Shelter dogs are plenty and we need to look at who and why.
Our shelters worldwide are full of unwanted dogs because we as human beings have dropped the ball in being responsible. Bottom line… Beginning with breeder error in improperly raising their puppies, to puppy mills, to lack of education in raising puppies into adulthood we are ultimately responsible for all these dogs suffering in shelters.
Unless and until we begin to have our eyes open and further the conversation of responsible pet ownership (and I dislike this term ownership) we will see 2015 be yet another year of mass euthanasia in shelters and mistreated dogs. I don’t want to see this happen and hope you’ll join me in speaking up when you see something wrong.
Please help them as they can’t help themselves. We are their only hope. We must be their voice and advocate when it comes to humane education and safety for our dogs and our families.
Learn how to read their body language, train them, exercise them, socialize them. This is loving them; anything else is missing the mark.
