When thinking about adopting a dog, the dog’s historical and temperament background are essential. Although a dog’s temper are normally inherited or hereditary, a dog coming from the shelter who must have been rehomed on several occasion might have collected a few attitude, tempers, habits as well as behavioral episodes from past owners that needed to be taken into consideration when doing your background check if you plan to adopt a dog and before collecting and taking the canine home. Most shelter dogs have experienced living with a past owner who must have been treated them unjustly or abused. And therefore, due care training and guidance might be needed further on them. This is the very reason why they need a caring home, to enable them to feel the love and care they were neglected from their previous homes and recover from their sad and unwanted experience.
It is wise to check with the shelter staff its historical past mainly due to the following reasons:
A dog’s historical past serves as a caution for owners and handlers to act accordingly and guide them on how to treat, train and care for the canine. If a dog are high risk tempers, it might not be suitable to live with you especially with children and little ones who has less knowledge and training on how to handle them.
Once a dog’s background was known, administering the treatment and training could be done accordingly.
A dog’s historical past will pave the way on how a pet parent will guide and how much amount of tender, loving care the dog needs.
Giving a home to a dog who need it most is not only a noble act for these dogs are the ones worthy to be cared and treated for with proper training and guidance. This is what dog parenting is really all about. Going through a dog’s struggles and treating him off with these struggles will not only make him well and happy but you are definitely raising one fine dog since it will be your art of dog parenting, your trait and your personality that will reside in the dog once they recover from an unwanted past. And this good trait will not only radiate on you, your dog but to the members of your household who helped in treating and caring for the dog. An unwanted dog are the most loyal animal and are certainly capable of giving their unconditional love to their doting parents and caregivers. To many pet parents of adopted dogs, parenting them is not only something out of passion but out of noble responsibility not only on the canine but on showing to many how it is to give responsible parenting to a dog neglected, abused and unwanted by some irresponsible dog parents.
