Adopt Indian/Desi/Stray Dogs
Are you a proud Indian???
Then why is it that you do not seem to give the same respect to everything thats Indian?
For beginners lets take up the issue of the Indian/Desi/Stray dogs.
Have you ever thought - why is it that they are called Strays.. Simply because they have been abandoned by us . We do not wish to take responsibility of taking care of whats ours and land up leaving them on the streets. The resultant being -they left to fend for themselves.
How many times have you crossed a diseased/wounded/hurt/beaten/bitten dog on the street and have exclaimed -"yuck!! how filthy". what if after that remark you'd stopped and called a genuine animal lover who could help that animal become a healthy one again?
I have an Indian/Desi breed, I picked off the street and he is the most handsome/intelligent/ loving pet I have seen. Even people with pedigree as pets exclaim on seeing him - " he is sooooo cute, what an intelligent dog". This dog might have been as dirty, diseased and Yucky as any other on the street if not taken in by us. Thats what makes all the difference. Giving them a home and a normal loving environment is all that is needed. Even a Pedigree if left on a road will look as undesirable as the so-called strays. Come to think of it once they look like the stray Indian they would also be stray pedigrees.
Just give it a thought.
