Today on Facebook (which I really try not to look at very often) – I saw a dog who looked just like mine.
It is the strangest feeling to look at a dog in a KILL shelter – THAT MEANS, IT WILL SOON BE DEAD IF NO-ONE ADOPTS/FOSTERS – who looks like yours.
You think to yourself, I rescued my dog, and for the last eight years, he has been safe. It could have been different for him.
You look at that other dog, and think, they may not get the chance.
Please people, put away your pedigree puppy aspirations and rescue a dog who maybe only has hours, let alone days to live.
Does that designer puppy really mean so much to you that you will condemn a different dog to death?
Because that puppy you buy, means one more dog, that no-one wants, will end up dead in a shelter (that isn’t really a shelter at all – more of a staging post on the way to death).
