Why do adoptions fail?

This is one of those questions that gets asked a lot and before we go through this research paper it is really important to know that if you feel you have adopted a dog and it isn’t the right dog for you, for whatever reason, you are definitely better returning the dog to the rescue then living with a dog that doesn’t fit your lifestyle. This is a good decision both for you and the dog. It can be made to feel like you are being criminalised if you decide a dog isn’t for you and return it but there are definitely cases where it is the right thing to do so please don’t feel bad if you find yourself in one of those situations.
