I think it's quite common for people to think all shelters are equal - and they aren't. In fact, it's just as important to check out the credentials of a those of a breeder. Some of them are so keen to move dogs on that they push difficult dogs on to unprepared owners. Some - particularly from foreign countries - are thinly disguised puppy mills.

If you plan to adopt again, choose your shelter carefully. The good ones will often have back up for owners, from behaviourists - if doesn't mean they are a bad shelter if they don't, Some excellent ones are too small, but for you, I think that would be a good benchmark and a safety net.
