While a Japanese Chin is a beautifully charming dog, she probably would not be the best choice for an avid young hiker. And a Portuguese Water Dog would not be a good choice for a senior citizen who is unable to give the dog the exercise and physical challenge that he needs. Discovering incompatibilities after the new pet has been "brought home" usually ends in disaster for the dog.
Statistics show that roughly 25% of animal shelter dogs are purebreds, many of which are dogs purchased impulsively that did not fit the new owner's family or lifestyle. With alarmingly high numbers of "kill shelters" in the United States, these dogs may face death just for being exactly what they are bred to be.
Carol Schwed, owner of Large Dog Fashion Clothes, is dedicated to helping potential dog owners avoid the pitfalls of impulse decisions regarding a canine companion. To spread the word about the compatibility of dog breeds with different lifestyles in a fun way, the company is introducing the new "Name That Breed" contest.
Beginning September 1, 2009, contest participants can review a monthly list of dog breed trivia questions. Each participant can submit one guess for that month's featured breed. The first one to identify and submit the correct breed name through email will receive a $25 gift certificate to Large Dog Fashion Clothes!
By increasing awareness of the positive characteristics of certain breeds and how they work with different people and their lifestyles, the company hopes to decrease the number of dogs sent to the shelters. Large Dog Fashion Clothes also strongly promotes adoption of rescue animals, as well as thorough research before choosing a new pet.
Carol and her husband have adopted many rescue animals for an impressive and wonderful fur family, often saying,
“Saving one dog may not change the world, but for that dog, the world has changed.”
What better way to support the cause of matching the right dog with the right home, have a blast with dog breed trivia, plus get the chance to win fabulous prizes?
The winners will also be featured on individual pages per month and announced in the Large Dog Fashion Clothes monthly newsletter.
