Just about everyone on the planet knows chocolate is toxic to dogs. But there are many other food items that are dangerous for your dog to consume.
Before we were aware of this one, we noticed Yellow was reluctant to eat grapes that fell on the floor. Good thing, too! Grapes have a toxin that can cause severe kidney or liver damage, even in small amounts. Also be wary of giving your dog human cookies that may contain raisins.
Special-needs dogs are probably the least sought-after adoptable pups, and the ones who need help the most. One rescue, The Mia Foundation, recently took in and rehabilitated a pup with “Swimmer Puppy Syndrome,” a birth defect that prevents a dog from standing or walking. Watch the inspirational story here, and remember to give all dogs a chance!

As if meeting Yellow isn’t enough, you’ll get free training tips from professional trainer Beverly Ulbrich and connect with other dog owners in the San Francisco dog community.
