At Saturday's adoption event, I met Evie for the first time. She is a German Shorthaired Pointer. She was used as a breeding dog and then when she stopped producing puppies, she was shot and left for dead. She was rescued and has been in foster care for a year now. She is fully recovered and ready for her new home.
Evie is a pretty large dog, as you can see from this picture.
So it would be nothing short of animal cruelty to force her into a small dog crate like the one pictured below.
So next time you're measuring your dog for a crate, you may want to ask the dog what size they prefer!
