Every year, tens of thousands of healthy dogs are uselessly euthanized because they don’t have homes. They may have been neglected, gotten lost, or run away. Hopefully they are picked up by the local shelter, but unless they are adopted, they are sadly put to sleep.
Many people think these animals are mangy mixed breeds that aren’t that highly desirable, but that isn’t the truth. Any dog can be a great dog, but even quality pure-bred animals aren’t immune to reality.
Many pure-bred, highly-desirable breeds are lost or neglected every year. These dogs are intelligent animals that, like any domestic animal, deserve loving homes. Finding these dogs table, loving homes can help alleviate the problems of vercrowded shelters and euthanasia. Anyone who takes in a dog–even from a breeder–may be saving the animal’s life.
Dog lovers looking for a new best friend are finding a new partner in their mission…the Internet. Every day, millions of people search online classifieds or dedicated pet-finding sites to find great dogs that all need homes. People looking for a dog can quickly match, screen, and select dog breeders in their area. Breeders of dogs can even find good homes for their puppy litters or adult dogs.
Those who would like a certain breed or pure-bred dog would be wise to check out sites on the Net that specialize in connecting owners and sellers with the animals of their choice. Dog lovers can search for certain breeds in any geographical area, and can screen breeders so they know they’re dealing with reputable people and quality animals.
At the same time, breeders looking to place animals–puppy or adult–can list their services, experience, etc. on the website.
