Happy Monday everyone, and I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend!
Today I would like to shine a light on a beautiful pup named Sadie.
Some of you may have already heard her story, as she has recently had a video posted to Instagram that went VIRAL.
Sadie is currently up for adoption at the Edmonton Humane Society here in Canada.
And despite her viral video, and the extra attention, she is still in need of a home.
You may be wondering what her video is about, and why it went viral.
Take a moment to view, and hear her story by following the link below :
- Sadie the jumping pup -
As you can see, Sadie likes to jump!
Any time she hears motion outside of her kennel, she jumps up and down at her door for a LONG time! She is a girl, who wants her forever people to come a whisk her away to a new home. Sadie has been adopted and returned to the shelter more than one time.
Sadly, this happens more than you might think with adopted dogs.
This brings me to the next part of my post.
Recently, there have been a lot of conversations on my social media networks, referring to how strict some shelters are when someone tries to adopt a pet.
There is a good reason for this, and so many people can't see through it and just complain about it.
If a shelter has turned you down when trying to adopt, chances are, they have a good reason!
It's not like they want to turn people away. They want to see these pets go to good homes too, but some are just not a good fit!
My point in all this is -
shelters need to be strict.
People need to do their research on whatever breed they plan on getting.
People need to be sure they have the means to adopt a pet.
If everyone and every shelter did these things, there would be far less dogs and cats being returned to to these places.
So if there is ever a time when you try to adopt from a shelter and you are turned down, please take a step back and listen to their reasons for refusing you. Maybe it is not the right time.
Maybe there are a few things you need to do before you try and adopt.
Take the steps needed to prepare yourself for the new addition, THEN adopt.
Ok, now rant is really over ;)
Let's share Sadie's story!
Despite her video going viral, she is still in need of a home.
Sadie has a ton of energy and needs someone who can give her the needed exercise.
She will do best with older children and no cats.
Sadie is a hound mix and is around 14 months old.
