Many actions around the world are taken to educate people that they shouldn’t buy animals, but adopt them from shelters instead.
Adult dogs in shelters do not have it easy. Especially if you are of a race that is considered dangerous. People are afraid that they will not be able to cope with a large dog, which already has its habits. They forget about the important fact that such dogs have experienced a terrible fate, abandoned and lonely, and for a small gesture and warm hand, dogs would give man their entire heart.
Dogs have high intelligence; some races’ intelligence is even comparable to small children. Of course they still run around and can destroy things, but that is no reason to abandon them. Especially since dogs cannot really understand why people do that to them. Why in one moment they land in a forest, on the street and cannot cope. Those that are lucky, are not eternally homeless and find a bowl and safe corner in the shelter, but that’s not home.
That is why the story of Russ – an abandoned pit bull will warm your heart. And you can read about it on the following pages.
