End the insanity

Platful puppy

Picture stolen from Help a Puppy on faceBook

Having just read a plaintive post on FaceBook from a caring animal welfare and rescue worker, I have to ask myself if the current economic crisis is a reality.

Why are people still buying puppies from pet shops and breeders? WHAT MAKES THEM SO MAD? How can they justify spending hundreds of Euros on the product of what is likely to be some poor brood bitch doomed to live her life in filth and squalor while producing a constant stream of litters?

Don’t they live in the same financial crisis as the rest of us?

The psychological and physical damage done to these poor creatures does not bear thinking of – which is probably why buyers of puppies from pet shops and breeders don’t think about it. They live in a fantasy world where the mother is also cute and cuddly, living in the lap of luxury and loved by all who surround her. In reality, she probably lives in her own faeces and urine.

WAKE UP!

Pet shops begrudge every cent they have to spend on their livestock and that is why they are displayed in wire cages with only newspaper to play with (oh, yes, puppies love to play!) and why many of their puppies become/are ill. Breeders see puppies as a product. A puppy that looks different or is not as appealing as its litter mates will have its neck wrung and appear in the food bowl, possibly, of it’s own mother. Breeders too, spend as little as possible on their crops.

THINKING OF BUYING A PUPPY? DO NOT DO IT – MAKE YOURSELF PROUD – ADOPT A PUPPY!

Rescue centres are full of adorable puppies – you will be spoilt for choice – and some of them will be those that cost hundreds of Euros but did not last long because the new owner had no idea how to house train them.

Puppies from a rescue centre will probably have received a thorough medical check up and any vaccinations that are required.

Puppies from a rescue centre will be a little bigger than those from a pet shop or breeder but there is a good chance that someone has tried to house train them. Even if the puppy you adopt is not house trained, the rescue centre workers will tell you exactly how to obtain rapid results so that you will not have many accidents.
