I know you didn’t think I was going to wait any longer to add pictures of my perfect dogs! And why are they so perfect? They’re adopted!
Puppies bought at pet shops are very cute, and very sad. They come from puppy mills and backyard breeders, where no money is spent on the dogs’ comfort – or health. Dogs suffer ammonia burns when they are forced to live in their own urine, and the urine from dogs in cages above them leaks down onto them. This abuse is purely for profit. By buying the cute little doggie in the window you are funding this awful cycle.
Breeders, while not as merciless, are still in it for the money. They breed – and overbreed – the best looking dogs at the expense of their health. Dogs from breeders have a variety of inherent problems from allergies to hip dysplasia.
More importantly, anyone who breeds dogs is carelessly ignoring the overpopulation crisis. SPCAs and shelters are overflowing with perfect dogs, because instead of adopting from these shelters, people are buying from pet shops and breeders. Rather save a life – adopt!
Now, about my dogs….
Charlotte Saffron is a very sweet amputee who doesn’t let her disability slow her down!
Silky-Dog Lucy Elizabeth is the most gentle, silky dog you have ever met! She is just too lovely!
Sir Benjamin is full of energy, and perfectly healthy, at 10 years old!
