Often when you adopt a dog from an animal shelter it’s a mixed breed. But in this day of designer dogs and DNA testing, shelter animals are getting re-branded and perhaps increasing their chances of adoption.
Two newly minted designer dogs share a room at the SPCA for Monterey County. “So this is Tom and he’s with Champ. Champ a lot of people thought was Chihuahua. It’s was kind of hard to guess what other parts were,” says Beth Brookhouser, Director of Community Outreach at SPCAMC.
