Encourage Dog Lovers to Adopt 💕

Now, I know the title of this post might sound harsh, but hear me out. Almost every family wants a puppy. And who can blame them? Puppies are cute, tiny, and it’s fun to see them grow into their big puppy paws. But as I’ve said before, don’t bring home a new animal just because they’re cute. Even if you think puppies are the cutest things in the world, they might not be right for you. Here are some reasons that most people aren’t ready for a puppy. (Click title to read more!)

If you have a blog like mine, you know that there will be a lot of spam comments. Most of them get filtered out by Wordpress, but every once in a while, I’ll find someone advertising something on my blog. Most of the time, I don’t mind too much, but last week, Molly and I saw a comment that made us both very angry. So, we wanted to remind readers to be careful when reading or posting content online.

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!)

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!)

As many of you know, puppy mills are the one topic Molly and I feel most strongly about. If someone does decide to breed a dog (even though they should adopt instead), we would much, much rather see them go to a responsible breeder instead of supporting a puppy mill. However, sometimes it can be difficult to distinguish the two if you’re not careful. (Click title to read more!)

Labradoodles, Goldendoodles, and just about any other dog mixed with a poodle are very popular right now. Sure, they’re adorable, they’re not even an official breed at all, yet everyone has fallen in love with them. The truth is, Labradoodles weren’t even meant to be a designer breed at all, and the man who created them regrets what he did. (Click title to read more!)

It’s a common rumor that dogs and cats are sworn enemies. In cartoons and movies, the dogs and cats always seem to be plotting against each other. However, that’s not exactly real life. Sure, some dogs and cats can have their feuds, but for the most part, dogs and cats don’t actually hate each other, especially if they’re properly introduced. (Click title to read more!)

If you’re interested in adopting a dog, it might be difficult to find a place to start. There are so many dogs out there that need a forever home. It will likely take a lot of time and effort to find the perfect dog for you, so let’s discuss some of the best places to start looking. (Click title to read more!)

On my blog, I spend a lot of time talking about adopting instead of shopping. It’s something that I believe very strongly in. When given the choice, you should always adopt instead of shop. However, I wanted to point out that breeding dogs isn’t all bad, but irresponsible breeds and too much breeding has made it bad over time. So, when is breeding acceptable and when is it not?
