Encourage Dog Lovers to Adopt 💕

It will take all dogs time to adjust to their new surroundings. However, puppy mill survivors often take much more time than other rescue dogs. They’ve had a rough past, but they can eventually learn what love is again. With a dog rescued from a puppy mill, you need to learn to be extra patient and kind. (Click title to read more!)

If you’ve ever adopted a dog before, you’ve probably noticed that large breeds are more common than small breeds at shelters and rescues. Oftentimes, this steers people away from adopting if they’re looking for a small dog. However, Molly prefers small dogs and she still adopts instead of shops, so it’s important for all humans to keep looking at rescues, even if they don’t find their perfect pup immediately.

Pit Bulls are a fairly popular type of dog. Some people love them for their sweet personalities while others prefer their strong appearance. I know Molly adores Pit Bulls too, but what she doesn’t like is when people breed them. Of course, we don’t like dog breeding in general, but right now, there is no reason for people to breed Pit Bull breeds at all. (Click title to read more!)

When most people think of celebrities, they think of people with a lot of money. Sadly, many rich people spend money without a second thought, especially when it comes to dogs. Because of this, I often see celebrities buying puppies instead of adopting, which breaks my heart. However, there are actually a lot of famous people that do support dog adoption, and they proudly talk about their own rescue dogs a lot. (Click title to read more!)

You might notice that a lot of blogs and websites about dogs write lists about specific dog breeds. While these lists are fun to read and write, we don’t have any plans to write them unless they support adoption. It’s not because we don’t like them, but it’s because it’s not really what this blog is all about. (Click title to read more!)

As I’ve mentioned before, some shelters and rescues have very strict adoption requirements. These requirements are in place for the safety of all the dogs and humans involved, but many humans dislike them. In fact, some humans are so against them that they’d much rather buy a dog than adopt, which breaks my heart. (Click title to read more!)

When looking for a dog, many humans avoid kill shelters at all costs. They don’t want to be supporting shelters that kill animals, and Molly and I used to think the same way until recently. But regardless of how a shelter runs, all their dogs still need homes. Kill shelters don’t want to kill their dogs, but the lack of adoptions often leaves them with no choice.

If you ask most humans, they’ll likely tell you that they LOVE dogs, especially if they have a dog of their own. However, I don’t think every human loves dogs in the same way. Many of the people who ‘love dogs’ spent tons of money trying to find the perfect puppy from a breeder, ignoring the fact that dogs are dying in shelters. (Click title to read more!)

Over the years, there have been lots of ways that humans have used dogs for their entertainment. Dog fighting and Greyhound Racing are two examples that are no longer allowed, but dog shows continue on. For the most part, dog shows aren’t bad, but there are definitely some parts that need changing. So, what do rescue dogs think of dog shows? (Click title to read more!)

Working dogs such as service dogs or police dogs are often bred specifically for that purpose. Many people assume that these roles must be taken on by specific breeds or dogs with specific skills, but that’s not always the case. Even though it’s not common, it is possible for rescue dogs to take on important roles. I think it should be made even more common. (Click title to read more!)
