I think I've said it before, and I know a lot of other people have, that dogs at shelters are usually there because they had an issue someone else didn't want to deal with.
Now of course that doesn't mean all shelter dogs are bad. It's mostly a notice to people adopting an adult dog, that they need to be prepared, and willing, up front to put some extra time and effort in.
Nontheless, there are always a few naysayers who don't want ANYTHING negative said about shelter dogs. So for those naysayers, here's a fact.
Owens was attacked by a four year-old Alaska Malamute when she and her mom visited an animal shelter operated by the Humane Society of Cambria County in search of a new pet.
Owens says the shelter never put out any warning, or advisory, that the animal - a cross between a husky, and a wolf was aggressive, or, that it should not be around children.
