Matching dogs of all sizes

HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) Making the right match for an animal up for adoption and their new family is a key role of shelters like Heartland Pet Connection.

Jennie Theesen from Heartland Pet Connection says right now they have a good number of big dogs available for adoption. Dogs like Blue, a blue heeler breed that Theesen brought out to Local4 News at 11:30, say even with the size difference from smaller breeds, making a good match is done the same.

"It's just a different criteria," said Theesen. "That's the great thing about all the dogs we have at the shelter. Everybody is a little bit different personality and temperment."
