Canines at Christmas

Canines at Christmas

As the festive season is almost upon us, dog charities across the globe send out the message not to buy a gift of a dog or puppy for Christmas.

It may seem like a cute idea but once the holidays are over and everyone goes back to work and back to reality those amusing puppy habits of chewing and barking may not seem quite so enjoyable.

If you are serious about getting a new pet, leave it until well into the new year and consider adopting a pet from a rescue centre.

Many people are under the (wrong) impression that dogs in rescue centres are hard to train or badly behaved.

Many dogs have been abandoned through no fault of their own. People leave their dogs behind when they move home, un-neutered animals give birth to unwanted litters of puppies which are thrown out onto the streets, many ending up in rescue centres.

Visit your local rescue centre, meet the dogs and speak to the volunteers who will be happy to match a dog to your domestic situation.

Spend some time volunteering at the centre, walk some of the dogs and get to know the animals, I can guarantee at least one will find its way into your heart.

Take a look at the dogs available for adoption from APSA, all are featured on the website and many updates are posted on the Facebook page.

Dog blog will be back in the new year. In the meantime all the volunteers and animals at APSA wish you a very happy Christmas.

here, is a heart warming festive dog video for you to enjoy.
