I planned to blog about this then life got in the way of blogging.
October: Adopt a Shelter Dog Month
Save a life of a shelter dog by speaking out and sharing about the joy of adopting. I’m an adoptive mother of one wonderful daughter, many dogs and four rabbits. I must say that the more we can share the joy of adoption, we can show the world that buying a dog does not mean you will get a perfect and healthy animal.
In fact from reading and learning from a few ethical dog breeders (who buy back their puppies for life, making buyers sign a contract to always bring the dog back to them) healthy purebred dogs end up hard to find.
Why? Well, even AKC breeders have been reported to turn out sick puppies, by inbreeding genetic weakness. Many popular breed dogs come with scary and heartbreaking illnesses. Read my post on this investigative report “Today Show: American Kennel Club Approved Puppy Mill.”
Please read and share.
Mutts benefit from vigor, unique looks and temperament. Plus those who want a purebred dog have hundred’s to choose from in breed specific rescues. So here’s to Adopt a Shelter Dog Month and The Animal Rescue Site.
Thanks for caring and sharing, Deborah Taylor-French
