When a dog needs a new home and is an acceptable candidate, the SPDR Breed Rep will work closely with owners to help them find an appropriate new home. Breed Reps will sometimes counsel owners, helping them work through problems and enabling them to keep their dog.

An SPDR Breed Rep’s guidance during adoption allows prospective adopters to:

  • Learn more about a particular breed before making a decision to adopt.
  • Determine whether a particular breed is right for their lifestyle and expectations.
  • Avoid spending days or weeks visiting shelters in search of a particular breed.
  • Get a knowledgeable opinion about a specific dog to determine its unique characteristics, adoptability, and appropriate fit for their household.

Most importantly, an SPDR Breed Rep’s commitment continues long after adoption. When questions or issues arise, the adoptive family can ask for advice on health, behavior, and training.
