We recently lost our beloved German Shepherd Da Vinci. And although getting a new pet was not a way to replace him, we were lucky enough to find another amazing Shepherd to rescue. We love dogs and we think that adopting and rescuing them from the shelter is the way to go.
Here are some reasons why we think that you should also adopt a dog
Even if you rescue a small dog they can serve as protection. They will bark at strangers and sounds and let you know if something is wrong. In our case we adopt large dogs that help us guard the house and protect me during my walks.
2. You will save a life and change the dog’s whole world
Some shelters do not have a no kill policy. Which means that if they have dogs in there for a while they might kill them to make room for more pets. If you adopt you will be saving a dog's life and you will change that dog life forever. The dog will now have a loving home with food, water and lots of love.
3. You can get an awesome animal
We have been blessed with all our rescued dogs. They love you since the first day they get to your home and they learn really quick the new house rules. Our dogs have been well behaved. Some minor things that we have to teach them, but otherwise most dogs are adults and have passed the destroyers phase.
4. They are usually housetrained
This one is super cool. Most dogs that you rescue were in a house before and they know they do not go to the bathroom inside the house. You still need to pay attention in case that they have an accident, but having a potty trained dog is awesome.
5. You will find your best friend
Tell me about it. My dogs are my best friends. I can tell them everything I know and they will never tell anyone. They will cuddle and snuggle with you and will even give their life for you.
Please remember to adopt and rescue. Pets are forever, so before you get one, make sure they fit your schedule and your life.
