I see this float around the internet frequently and thought I would address this. This is BS.
I don't know who or how anyone came up with these statistics, but they hold no truth.
Adopting a dog with an unknown history is something that needs to be taken seriously and addressed responsibly. The absolute best thing you can do for a dog that just came into your home is to start a clear routine and establish clear boundaries. Set the dog up for success! Help your dog understand what is and isn't allowed. It takes a huge weight off of dogs when they don't have to try and guess what they should be doing.
The worst thing you can do is bring a new dog into your home and just turn them loose. They more than likely will get into trouble or do something they shouldn't be doing. This is especially critical in homes with other animals and children. Safety first!! If you are consistent, your dog will likely have the routine figured out within a week. Dogs thrive on routine and structure. Ideally your dogs routine should consist of potty breaks, training with their daily meals, play time, crate training, structured walks, and spending time on place with a tie back. While it may be tempting to give your new dog a ton of affection it is best to keep affection limited and meaningful. Structure first, then affection. Also a lot of dogs don't enjoy being kissed on or hugged. It's always best to avoid those kinds of things.
