A US republication of a UK guide to choosing an adult dog at a shelter, preparing for the dog's arrival at home, and training to make a well-mannered pet. It packs a lot of information into its short length. I was especially impressed by chapter 2, which describes tests and experiments to be done at the shelter to quickly assess a dog's temperament and reactions. I borrowed this book from the library, but given that we're planning to get a dog in the near future, I'm going to purchase a copy for reference.
