This is Miley after he was rescued and cleaned up. So beautiful!
Don’t go out and buy an expensive, fancy dog when you can save a life that will not make it without your help. Our shelters are being over-run with animals. Rescue groups are over-whelmed trying to take care of all they have. Think about adopting an older dog if that suits your lifestyle better. Every one doesn’t need an active puppy. There are so many blind and deaf dogs and cats who need a loving home also. Please consider them if you can.
And always involve your support system of family and friends as to you would be most willing to be God parent to your precious new addition if something awful would happen to you. You don’t want them to have to go back to a shelter. Have play dates with friends and family and get everyone comfortable with each other.
Make these animals really a part of your life. Please don’t chain them to a tree. What kind of life is that? They need a securely fenced yard to run and play in. With you. My neighbor’s dog was home alone for as much as twelve hours a day pretty much every single day. Let’s see they can’t read a book, they can’t watch tv. No one to play with. Can’t you imagine how boring that would be. And a dog or a cat needs a good, secure insulated dog house that properly fits it’s own size so that it’s body heat can be trapped in to keep them warmer during the cold.They need fresh clean wheat straw to keep warm. They love a good, soft blanket. But most of all they love to be in the house with you! Sleep with you! Nothing pleases a dog more than being by your side as much as possible. You are their job. They want to protect you and please you. You treat your animal right and they will give you more love than you could ever imagine. It’s not that hard just put yourself in their fur and walk a few miles. Walk a few miles around the city without your shoes as a matter of fact looking for food and water. Looking for shelter. Looking for a safe place to have your babies and care for them. Then how are you going to care for them, feed them and keep them safe. Do you see what stray, lost and unwanted animals face? And by the way black animals are the least adopted from shelters as well as ugly ones. Be an animal hero, go adopt one. A black one. An old one, A blind one, A deaf one. Just please go adopt one. More than that make a true member of your family living inside, playing and being loved and cherished by you. You will be glad you did. Please repost this a thousand times over. Thank you for reading it. And giant hugs from me to you if you do adopt or help out in any way. I would love to see pics.
