All Dressed Up Nowhere To Go
This pup was all tuckered out from his photo shoot, so he had to sit and contemplate for a while.
Dogs perform many roles for people, such as hunting, herding,pulling loads,protection,,assisting police or military, companionship, and, more recently aiding handiaped individuals. The impact on society has given them the knickname " Man's Best Friend" in the Western world. In 2001, there were estimated to be 400 million dogs in the world.
A growing body of research indicates the companionship of a dog can enhance human physical health and psychological well being. Dog and cat owners have been shown to have better mental and physical health than non-owners, When in the presence of a pet dog, people show reductions in cardiovascular, behavioral, and psychological indicators of anxiety.
Every year between 6 and 8 million dogs and cats enter U.S. animal shelters. The Humane Society of the U.S. estimates that approxiamately 3 to 4 million of these dogs and cats are euthanized yearly in the U.S.. However the percentage of dogs in U.S. animal shelters that are eventually adopted has increased since the mid 1990's from around 25% to a 2012 average of 40%, with many shelters reporting 60-75%.
Please visit your local shelter if you are considering a new pet.....many have purebreds as well as mixed breeds.
