    Special Edition: The Sato Project - https://thesatoproject.org/
    The Sato Project is dedicated to rescuing abused and abandoned dogs from Puerto Rico. There are currently an estimated 500,000 stray dogs roaming the island’s streets and beaches. With no access to food, fresh water, or veterinary care, many of these dogs are living daily lives of severe suffering. The municipal shelter system is drastically overwhelmed, with only five shelters across all 78 of the island’s municipalities. These shelters have a combined euthanasia rate of over 94%. For thousands of stray and abandoned dogs across Puerto Rico, the Sato Project is their only hope.

The BEST dog breed podcast on iTunes!

I found ya’ll while researching the BRT but I am quickly consuming the rest of the episodes. Unbelievably high quality audio and well researched.

I love your advocation for rescues, but the fact that you also understand that some people will be going to a breeder instead. So I appreciate that you are also advocating for quality breeders and warning others about puppy mills. I feel like the divide between rescue vs breeder has become so controversial! A lot of people don’t consider that some people (like me) are searching for a service dog like a mobility support dog, and need to start out with a young puppy that has a high chance of succeeding in service work. So I really appreciate your understanding that some people need a specifically bred dog ❤️

I first found this podcast when they discussed my dog’s breed (American Eskimo). Each episode is adorable and informative. I can’t stop listening.
Also. I’ve used this as something soothing to drift off to sleep. Without fail I dream about puppies!

Pretty great.
We’re on the second set of dales.
Each one different but w some similar traits.
Pete- Clint Eastwood in a dog
Lucy- redneck girl
Boone- crazy breeder but he was chosen for our family and best ever.
And a rescue renamed: Hazel
Lots of bad habits and got hit by a car
Now a 3 legged surfing dog. She just needed a family.
Smart, funny, high verbal iq
Willful
They need activity & interaction.
They aren’t needy. They remain playful their whole lives BUT aren’t ball crazy
Very alert
Can be sleeping but could be ready in a second.
Best dog for my crazy family.
