Many of us are hiding inside our homes, protecting ourselves from Covid-19. With this comes extreme boredom and sometimes loneliness. To stay safe during the pandemic, we are told to stay away from our loved ones and friends as best we can. However, our human tendencies to be social can be hurt by this new social distancing practice. Many of you may have asked yourself what can I do to fix my boredom and loneliness while still following the safety measures for Covid-19. Here is one option: you can adopt a pet!
Pets are a great companion to have to keep you company. There are so many different options out there for a pet, but let's focus on dogs for this article's sake. Picking out a dog breed can be difficult, especially when each type of dog tends to have a diverse personality. For instance, chihuahuas are known to be fierce, angry, and shaky (and loving, but that is not their stereotype). Pitbulls have a reputation of being one of the most dangerous dog breeds, but in fact, are one of the friendliest if trained correctly. Pitbulls have a terrible history of being trained in the harshest of ways, which can, at times, cause them to act out. It is all about love and care when training a dog.
This leads me to another essential thing to note when adopting dogs. I personally always choose to adopt from shelters because I do not support the euthanization of any animal. Due to the lack of animal adoptions from shelters, millions of dogs and cats are euthanized each year.
However, if you are worried that the shelter dogs might be sick or have not been trained well by shelter staff, you can always go to a breeder (even though most of the time, those dogs are already ill). When looking for an appropriate breeder, it is essential to look up reviews on the site. Once you contact the breeder, you need to ask for the primary breeders' first and last names.
If you type the breeder's first name and last name into a reliable site like GladiKnow.com, you will gain all types of information on that person. Something to look for on the GladiKnow.com website is the breeder's home address, criminal records, and phone numbers. First, check to see if the phone number they gave you matches up with their name; second, make sure that their address is somewhat near the shop you are going to. If the breeder's home address is in a foreign country, you will most likely be scammed. Thirdly, check out their criminal records if there are any. If there are any animal cruelty records, then that should tell you to walk away and report.
Luckily for you, GladiKnow.com is a website available at any time to help you with any personal search needs.
