There are many reasons why people abandon their dogs. Generally, it is not the dog's fault and often the decision to take a dog to an animal shelter is based not on emotion but on convenience. It is representative of a society lacking strong values--everything is disposable, including pets. People are encouraged to use excuses for their own behavior--it always is someone else's fault. In this case, it's the dog's fault!

Having a dog is a commitment to that animal for 10-15 years and should be a well thought out family decision based on a thorough investigation of the breed and breeder. Most...

In the 1860s, two stray 狗 called Bummer and Lazarus were 给 the run of the city of San Francisco at a time when any other stray dog would have been rounded up and thrown in the pound. But Bummer and Lazarus were different—they were celebrities. The newspapers of the 日 reported their doggy exploits as if they were Posh and Becks 或者 Brad and Angelina. If they got into a fight with rival dogs, the papers often printed an exaggerated account of it the 下一个 day, complete with eyewitness testimony and a dramatized cartoon of the event. Even Mark Twain took time out from working on Huckleberry...

Just one look at Bud Nelson is enough to tell 你 that he was the greatest dog who ever lived. He’s an old-timey dog wearing goggles in a scratchy black-and-white photo—if he hadn’t existed, he would have been dreamed up for a steampunk novel 或者 Bioshock game. The human in the 照片 is Bud Nelson’s owner, a doctor called Horatio Nelson. Horatio was the first man to 交叉, 十字架 America 由 car in the 年 1903, with his hilariously named co-driver Sewall K. Crocker and, of course, Bud. That made Bud the first dog to 交叉, 十字架 the United States 由 car.At the time, the automobile was still in its...

Bob was born in South Australia in 1882, and for some reason he loved trains. He spent the early years of his life as a stray, following railway workers to work, until he was rounded up 由 a dogcatcher. It looked as if he was destined for the pound, but luckily for Bob he was bought 由 a kindly station guard who’d taken a liking to him. It worked out well, as his new master allowed him to ride the train with him in the guard’s 面包车, 范 every day. But, eventually, his master got a promotion and he and Bob parted ways. Then Bob started to jump trains alone.Bob traveled up and down Southern Australia,...

There are plenty of stories of 狗 who stood vigil for dead masters for years afterward. Among the most well-known loyal 狗 were Hachiko, from Japan, and Greyfriars Bobby, from Scotland. Hachiko and Greyfriars Bobby have had numerous 图书 and even films made about them. But the loyal dog who was most famous during his own lifetime is probably the least well-known. Fido was born in Italy sometime during World War II. He was found on the verge of death 由 a kiln worker who took him 首页 and nursed him back to health. And for this, he’d have Fido’s unwavering loyalty for the rest of his...

As 你 already know, labs do not come in gray, but some poeple are scammed off into thinking they do, and that they have a rare color in special breeding. Wrong! What people make off as a blue lab is really just a regular ole lab mixed with a Weimeraner, giving the dog the look of a lab with the blue-gray color of the other breed. I saw someone who was marhcing around like they owned the place with the "blue lab." It was hilarious because they didn't know they had a mixed breed they paid 400 dollars for!
These are not labs. If you've heard of these 或者 haven't, now 你 know.

或者 so we think,anyway.
My grandma lives down the road from me.And she 说 Pedro,my dog,was asleep on her porch and she heard a car go down the road.All of a sudden she heard Pedro bark and he ran down the road to where the car had gone.Then,he came back and was running around her house as if he were gaurding it.Then,he ran back down the road.
That's what my grandma told me today,and I believe it,because whenever someone comes to visit,he starts barking and sometimes even growling.I think he's a good dog,and I'm glad he's so protective of my family.

In 1966, the World Cup was being held in England which, to the English, was kind of a big deal. Maybe the reason they were taking it so seriously was because they had a feeling they might win—which they did—so 你 can imagine how bummed they were when the World Cup was stolen just four months before the matches started. There was a frenzy to find the cup and avoid international embarrassment, and it was eventually found 由 a plucky 牧羊犬, 大牧羊犬 named Pickles. Pickles was being walked 由 his owner when he sniffed something out in the bushes—what Pickles had found was the missing World Cup.In...

The Saint Bernard is a dog that was specifically bred for a single purpose—to 搜索 and rescue. Monks at the Saint Bernard Pass, a dangerous, snowy divide between Switzerland and Italy, bred them for hundreds of years—perhaps even as far back as 1695—to rescue travelers who got 迷失 and buried in the snow. They traveled in pairs so that when they found a victim, one dog could dig them out and sit on them for warmth while the other headed back to the monastery for help. Which brings us to the 秒 Saint Bernard on our list—Barry, who saved 40 people’s lives over the course of 12...

It’s generally believed that Owney’s original owner was a mail clerk because, just as Bob the Railway dog was obsessed with trains, Owney loved the scent and texture of mail bags and followed them 由 land, train, 或者 船, 小船 wherever they went. When Owney’s owner left for whatever reason, Owney stayed behind at the post office with his precious mailbags. After a while, Owney began to follow the bags, first in mail wagons and then on mail trains. He started to rack up miles, traveling through the county, then the state, and finally the whole United States. Mail clerks were happy to let him...

The colar of the Golden Retriever's 涂层, 外套 has made it one of the most 流行的 breeds. This breed is responsive to training and needs plenty of exercise. This dog can make a great family companion. This breed was most likely bred from crossings of a yellow Flat-coated Retriever and a Tweed Water Spaniel, with other breeds such as the Irish Setter, Labrador, and Bloodhound introduced later. Until the 1920s the breed was called the Golden Flat-coat. Other names for the Golden Retriever are the Yellow Retriever and the Russian Retriever.

 My dog, Fetch. (Isn't he cute?)
My dog, Fetch. (Isn't he cute?)
This is a poem I wrote for my dog when I was twelve years old. He's a dumb but adorable black lab named Fetch (even though he DOESN'T fetch) and he used to get into all sorts of trouble. It took my mom four years to finally get to like him. He's 8 years old now...and still as puppyish as ever!

You shed black hair
But I don't care.
你 run away
But that's okay.
You're a dull-headed kind
But I don't mind -
'Cause you're my dog.

你 beg at the table
Whenever you're able.
你 track mud on the floor
Then 你 track in some more.
Oh the mischief 你 do!
But I still 爱情 你 -
'Cause you're my dog.

 Hachikō
Hachikō
Hachikō (born November 10, 1923–March 8, 1935), known in Japanese as chūken Hachikō (忠犬ハチ公?, "faithful dog Hachikō" ('hachi' meaning 'eight', a number referring to the dog's birth order in the litter, and 'kō,' meaning prince 或者 duke)), was an Akita dog born on a farm near the city of Ōdate, Akita Prefecture, remembered for his loyalty to his owner, even many years after his owner's death.

In 1924, Hidesaburō Ueno, a professor in the agriculture department at the 大学 of Tokyo took in Hachikō as a pet. During his owner's life Hachikō greeted him at the end of the day...

Rolf was either the smartest dog in history 或者 the center of a scam that fooled a nation—specifically Nazi Germany. Either way, then, he was pretty awesome. According to the Nazis, Rolf could talk. To put this into context, the Nazis backed a lot of hair-brained schemes during World War II, and one of the most hair-brained was trying to train an army of super-intelligent 狗 to share their ideals.The smartest of these “super dogs” was Rolf. Apparently, Rolf was able to talk 由 tapping his paw against a board and using a sort of special dog Morse code to communicate with humans. It was...

狗 are abused every single day, why 你 may ask? Because most dog owners are evil adults who think they can get a dog to do whatever they want the dog to do. Well, i'm here to say that that we need to stop dog bullying! 狗 get abused over 71%! Don't 你 think that this is wrong? because i do. 狗 are not slaves, they are like us, free to do whatever they want (except going potty in the house of course) So we need to stop being mean to our beloved 动物 and treat them like friends. In our store called dog ......., some of the 狗 are actually scared with the humans becuase they think they are going to get hit like the 前一个 owner, but with our kind and loving employees they know that they will get loved and they become happy. we need to start filling this word with Happy dogs!!! give a big thumbs up and leave a 评论 below if 你 agree with this article!

(if 你 have a different option than go ahead and share it with us! i 爱情 hearing other's options in stories.)
