KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A modern fact of life in the world of animal shelters is dogs are moved to where their breed is in demand.
Animal shelters across the country tend to work together -- finding ways to meet the demand. For example, bigger dogs tend to sell better in rural areas.

But as FOX 4's Abby Eden explains the last minute outcome is one the family didn't expect.
