With their loving and loyal personalities, it’s difficult to fathom why some people choose to leave their dogs in shelters. Good thing the number of dogs entering animal shelters annually has been on a steady decline over the years.
Adopting pets from shelters instead of buying from pet shops will help to decrease the number even more. Still, some people are skeptical about shelter dogs seeing as they aren’t as pretty or well-groomed as the ones we see in pet shops. These pictures tell a different story.
Don’t let their unkempt appearances fool you. These dogs are absolute cuties underneath!
