By Jan Westmark-Allan Tank – a dog from Big Dog Ranch Rescue. All he wants for Christmas is a forever home!! Get ready for a “feel good” experience right now thanks to some cute puppy dog eyes! Yes, today’s blog is all about adopting a dog (not a horse) – but horse people are dog people, so it makes sense! My spotlight rescue is The Big Dog Ranch Rescue in Wellington, Florida is a not-for-profit no-kill shelter – and they do a great job of finding forever homes for their furry collection of dogs and puppies. I love their website and their ads – and now they have created a great YouTube video with Christmas music and a bunch of sad puppy dog eyes pleading that all they want for Christmas is a forever home! Very, very hard to resist! Some puppy dog eyes that are hard to resist!! Let Santa bring your family an adopted dog this Christmas! Enjoy the video and help Big Dog Ranch Rescue if you can.
