Adoption is the most loving act of kindness that you can show an animal. Don’t buy from breeders.
Did you know that some breeds of dogs have been so in-bred that they can suffer from specific medical problems because of their genetics? For example, bulldogs have trouble breathing and can suffer from severe sleep apnea. The surgery to correct these problems is dangerous because of their small snouts. Additionally, large breeds of dogs can suffer from hip and joint problems.
Who says a mutt can’t be as beautiful as a pure-bred? Maybe we should re-define “beauty.”
