Being greeted by a pet dog at your doorstep when you return after a long tiring day takes away all the stress. This same emotion can be created with a pup you haven’t bought but adopted. Since historical times, dogs have been a man’s best friend, so try and cherish that friendship by not buying it but creating it out of love and care. On Indian streets, you find many pups fighting harsh weather. Half of them die as they are not able to cope with extreme weather conditions. So all you have to do is give life to an already born!
KHURKI lists out 10 reasons why you should prefer adoption over buying a dog!
You grow spiritually
Helping out a puppy in pain, feeding it or providing it shelter is something that should definitely be counted as good karma. Chanting of words might or might not be heard by God, but actions like these definitely boost your karma score.
It makes you a better human being
Life is beyond monetary value, be it of a human or a dog. If you understand that and believe in genuine love for your dog, you are indeed a better human. At least when compared to those who prefer to buy a pup.
It is more genuine
If you adopt and not buy, your love for the four-legged pet is going to be evidently genuine. Those keeping pets with their power to purchase would end up handing over the care of their pets to their domestic helps. Personal touch is bound to be missing.
Buying is wrong
Those buying expensive dogs are definitely not true dog lovers. When you surrounded by suffering, how can you buy a pet who’s already definitely living in perfect conditions. Why not buy? Because many people buy breeds belonging to different countries with different weather conditions. And, majority of these dogs suffer because they get nothing of what they belong to and need!
You will see true gratitude in its eyes
Every lick he showers you with, your pup will bless you and love you for obvious reasons. Somebody around you 24X7 with so much love and sense of gratitude is a boon. You are bound to have a healthy and happy life.
Lead by example
For your family and your friends, you will set a really good example. And every person with a kind heart will love and appreciate your gesture.
You will be a Hero!
Adopting a pup from a street, who’s suffering the harshness of the weather is actually like saving it from the claws of death. And undoubtedly, it is a heroic act.
Why a street dog?
Adopting a street dog is a better idea because they have the adaptability to the weather conditions. With proper and timely vaccination, they will turn healthier and better dogs than the foreign breeds.
You will be a better parent
Now that’s definitely a BIG plus point. Studies say those who have brought up a pup face lesser difficulties in bringing up a child. With an adopted dog, you have more of a bond which makes you richer with emotions of parenthood. There are various special days even created to celebrate that special intimacy between canine parents and their furry children. They mostly include National Hug Your Dog Day, Dog Parent Appreciation Day (started by Dr Marty Goldstein), and the like. Every day is a celebratory day with your dog! The more time you spend with them, the more you learn about their likes, dislikes, moods, and everything else.
But But But…
A word of caution here. It is a life-long responsibility to be taken care of. Don’t just get motivated and pick up one and later leave him again on the streets. Or end up hating him for your ‘mistake’ committed out of spontaneity of the moment.
