I had been looking just about every three weeks for a dog so I could train him/her for the hearing impaired. I had lost my own dog about two years ago and I was really picky on finding another one. The service with Palestine Animal Shelter was of the most professional. I brought home a pure breed CATA dog, about one year old. So far, she had turned out to be the most devoted, smart is putting it mildy, dog I have ever had, learning to obey by signing. "We" still have a long way to go, but I could not have done this without the warmth and professional people at this particular shelter. I would advise ANYONE looking for the "right pet" to go see them there.I am on my way to training her for a deaf person, so she may have a complete life- -Thanks to the help from Palestine Shelter, "we" owe you!
