? Sure! We will submit multiple names if you attach a short essay about why it is important to adopt from a shelter.
