There are many reasons why people abandon their dogs. Generally, it is not the dog's fault and often the decision to take a dog to an animal shelter is based not on emotion but on convenience. It is representative of a society lacking strong values--everything is disposable, including pets. People are encouraged to use excuses for their own behavior--it always is someone else's fault. In this case, it's the dog's fault!

Having a dog is a commitment to that animal for 10-15 years and should be a well thought out family decision based on a thorough investigation of the breed and breeder. Most of the purebred dogs in shelters are housebroken, have some basic obedience, and are well-behaved, affectionate pets. They have not abandoned their families--they are the victims.

How do dogs (and cats) end up abandoned in animal shelters? Its simple--people purchase puppies for all the wrong reasons:

On impulse because the puppy is adorable-all puppies are adorable-actually, all baby animals are adorable but with shorter life spans than humans, they quickly grow into gangly adolescents.

My name is Ace.
I used to be your dog.
I just wanted to tell you how I felt over all those years.
You were my best friend. You always let me sleep with you, and we would go for walks everyday. I always loved it when you got me a new toy, and treats would come daily. When I chewed up your shiny thingy that played music, you just chuckled and gently, but firmly, told me not to do it again. You would always say,"Well he IS a puppy." and everything would be all right.
I would always know when I shouldn't do something again because when I got in trouble you would lightly hit me on the head. That's all it took to know when I was in trouble and I would cry a little because I knew I did something wrong and had hurt you. Then you would pick me up and say "It's all better now Ace. That's my boy."
I would give a soft growl back because that's my way of talking. You would always know what I meant.
We used to go driving all the time. I just loved the wind in my face and one or two of my toys in the backseat. We would go for walks too! and because I was a cute puppy everyone would stop and ask to pet me and of course you let them. Oh how I loved...

My friend got a new puppy dog over the weekend. It was a little Malamute too! He was only young and excited. And within a week they had already got rid of him! Why? Just because he had bit her on the toe! It was only a little scratch and it didn't bleed. I thought they'd keep him cause they've already got like, 5 dogs! But no! They got rid of him. Seriously?! They've also got about 20 lizards and snakes. They've never put one of their snakes down just because it bit them! I just hope the little puppy is OK and they haven't put him to sleep...

Chap. 1
Lily put on her jacket and mitts to get ready for the car to go to Gramma`s for the weekend. Her dog, Flora, gazed at the interesting creatures with her midnight eyes gleaming as bright as the sun. Mom nodded her head, smiling. ``We need to stop getting flora in all this begging,`` she said, giggling. Just in that very moment, Flora jumped onto Lily`s lap, In a sigh of relief.[i]Whew,[i] thought Flora, [i]I like this girl.[i] Lily patted Flora, very gently.
Chap. 2
As soon as they got to the cottage, Mom said "Flora needs energy, from that 2 hour car ride," Patting the little Jack Russel puppy. "Jacks need lots of excersise. Plus, it is another hour away from Gramma. "

Jewel stared up at the strange humans,"What are these strange creatures?"One of the humans pointed at her;another one nodded and reached for her.She jumped back deeper into the box.The human tried again,this time quicker.

He scooped her up and pitched her into a large metal cage.She whimpered and it hit the cage.she heard the humans talking outside of the cage."Yes,they're mutts,but they will make some good dogs."One said."Yes i'm sure my family will be so happy with their new dog."Said the other.

She felt the cage move as she was tossed into a large compartment in the back of a car.The world turned dark,and before she knew it the ground started to move.She fell against the side of the cage and tried to stand up,suddenly she started to get sick.She couldn't help puking.

Finally,to her relief,the car stopped.She heard a door slam,and something came walking around the car,gravel crunching under it's feet.Suddenly,the compartment door opened and light flooded in.

Make sure that the puppy you are getting is right for you. Does its coat suit your climate? Is it small enough to live in your apartment? Do its energy levels suit the amount of exercise it will get? These are all important questions to answer to ensure the well-being of your puppy and the overall happiness of your household.

2
Puppy-proof your house. Puppies love to explore with their mouths, so to keep your puppy and your house safe, you'll need to take a few precautions. Remove breakable items from the area where you plan to keep your puppy. Keep all electrical cords raised or covered and close all low windows. You should also lock away cleaning supplies/chemicals that are toxic to puppies. Get a trash can that is too tall for your puppy to get into and too heavy to be knocked over. Think about getting a folding gate to keep your puppy confined to a certain room or area.

3
Buy necessary supplies. The kitchen or bathroom is an ideal place for the bed because they generally are warm and have washable floors. Here is a list of things you'll need to get you started:

1. My life is likely to last ten to fifteen years. Any separation from you will be painful: remember that before you get me.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me—it is crucial to my well being.

4. Do not be angry at me for long, and do not lock me up as punishment.

5. You have your work, your entertainment, and your friends. I only have you.

6. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don’t understand your words, I understand your voice.

7. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget.

8. Remember before you hit me that I have sharp teeth that could easily hurt you, but I choose not to bite you because I love you.

9. Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate, or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I might not be getting the right food, or I have been out too long, or my heart is getting too old and weak.

The domestic dog (Canis lupus familiaris[3] and Canis lupus dingo[1][2]) is a domesticated form of the gray wolf, a member of the Canidae family of the order Carnivora. The term is used for both feral and pet varieties. The dog may have been the first animal to be domesticated, and has been the most widely kept working, hunting, and companion animal in human history. The word "dog" may also mean the male of a canine species,[4] as opposed to the word "bitch" for the female of the species.[5]

Dogs were domesticated from gray wolves about 15,000 years ago.[6] They must have been very valuable to early human settlements, for they quickly became ubiquitous across world cultures. Dogs perform many roles for people, such as hunting, herding, pulling loads, protection, assisting police and military, companionship, and, more recently, aiding handicapped individuals. This impact on human society has given them the nickname "Man's Best Friend" in the Western world. In 2001, there were estimated to be 400 million dogs in the world.[7]

Because of what I look like, I have to die.

You think that’s harsh? I mean….sure someone in your race, gender or age group has done something bad like kill someone, hurt someone or hurt an animal? Sure someone has, it happens, if an individual does something bad does the whole group have to die?

Well that is a reality I face….

I was born like anyone else; happy, willing to please and incredibly loyal. I loved my mother, father and siblings and they loved me. My home is with people who treat me right and love me for who I am. Then suddenly out of the blue something passed the laws. Something I dread to think about.

BSL.

My family moved to a city without knowing that BSL existed there. That’s understandable; no one knows the laws everywhere. This one day my family was walking with me like normal and a police officer found us. He arrested my family and shoved me into a truck.

I don’t know what happened with my family but now I’m in gaol and I have to die. Why? Because someone in my kind has done wrong, and because they have done wrong, I, along with the rest of my kind have to die for it.

Jack Russell Terrier Dogs are absolutely bursting with energy. They possess a ready attitude, alertness, confidence, and great strength and endurance. These kinds are also characterized as happy, bold, energetic and their greatest attribute is their working ability possibly followed by their excellent qualities as companion due to a unique personality of being highly intelligent and assertive by nature. Nevertheless, the uniqueness of its kind is not considered as a dog-for-everyone because they, aforehand, are bred to hunt.

In fact, to have one is considered a big obligation for an owner. Jack Russell Terriers need a regular exercise and a need to have a job whether it be keeping a yard free of rodents, ball games, or even just going for a run or long walk with its owner. I even happened to have owned one and definitely true, that having a child under age of six with this kind of dog, can exactly be a problem, since having the natural assertive terrier characteristics, however, will not put up with even unintended abusive behavior from my child. Oftentimes, a play from her pet can lead to a close fight making my child unable to understand the harsh part of the...

This statue of Bobby sits at the corner of Edinburgh's Candlemaker Row and George IV Bridge, and is a Category A listed building
Greyfriars Bobby was a Skye Terrier who became known in 19th-century Edinburgh after reportedly spending 14 years guarding the grave of his owner, John Gray, until he died himself on 14 January 1872. A year later, Lady Burdett-Coutts had a statue and fountain erected at the southern end of the George IV Bridge to commemorate him.
Several books and films have been based on Bobby's life, including the novel Greyfriar's Bobby (1912) by Eleanor Atkinson and the films Greyfriars Bobby (1961) and The Adventures of Greyfriars Bobby (2006).

The story

Bobby belonged to John Gray, who worked for the Edinburgh City Police as a night watchman, and the two were inseparable for approximately two years. On 8 February 1858, Gray died of tuberculosis. He was buried in Greyfriars Kirkyard, the graveyard surrounding Greyfriars Kirk in the Old Town of Edinburgh. Bobby, who survived Gray by fourteen years, is said to have spent the rest of his life sitting on his master's grave. Another account[citation needed] has it that he spent a great deal of time at Gray's grave, but that he left regularly for meals at a restaurant beside the graveyard,...

Hachikō
Hachikō (born November 10, 1923–March 8, 1935), known in Japanese as chūken Hachikō (忠犬ハチ公?, "faithful dog Hachikō" ('hachi' meaning 'eight', a number referring to the dog's birth order in the litter, and 'kō,' meaning prince or duke)), was an Akita dog born on a farm near the city of Ōdate, Akita Prefecture, remembered for his loyalty to his owner, even many years after his owner's death.

In 1924, Hidesaburō Ueno, a professor in the agriculture department at the University of Tokyo took in Hachikō as a pet. During his owner's life Hachikō greeted him at the end of the day at the nearby Shibuya Station. The pair continued their daily routine until May 1925, when Professor Ueno did not return. The professor had suffered from a cerebral hemorrhage and died, never returning to the train station where Hachikō was waiting. Every day for the next nine years the golden brown Akita waited at Shibuya station.

Hachikō was given away after his master's death, but he routinely escaped, returning again and again to his old home. Eventually, Hachikō apparently realized that Professor Ueno no longer lived at the house. So he went...

History

Unlike most breeds, the origin of the Boston terrier is well-documented. Around 1865, the coachmen employed by the wealthy people of Boston began to interbreed some of their employers' fine dogs. One of these crosses, between an English terrier and a bulldog, resulted in a dog named Hooper's Judge. Although Judge weighed over 30 pounds, he was bred to a smaller female, and their son was in turn bred to another smaller female. Their progeny, probably interbred...

It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon. The light breeze was making the leaves of the trees rustle lightly and the birds were chirping their afternoon songs. In a small yard there lay a dog on the soft, green grass. This dog was brown and white patched, and had light green eyes. She had no ears, as they were cut off when she was a puppy, but her ear canal remained, so she could still hear.

As the dog chewed on her bone, a teenage girl stepped into the backyard. The dog looked up and saw her 14 year old owner, Sally. Sally had tanned skin, with dark brown hair tied into a ponytail, a triangular shaped face and almond eyes. Sally was tall and athletic looking.
“Mum, can I please take Princess for a walk?” Sally called toward the direction of the house. The dog, whose name was Princess, stood up and wagged her tail, she liked going on walks.

A voice came from out of the house, “Of course, but be back before dinner.” Princess wagged her tail so hard it threatened to fall off. Sally grabbed the lead and clipped it on Princess’s collar and walked out of the yard.

mc duff special

vanilla rice pudding and sausages

you will need
-------------

* 100 gm pudding rice
* 284 ml full milk
* butter for greasing
* a dash of vanilla essence
(optional)
* frankfurters or other sausages


how to make it
----------------

mc duffs favourite comfort food, or reward when he's been specially good, is a dish of warm rice pudding with a sausage chopped on top. Bearing in mind that normallt only puppies eat rice pudding (some breeders swear by it) and sausages could be rather salty for dogs here's how to make it. please don't add sugar! butter a small metal or pottery baking dish. put in the rice and cover it with the milk. add vanilla (if your dog likes it!) and bake for 45-50 minutes as gas 3,160c,325f. serve with chopped sausages

You will need
-------------

* peanut butter
* savoury dog treats
* hard cheese (i.e cheddar)
* yoghurt
* apple of banana or carrots
* home-made chicken stock


what to do
-------------

when you have to leave him/her home alone,keep your dog harmlessly entertained (and out of dustbin) by filling a hollow rubber toy with some treats. try some of these.....

1. layer the toy with peanut butter and a small savoury dog treats and freeze overnight.

2. plug the small hole with a peice of hard cheese , then fill the rubber kong with plain yoghurt and small chunks of apple and banana or carrot . freeze overnight.

3. plug the small hole with a peice of hard cheese , then stand at the kong in a cup or bowl and fill with home-made chicken stock and freeze overnight - this makes a low caloie ice lolly!


these fillings can be used in empty marrow bones too.

So do the right thing and stop or someone's ganna catch you and call The cops!

He made it into the book because he is over 7 ft tall and weighs 245 pounds. He is the 'Greatest Dane' around!Just think about how much George eats per day! His owner, David Nasser, has to feed him about 110 lbs. of chow each month.

Can you imagine what a stir he causes when David takes George for a walk in the neighborhood? One thing is fore sure, none of the other dogs are sure to mess with him. When you are a dog as big as Giant George, other pups show some respect!

As you already know, labs do not come in gray, but some poeple are scammed off into thinking they do, and that they have a rare color in special breeding. Wrong! What people make off as a blue lab is really just a regular ole lab mixed with a Weimeraner, giving the dog the look of a lab with the blue-gray color of the other breed. I saw someone who was marhcing around like they owned the place with the "blue lab." It was hilarious because they didn't know they had a mixed breed they paid 400 dollars for!
These are not labs. If you've heard of these or haven't, now you know.

Or so we think,anyway.
My grandma lives down the road from me.And she said Pedro,my dog,was asleep on her porch and she heard a car go down the road.All of a sudden she heard Pedro bark and he ran down the road to where the car had gone.Then,he came back and was running around her house as if he were gaurding it.Then,he ran back down the road.
That's what my grandma told me today,and I believe it,because whenever someone comes to visit,he starts barking and sometimes even growling.I think he's a good dog,and I'm glad he's so protective of my family.

I have a very cute chihuahua called Holly!
She is so cute! She is still a puppy. There's a lot of other dogs that look like her. We got her from a dog shelter. Her mother was a stray. She was the runt of a litter of five so she is quite small. When we bought her she was the only one of her litter left in the shelter, the rest had already been adopted. She loves to swim in the shallow (very shallow) end of our pool. Well, she doesn't exactly swim she just waddles. She loves getting wet for some reason. When ever we get the hose out she jumps in front of it. In the picture she is still very young, that was what she looked like when we adopted her.

I learned the lesson that some new dog owners learn when I bought my first dog. I had had childhood dogs, but I was ready for a small housedog that I could care for all on my own. After being in such a hurry to get one, I visited a pet store and found a cute litte fur-ball. I had done some research on the kind of dog I wanted, but this particular weekend I ended up buying a dog from a breed I knew nothing about. A papillon.
The pet store employees gave me a lot of misleading information, I guess to make sure they would make the sale. I was told that he would shed one time, then never again, wrong. I was told he had already been neutered (he was about 8 weeks when i bought him), that also was untrue. He was the last of his liter so I'm sure he was the runt. I have went through a lot with this dog, but I love him because he is worth the trouble.
I wonder though if he is really a full bred papillon or if he is mixed. I have his papers from the pet store, and where he was bred, but he has not turned out to look like the butterfly dog he was supposed to. If anyone owns a papillon or knows more about the breed and can give me more information please do. Look at the...

Dolly
Recently I wrote a book about a dog. It is the life story of a stray dog, the struggles she faces, and her hopes for survival that keep her going. She is an American Eskimo Dog named Dolly who is born in the forest. She grows up learning the ways of the forest and how to survive, but when she sees a human house nearby, she gets curious and visits it. She was always told before she left the barn to stay away from the houses, but Dolly did not think they were bad. Dolly does not think it is bad until she is taken to a vet clinic.
Lost in this new world, she is confused and she just wants to return home. While Dolly is at the clinic, she meets another dog, a mixed breed named Stella. Stella has been through a lot and tells Dolly all she needs to know. Dolly wants to get back to her forest, and Stella finally agrees to go with her. So when they escape, they are lost in the big city. Little does Dolly know that she is really far away from home.
Years pass and Dolly struggles through life, discovering more about life than many other dogs who just worry about when their next meal will be. Dolly discovers that not all humans are good, and cruelty is all around...

Hey everyone, i have a gorgeous dog named Ben, who i have had much before i was born due to my mum buying benny 2 years before i was born. He is a black labradore, around 100 years old iin dog years and has got suspected diabeties and is deaf.Ben is the best pet anyone could ask for. by the way ben isnt into jumping around and licking peopple, he just has a nice personality. Just recently, Ben was attacked by 2 very vicious dogs which lived 2 houses up from us. We were about to leave for school, until Ben raced out the gate. he noticed 2 big dogs roaming around up the hill, so like any other dog would, ben raced up there. the 2 big dogs zoomed straight to ben and ganged up on him. one of the dogs jumped on bennys back and the other bit him on 2 of his legs (leaving a hole) and on his neck. by the way, ben had never been in a 'fight' before, so he did not fight back or try to attack them. after ben had been held down for about 40 seconds, a very nice man from across the raod from them marchd across the road and kickd the 2 dogs so they ran off. poor benny limped down the hill and back inside. i sincerely thank that man very very much for saving our beloved dog. Thanks everyone!...

If you're considering adding a dog to your family, please consider adopting one from a shelter. I found the following story written by Janine Allen and thought it very important to share. The following was written by Janine Allen, not me.

Her eyes met mine as she walked down the corridor peering apprehensively into the kennels. I felt her need instantly and knew I had to help her.

I wagged my tail, not too exuberantly, so she wouldn't be afraid. As she read my kennel card I hoped that she wouldn't feel sad about my past. I only have the future to look forward to and want to make a difference in someone's life.

She got down on her knees and made little kissy sounds at me. I shoved my shoulder and side of my head up against the bars to comfort her. Gentle fingertips caressed my neck; she was desperate for companionship. A tear fell down her cheek and I raised my paw to assure her that all would be well.

Soon my kennel door opened and her smile was so bright that I instantly jumped into her arms.

The Standard Poodle is the largest of the three breeds of poodle. The breed is elegant and squarely built. The hair is cut so that there is warmth around the ankles. The breed may not look like it but it is a highly regarded retriever of game from rivers. It originated in Germany and most likely descended from the French water dog, the Barbet. Since this is a working dog the need for clipping is so the coat can hinder movement in the water. Other names for the Standard Poodle are Barbone, and Caniche.

The colar of the Golden Retriever's coat has made it one of the most popular breeds. This breed is responsive to training and needs plenty of exercise. This dog can make a great family companion. This breed was most likely bred from crossings of a yellow Flat-coated Retriever and a Tweed Water Spaniel, with other breeds such as the Irish Setter, Labrador, and Bloodhound introduced later. Until the 1920s the breed was called the Golden Flat-coat. Other names for the Golden Retriever are the Yellow Retriever and the Russian Retriever.

The Rottweiler is enormously powerful and muscular but has a very tranquil temperament.Its an enthusiastic worker and is very responsive to training.The breed came close to extinction in the 19th century. The Rottwiler came from a small German town called Rottweil and was used as a butcher's dog, for guarding cattle. It is one of the most popular dogs in the USA today. Mishandling gave the breed a reputation for viciousness. I believe that if you train a dog the right way you can have a really good dog. If you are thinking of getting a Rottweiler study up on the breed and make sure it is the right dog for you.

My dog, Fetch. (Isn't he cute?)
This is a poem I wrote for my dog when I was twelve years old. He's a dumb but adorable black lab named Fetch (even though he DOESN'T fetch) and he used to get into all sorts of trouble. It took my mom four years to finally get to like him. He's 8 years old now...and still as puppyish as ever!

You shed black hair
But I don't care.
You run away
But that's okay.
You're a dull-headed kind
But I don't mind -
'Cause you're my dog.

You beg at the table
Whenever you're able.
You track mud on the floor
Then you track in some more.
Oh the mischief you do!
But I still love you -
'Cause you're my dog.

A few years back, some dedicated Animal Cops came upon a disturbing neglect case that took place in Texas. An animal owner tied their three dogs to a fence where they could not reach food or water. When the Animal Heroes came to the house, they found the three dogs tied up to the fence by a chain leash and were extremely emaciated. All of the dogs were puppies. They put 2 of the dogs in the car with food and water, but, sadly, as they came upon the third dog, they realized, help came to late for him. He had died because his owner kept the dogs outside in 108 degrees weather. They took the other 2 dogs which had survived this and took them to the vet. Afterward, they came back for the owner and arrested him immediately. The owner was charged with neglect and taken into custody.

They went back to the vet to check on the dogs. Both of them had looked as if they had a bright future. So after the vets brought the dogs back to full health, they did tests to see if they could be put up for adoption.

A few years ago, I had a sweet, small dog named Heidi. She was a corgi/border collie mix. She looked like a border collie but was the size of a corgi. Unfortunately, she died. She lived a very, very long life though. Sadly, most of her life, she was miserable, until she came to my family. Before she came to us, she went to 3 families, all of which beat her up which made her blind. When she came to our house, my parents were just fostering her. You could tell how they hurt her because she was always afraid of brooms and scooters. That could just have been because she was blind, but it could also be because she could always remember sounds and associate the sounds with danger. Continuing, when Heidi came to our house, she loved it! She loved the fact that we didn't abuse her like those jerks that adopted her before. So because she loved our house, and we loved her, and because she was a sweetheart, we adopted her. In Heidi's older years, she became deaf along with being blind from the abusers. She was a really sweet puppy who lived to be 17 years old. She was a sweetheart who now will always live in our memories.

Hi am a big dog lover and i can't stand it when i see an abused animal!!
it is sooooooooooo sad!! How can people hurt pour little animals when they haven't done anything to hurt us and all they want is love???
some people make me very ANGRY! My family adopted a dog and he was abandoned on the streets by the people before us and he got hit by a car!! he is 14 years old and i love him very much. I wish people would grow up too because i watch animal cops and some teenagers set a dog ON FIRE because they thought it was FUNNY!! HOW CAN ANYONE BE SO CRUEL???!!! I hate people like that and they need to either be killed or put in jail for their life it is no different than child abuse!!!! And it happens EVERY DAY and just thinking about that makes me so mad! I hope that one day people will stop hurting all those poor animals, and not just dogs other animals like horses, cats, birds, guinea pigs and many other animals!! And if U agree with ME than post a comment about all those retards out there who don't know how to stop hurting animals for fun

Sitka at the animal shelter
Today I got an adorable dog. She is a fully white husky named Sitka. Sadly, she has had a tragic life. She was a stray at birth. Someone picked her up, and found that her eye was severely damaged. So the anonymous person took her to the vet. The vet did surgery and took her eye out. The person took her and put her on the street again. She was a stray for quite awhile. Someone else picked her up and took her to the vet once again. They found out that she is heart worm positive. The person didn't give her the treatment and instead brought her to a pound. No one had adopted her, so they were going to euthanize her. The SPCA was her hero and picked her up about 2 weeks ago, before she was euthanized.

While I was watching the news this morning, I saw her on t.v. This dog's story was so touching, that we adopted her. Now I have an adorable 1-eyed, heart worm positive, sweetheart. Yes, we are going to give her treatment for her heart worm.

She has had a tragic life so far and she is only 2 years old. Anybody that saw the news might now her as Jackie. We changed her name. I'm afraid of what will happen next for her.

Old English Sheepdogs are really great dogs. There are several things you need to consider when you have an Old English Sheepdog. Most Old English Sheepdogs are friendly, couch potatoes. You will also find they have the herding instincts of most sheepdogs. While they are very protective of family and territory you will not find them the best watchdog because they tend to be more affectionate. It may not seem like this dog is very active, however they do require quite a bit of exercise and are full of life.

First you should realize that an Old English sheepdog requires both physical and mental exercise. You will need to take them for walks daily as well as provide link that will be useful and involve their mental capacity. Old English Sheepdogs are also great rescue dogs because of their high intelligence. An Old English Sheepdog will have very long hair, often covering their eyes. Most of these dogs are going to be white and grey in colour. You will also find that they grow to be quite large and need a lot of room to play. The male dogs grow to be 70- 90 pounds and a height of 22 inches. The female dog grows to around 21...
