A LITTLE ABOUT DOGS
Dogs are real-life champions and are the best companions in every adorable way possible. Our canine friends love us unconditionally and never hold a grudge. Not only that! According to the American Heart Association, they can even protect us from heart disease.
The world is full of dogs of all shapes, colors, and sizes. The total number of breeds in the entire world changes once in a while, but there are so many! The number depends on the recognized breeds of several organizations. The American Kennel Club, for instance, currently recognizes 195 dog breeds, with 79 more awaiting complete recognition.
Dogs are symbols of vigilance, loyalty, and friendship. They act as our guardians and protectors. Whether you have a tiny Chihuahua or a massive Rottweiler, your canine friend surely has a way to make you feel safe, protected, and loved. At the end of the day, breed doesn’t matter! All dogs are sweethearts!
Caring for dogs is a long-term commitment. They don’t just require food. There are regular walks, veterinary checkups, grooming, and unwavering love and attention. If you can’t dedicate the next 10 to 20 years of your life to pet parenthood, then it’s best not to get a dog for now. You can still be a pet parent or guardian, though. Reach out to your local shelter and foster a dog. Take care of her while she’s waiting for a forever home!
Just like humans, dogs feel a range of emotions. This means that many stuck in shelters feel depressed, confused, and traumatized, as if they were sentenced to jail without committing a crime. Some are even scared of other dogs! Let’s help them in every way we can. Fostering and volunteering do wonders!
To all the passionate dog lovers out there, these free dog coloring pages are for you. Taking on new creative hobbies is always a huge step, so get inspiration from the furry friend you love and cherish the most.
