Happy National Mutt Day! Since it is Friday, I hope you won’t mind if I indulge in a Flash Back Friday post as well. I first featured Daly more than a year ago, but she’s never far from my mind. Allison Shamrell captured this beautiful image. As a puppy Daly was in a high kill shelter and was scheduled for euthanasia before being pulled by Scruffy Dog Rescue.
I always want to believe that it is only the sick or very aggressive dogs that get put down in animal shelters, but the truth is, all ages and breeds are at risk of euthanasia in a kill shelter. Please make sure your pets aren’t contributing to the overpopulation problem! If you are looking to add a dog to your family, please check the shelters first or contact an ethical breeder!
