Animals are definitely God's gift to this planet. If you're like me, then you'll 100% dig this board's content.
I loved this article! These breeds are incredible.
Of course shelter dogs and Rescues are wonderful (I've got one), but I'm going to play devil's advocate and say that taking your time, doing your homework and getting the right dog for your lifestyle from a good breeder in the first place is absolutely okay and would keep a whole lot of dogs off the streets and out of shelters. I know--I'm involved in local and regional Rescue in Houston. Too rarely is the real cause of shelter surrenders and pet abandonment placed squarely where it really belongs: on irresponsible OWNERS. They're the ones who bought or took in a pet impulsively, and sadly they fail their pets in droves every single day.
In short, demand fuels supply. If we stop perpetuating dog mill ignorance, less "imperfect" dogs would be slaughtered and abandoned.
I have PTSD and my little Yorkie/Pom/Chihuahua was just what the doctor ordered. Since he isn't a purebreed he is going to be healthy and have less genetic disorders than other dogs. His small size makes him portable and great for most spaces, he's got great energy which is wonderfully entertaining, yet his attachment to me lends itself to quiet times and napping too. He was quickly trained (potty and crate) and would probably be even better if I could have socialized him earlier. He is my best friend.
Hate that you just had to be debbie downer,and list all the things that could go wrong ! Way to cheer us up!
As a 20-year veteran of companion animal rescue, I say we MUST talk about "what can go wrong" to avoid the thousands of "mistakes" that wind up abandoned. The general public does not know what they could be getting into - especially with "pocket pets/started pets" (like rabbits and hamsters) until they are educated. Only by outing the facts of living with any type of animal can we achieve a world where animals are honored and cared for as they have a right to be.
