Not too long ago I introduced a pup in a blog post. (here, I hope)
I wanted to give an update: she has been adopted to a very good home who will train her well.
She’s not living with us anymore; we decided to foster her and give her to someone more worthy.
Anyway, with this update I wanted to send a message to anyone thinking of getting a new pet.
There are so many great animals waiting for good homes. They need love and are willing to give it to someone who’ll care for them.
My entire life, our animals have been rescues. Every single one of our cats are rescues or babies of rescues. Two of our three dogs were rescues.
I’m not trying to guilt you into anything; if you want to shop for a pure bread, then go for it. But try to give to those who were born in unfortunate circumstances.
Adoption is happy, when done correctly.
And lastly, be aware of your local shelter and/or animal rescues in your town. They may need volunteers, donations, foster homes, or even just more notice that they exist.
