But is your adorable dog or cat now driving you crazy?
Don't feel bad! When you look at your little fur-ball of joy, you can pat yourself on the head
(I mean back) and feel good. You did the right thing. You saved a life. And
you've eased the burden shouldered by pet adoption and rescue organizations.
But maybe now you've got mixed feelings. I know; I've been there. After the initial glow of the pet adoption wore off, argh! Your adorable fur-ball of joy morphed into the monster pet.
Specialized Advice for Owners of Rescued Pets
Did you make a mistake by adopting or rescuing your new furry friend? No. Sometimes adopted pets have special needs, so you need specialized advice.
Now you can get that advice free right here at this Web site! Pet Tails features short, to the point articles. (Short enough that you can get through one while the new puppy takes a nap!)
Pet Tails is designed especially for owners of adopted dogs and cats. You won't hear about the latest in "showing dogs" or "breeding to type." Pet Tails focuses on the experiences of life with family pets.
As a former animal shelter volunteer, veterinary technician, and owner of six shelter critters , I've seen a lot. Pet Tails contains my best advice for people like you, who have chosen pet adoption but need specialized guidance on dealing with that neglected, abused, or undernourished dog or cat.
Got a Dog? Get the Book!
If you need even more advice RIGHT NOW, check out my new book Happy Hound: Develop a Great Relationship with Your Adopted Dog or Puppy. Like the Pet Tails site, this book is filled with practical tips and techniques you can use today. Unlike many books, Happy Hound doesn't give you hard and fast rules. Mostly, it focuses on helping you understand why your dog does what he does. You'll be armed with the information you need to know to raise a wonderful family pet you can live with for years.

adoption woes. (You can read their stories here.)
As you can see, my pets' behavior and medical problems have often stumped me. When I get answers, I share them with you in articles on the Pet Tails Web site.
So if your chewing, scratching, barking, peeing, yowling, pooping, growling, spraying, straying, chasing, disappearing, slightly loony, or awfully sickly shelter or rescue pet is driving you up the proverbial scratching post, don't despair.
