Are you thinking of getting two puppies at once?
Some training professionals strongly recommend against adopting two puppies at the same time. They feel that owners don’t understand how much time is required to properly care for and train two puppies, and as a result, the puppies can end up improperly trained and out of control.
According to the Humane Society, animal shelters all over the United States help to care for roughly 6-8 million dogs and cats each year. Take a guess as to how many of these animal are put down? They say that right now about 3-4 million of these animals are euthanized each year. That means that nearly one half of animal who don’t find homes are put down. Yes, it is true that there is an overpopulation problem, but what are we doing to help? Killing can’t be the only solution? Well… it’s not. People need to also educate themselves on breed misconceptions. A large number of dog breeds never find homes because they now have a negative stigma associated with them. If we can erase this stigma, more animals can find loving homes.
