I have recently rescued a very sweet 6 month old puppy who was starved of not only food, but human affection. Having her has taught me a lot in the few days she has been in my life.
Always give a second chance. No matter what the situation is, all beings, human or animal, deserve a second chance at life.
Can you imagine being beaten or starved and then being told its too much work to let you live?
Rescue dogs love their owners just as much, if not more, than purchased puppies. Even if they dont show it in the same way as other dogs, they have hearts just as big.
They just need some time and work! they need to be shown that not all people are bad... that we understand that not all dogs get easy lives and maybe theirs didnt start off great!
They still deserve to live. They still deserve a loving home with people who treat them like the living, breathing and feeling beings they are!
