RESCUE DOGS. When dogs have not had the best start in life, they are likely to bond very completely and deeply with their new people. Once united with a new loving family, they seem to want to please as much as possible to make sure they are never homeless again. Those dogs that are just learning about the good life and good people seem to bond even deeper. They know what life on the streets, and they delight and thrive in a nurturing, loving environment. Most rescues make exceptionally affectionate and attentive pets and extremely loyal companions.
Unfortunately, many people think dogs that end up in rescue are all genetically and behaviorally inferior. But, it is not uncommon to see $500 dogs that have either outlived their novelty with impulsive owners who considered their dog a possession rather than a friend or member of the family; or simply did not really consider the time, effort and expense needed to be a dog owner. Giving up these dogs usually means putting them out on the already crowded streets. Good rescue foster parents re-home puppies/dogs only when they are ready (shots, neutering/spaying, healthy), to a home that matches and is realistic about the commitment necessary to provide the dog with the best home possible.
Set a good example for your kids. Adopting a rescue dog presents a wonderful opportunity to teach your children the essential values of compassion, caring, and the selfless act of giving someone a second chance.
Choosing a rescue dog over a purchased puppy will not solve the pet overpopulation problem, but it does give many of them a chance they otherwise would not have. But, beyond doing a "good deed", adopting a rescue dog can be the best decision and addition to the family you ever made. There are so many healthy, lovable dogs; it doesn’t make sense to pay money (sometimes A LOT of money) for a dog. Rescue dogs are intelligent, emotional beings that deserve a chance at a long happy life, and the rewards you get from rescuing are far greater than buying a dog. RESCUE A DOG.
