Dog Adoption

Dog adoption has been increasing day by day. The answer to why we love dog has still not been cleared by philosophers. Probably, they said we love dogs because they lave us back. Many other think that more and more people are becoming frustrated with the real life, more they are inclined towards pure, non-political, unconditional love that a dog can give. Remembering Ben Williams, "There is no psychiatrist in the world like a puppy licking your face." Truly said someone... "One reason a dog can be such a comfort when you're feeling blue is that he doesn't try to find out why."

Finding a dog for adoption is quite easy - probably quite a lot easier than providing him with the time and care he needs for the rest of his life! Dog adoption may entice you, as you may have seen smart labs or shepherds or dobbies with your friends and relatives. It is a highly responsible task of taking up guardianship of and responsibility for a puppy or an adult dog. You can find dogs for adoption in your locality. If you love dog really, your new family member doesn't have to be a pure breed rottie or a mastiff. You can find mixed breed dogs for adoption from an animal rescue group or animal rescue organization. A dog rescue group is dedicated to dog adoption. They take abandoned and/or abused dogs and always look for new homes for them. If you are in USA, it is easy to find information on breed rescue groups. The American Kennel Club has a comprehensive list of contacts, chiefly within breed clubs, that gives you the information on breed rescue organizations for purebred dogs in adoption

If you are planning for dog adoption, you should drop by a known dog rescue organization that can give you the right kind of information as to why and how a particular dog was rescued. Dogs are rescued or taken to the animal shelters owing to several reasons, some of which are:

Backyard Breeding: Unscientific backyard breeding causes overpopulation of dogs. Breeding for money is dangerous for both both the so called breeders and the pets. Not-so-reputable and unrecognized breeders usually find less number of quality purchasers, who can actually take up the guardianship of a pet in the right manner.

Demise of Dog owners: Sad demise of dog owners is a real pathetic situation for the pet.

Health Issue of the Owner: Many good owners who look for responsible people to adopt their beloved dogs because they experience serious health issues.

Lost Dogs: Rescue teams often rescue lost dogs and look for responsible people who are planning for dog adoption.

Moving abroad: Many people have to leave their countries; quarantine laws in most countries prove to be quite treacherous to pets and their owners. In order to avoid the situation, their owners tend to look for responsible people who are planning for dog adoption.

Big black dog syndrome: Black dog bias is a human psychological problem in which the black dogs are passed over adoption, while the lighter dogs are favored. Many animal shelters often use the term Big Black Dog (BBD) to describe the type of larger black mixed-breed dogs that are typically passed over by novice adopters.
