yea, it true. ppl nowadays will only go like;
Re: [pewong] Mongrels in need of love
for purebreed/a breed they "know"/look nice 1
-wah, ur dog so cute, gimme gimme, got puppy gimme 1.
->and then maybe "some" will take good care yet most just take and say so hard to take care. go like " that dog so dumb, so bad, teach also won't listen, or wah need to spend so much money for medic/groom/food and on
-> then hardly give any attention to them..... and leave them is a mess....
-i ned a dog to watch house/ lately the area not so safe, got burlgar, u got dog? gimme
-> then juz leave the dog roam around, dont take care 1, or juz feed them wit some leftovers and go whinning "eh, they eat so much...". i ever seen "a lot" lock the dog "outside" the house.... meaning the dog sleep outside the gate, tie/untie even when its raining wit no shelther or house for it.... juz one row of house in the housing estate got at least 5 house do that.... and the everytime the doggies c the master, they r so excited and want to get in... but.... no they'r not let in at all, those ppl probbly though their house so "beautiful" dont wanna let them in. and i expect most of the r not vacinne or given basic medical treatment too.
-> and when the dog is sick they juz let it be.... or when they dont want it, they bring it to some far places lik industrial area, near outside town, far away from their place and leave it there... the worst is, they dont pick a better place where they can survive at, they have to pick those places with many cars & no food....
Therefore, nowadays when ppl are asking dogs from us or my parents(mostly from them), i'll say "Donno, c 1st"
or for those that i know their style, its staraight forward say "No, i dont wanna give them" bcoz ill feel guilty,if something bad happen to them.
Most ppl, especially teen and young ppl loves to "buy/get" pet bcoz, they see other ppl have and other ppl ones are so cute and pretty, or see picture/petshop ones so cute and wanna have too... without considering what it takes to keep the dog itself in its best condition....
and they have no idea at all, raising a purebreed is much much more harder than having a normal/mongrel, especially a long coat one. and also how much $$$ it might take.
therefore, to all of you ppl who are planning to get a pet, please think twice before you do. and is you do get 1, please consider how much time/energy/patient/$$$ are you willing to put into. & the cuter a pet is, the more you ned to give and work on.
Please dont let them end up in a terrible condition causing sickness and death to it, and also dont let it end up in the street. Have a pet because you love it, not because you wanna be praise and look good wit it....
Btw, mongrel is also cute, know trick(if you teach it) and ned love. its not juz for watching your house. if you just want a watch dog, then go get a real watch dog(security dog), you dont even ned to take care of it, just pay it.
