Oh God, I shouldn’t have read this at work. Now I’m that crazy chick who cries at her desk. 

So sad and so true. My lifelong dream has been to open a no kill shelter. You know, with the millions of dollars I have lying around. Maybe someday…

I agree! I have one purebred that was abandoned and one sick puppy mill dog that has done more for me than I could ever have done for her.

I couldnt get through the whole article. We have 3 pets and all were strays. We have a pitbull who I know would have been put down if we didnt find him. We have talked about it and have agreed to only ever adopt from a shelter or take in strays and we will most likely have pitbulls our entire lives. I really dont understand why people get dogs from breeders – even the good ones. There are just so many dogs in need of homes that are in shelters!

Wow, that is sad sad. That’s why I always adopt and never buy. But now I will look for big black dogs next time I go adopt one.

@SoupyCat- In my area since we have no kill shelters there are so many black dogs. And I never thought anything of it until I read an article on time about how hard it is for black dogs to get adopted. They are just as loveable as any other color 🙂

We adopted our cocker spaniel Lincoln from the humane society 2 years ago and he is the best dog!
