Over the weekend my sister and I adopted a puppy. His name is Grady, and he is about 5 months old. We got him from a local animal shelter on the south shore. We decided to adopt a puppy from an animal shelter instead of a breeder because we read an article last month that more people are surrendering their pets simply because they cannot afford them. Needless to say, we found it sad. The MSPCA reported an increase of 45% of pets being put up for adaption. The increase is mostly due to the recession with so many foreclosures and people losing their jobs. To make matters worse, on March 31st, MSCPA is closing three shelters also due to the recession.

Below are some pictures of when we first brought him home. He was very shy and scared at first, but within a short week he has opened up a lot! He’s a lot of fun!
