I have recently rescued a very sweet 6 month old puppy who was starved of not only food, but human affection. Having her has taught me a lot in the few days she has been in my life.
Always give a second chance. No matter what the situation is, all beings, human or animal, deserve a second chance at life.
Can you imagine being beaten or starved and then being told its too much work to let you live?
Rescue dogs love their owners just as much, if not more, than purchased puppies. Even if they dont show it in the same way as other dogs, they have hearts just as big.
They just need some time and work! they need to be shown that not all people are bad... that we understand
that not all dogs get easy lives and maybe theirs didnt start off great!
They still deserve to live. They still deserve a loving home with people who treat them like the living, breathing and feeling
beings they are!
People say so often that rescues are hard to train. or they are too much work. They have too many issues and they would just rather have a purebred puppy with papers and a clean slate.
But what if it were you? What if you were kicked every time you made a noise? What if someone tied you to a tree and never fed you? Or what if you were forced to fight to defend yourself or you were killed? How would it make you feel when people told you then, that you werent worth the little bit of extra effort?
You would want them to see that you are
worth it. that you arent bad, and maybe just need a second chance at it all!
Thats what Rescue Dogs are. They are dogs that didnt get an easy start at life. They have problems sometimes and sometimes they just need a place to lay their head until they can learn to love again.
So give them a chance. next time you think about getting a puppy, put down your checkbook and take a trip to the local shelters and rescues. give a home to a dog that really needs one.
In a rescue dog, you will find a friend for life. links to Rescue info and guides to picking a shelter/rescue dog. www.canismajor.com/dog/srcresc…www.completedogsguide.com/dog-…www.dogrescueadvice.com/www.aspca.org/aspca-nyc/adopta…www.americanhumane.org/animals…
I really hope you see that Rescues are just as good as any other dog. they deserve a loving home, so why not open your arms and your heart to a dog that really needs the love?
