Why I Choose to Adopt a Dog ?

Because the Korean government has not given enough attention to boycotting dog meat, these heinous dog meat trades are still common in South Korea. Animal-loving volunteers have no choice but to do their best to buy and save more dogs from Korean dining tables. But there are so many dogs saved, animal lovers have no way to take care of all of them, so what we can do is to adopt dogs according to our own abilities, to give dogs a new home, and to reduce the pressure on those volunteers who saved dogs back.

As animal lovers, we know how great it is to adopt a dog. We know that this will not only save a dog, but also free up a chance for adoption for other dogs. On the other hand, although many people do not recognize this, in fact, adopted dogs will guard the adopters and the family in different ways to repay their adoption.

Some dogs return the favor by rescuing family members.

When smelled the gas leak at home, the dog instinctively knew to alert her family of the potential dangers in the house. The clever puppy refused to let them go to bed, but took her dad to the stove burner that was not closed. This brilliant dog has saved the family from a disaster.

Some dogs, such as rescue dogs, can provide emotional support in times of hardship.

For Rachel, the arrival of Grace, which is a rescue dog, is in the right time. The sudden loss of her husband, Lawrence, caused a heavy blow to her. She said, “I felt so lost. My friends were wonderful and supportive but eventually, everyone moves on with their lives. I don’t have children. And I’m not a workaholic. So I was left with this intense loneliness and void. I couldn’t eat. I couldn’t sleep.”

“One day I started researching dogs that are good for grief and depression. And ‘poodle’ kept popping up. But when I went to the rescue fair, all the poodles were gone. There was this one old dog in the back that nobody was looking at. She was skin and bones. She was trembling and scared and mucus was running out of her eyes. She seemed so fragile. She reminded me of myself.”

The feeling of having one thing that makes you feel safe, comfortable and loved is undoubtedly one of the hardest things in life. This is not just happening to humans. It’s the same feeling when dogs are left on the street or abandoned by their families. That’s why Rachel and her rescue dog Grace are the perfect match– they need each other.

Studies have shown that playing or interacting with animals can increases the level of stress-reducing hormone oxytocin and reduce the stress-inducing hormone cortisol. This relationship between humans and animals also helps to overcome anxiety, depression and other mental illness. This is especially true for rescue dogs because they know what is associated with feelings of vulnerability, and it also provides an outlet. Taking on the responsibility for caring for another one in need can bring purpose and meaning during the darkest hours of your life.

Many people who live with dogs will tell you that their lives have changed for the better since they adopted dogs. After all, our dogs know us better than anyone else and can make us happy when we need them the most. Studies have even shown that raising a puppy can bring real health benefits, such as reducing the risk of heart disease and lower stress levels.

I used to be an autistic patient in my childhood. It was because of Ricky’s company, my furry friend who came to my home when I was ten, that I open my heart to the outside world, and began to gradually integrate into the crowd and love life. Ricky’s presence has greatly improved my social skills. I began to share my food and toys with my parents and other kids. I can also provide comfort when others are sad, which is a big improvement for me. Ricky help me develop into normal child, boosting my confidence and compassion.

Pets can act as a social lubricant, returning tension to normal, and serving as a topic of chat. Getting along with dogs can also increase the positive energy of the mind. Their happiness will infect you, stimulating and increasing your chances of interacting with others. They always bring you surprises. Even a small thing can make you have fun. You will find that their world are really simple, playing with you is their greatest happiness, then you will find that life has no big deal.

If you feel that life is boring, if you need a loyal partner, if you want to find a good listener, if. . . then you might consider raising a dog. Adoption is a better option than buying a dog. Adopted dogs will be extraordinarily cherished and obedient after returning to family. And the more cats and dogs are adopted, the more space and resources pet rescue agencies will free up to help more stray cats and dogs.If you adopt a cat or a dog, it will also give hope to other stray cats and dogs that they have the opportunity to enter a complete and happy family either. You will not only get a good partner, at the same time, you give the dog a new home which make a contribution to pets rescue. Why not serve multiple purposes in one fell swoop?
