Adopt a dog!

Adopt a dog!

Hi Ruffers! We want to tell you that during these days we started to investigate about the street dogs, and we found that due to a large number of dogs that are in the streets, most of them come to be sacrificed, that is terrifying! don’t you believe it?, and it is worse to know that most of them were abandoned. Also, we found that in 2017 70% of dogs do not have an owner, which means that there are around 750 million stray dogs worldwide.

Surely after reading these data, you will also ask yourself, how can I contribute to this problem? That’s the moment where we invite you to adopt a dog, we assure you will not regret it! Obviously, we could give you thousands of reasons, but today we're going to share only 5 reasons of why it's better to adopt and not to buy a dog:

1. You will witness a change

At the moment of adopting, you automatically change the life of an animal, since you improve their living conditions and make them part of your family. Therefore, they have an incredible change in their behavior and even in their diet.

2. It is rewarding

Many of these dogs suffer some type of abuse or rejection. So it's gratifying to know that you're supporting a good cause. Also, I assure you that you will have a faithful friend who will always be by your side.

3. They are friendly dogs

The dogs that are adopted are extremely affectionate since they value all the love that you give them. And as a reward, you receive expressions of gratitude, affection, and company.

4. It is the most original dog that you will find

Generally, the street dogs aren’t pure race, which means that there will not be two dogs like yours, so you will have a unique and unrepeatable dog. There's no way you're going to find one that authentic!
Also, I assure you that you will find a dog that matches your personality, and that makes you feel that you were destined to be together.

5. You choose the age of your dog

Many times people prefer a baby dog because they are easier to educate, however, they do not take into account that an adult dog, generally, is already educated, it's quieter, and it is not so delicate. So it's a great option!

Before ending this post we want to tell you that in Ruffit MX, we are collaborating with AMAR GDL, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to raising awareness about the adoption of dogs through awareness talks and adoption events. We have to admit that we love supporting this type of causes that seek to generate a change and raise awareness in society.

So ... What are you waiting for? It's time for you to act and change the life of a dog that suffers from abandonment. Remember that if you can not adopt, you can volunteer in some organization.
