If you haven’t met Howard the Dog, he is one of the most unique dogs I’ve ever met. He is the embodiment of Adopt Don’t Shop and what being a rescue dog means, in my opinion.

Howard took the esteemed honor of winning The American Dog Rescue Show this year which was hosted by The Hallmark Channel. In honor of today, May 20th being National Rescue Dog Day we thought it would be fun to work with Embark Vet who has the premier Doggy DNA Tests. Think 23 and Me but for canines. Many times with rescue dogs there is little to no information about the dog their back story, lineage, and the rescue group has to take the best guess as the breed from what they know.Read More
