Update on Moogly from Jan of the IFAW:

I finally went over to visit Moogly and he’s in heaven. The people LOVE him and he just loves the dane in the picture who is his ‘cousin’. They both loved each other immediately and romp in the tennis courts offleash with big smiles on their faces. Moogly lives in the main house on the property with a bulldog and standard poodle, while Hamlet, the second dane (in the pic), lives on the property but in another house. They see each other daily. Moogly loves everyone (except the cat) and all dogs. His people say he just fits and they can’t imagine a more wonderful personality.

He’s put on some weight with some more to go but now that he’s settled and content, he looks almost perfect. That look they have in their eye when they are unsure is all gone. He’s in heaven!

    Thanks to Moogly's new loving owners for the update that warms all our hearts! And for giving Moogly what sounds like his doggy paradise with a beautiful new Dane cousin too! What a happy ending to the story of Moogly's miserable, hungry, unloved, lonely previous life! That last photo of Moogly and Hamlet looking up with adoring eyes says it all!

The reason for this blog is to help get specific dogs adopted from TAS but equally important is to try to normalize the idea of shelter dogs being just as good and just as desirable as any other dogs including those which are regularly merchandised by backyard breeders, puppy millers and those few remaining pet store owners who still feel a need to sell live animals. The single greatest stigma shelter animals still face is the belief that shelter animals are substandard animals. Anyone who has had enough experience with shelter animals knows this is untrue but the general public hasn't had the same experiences you've had. They see a nice dog photo in a glossy magazine and too many of them would never think of associating that dog with a dog from a shelter. After all, no one abandons perfectly good dogs, right? Unfortunately, as we all know, perfectly good dogs are abandoned all the time.

The public still too often associates shelter dogs with images of beat up, sick, dirty, severely traumatized animals and while we definitely sometimes see victims such as these, they are certainly not the majority and, regardless, even the most abused animals can very often be saved and made whole again.

Pound Dogs sometimes discusses the sad histories some of the dogs have suffered. For the most part, though, it tries to present the dogs not as victims but as great potential family members. The goal is to raise the profiles of animals in adoption centers so that a potential pet owner sees them as the best choice, not just as the charity choice.

So, here's the favour I'm asking. Whenever you see a dog picture on these pages you think is decent enough, I'd like you to consider sharing it on Facebook or any other social media sites you're using (I know many of you do this already and thank you for that). And when you share it, please mention that the dog in the photo is a shelter dog like so many other shelter dogs waiting for a home. If we can get even five percent of the pet buying public to see shelter dogs differently, to see how beautiful they are and how wonderful they are, and to consider shelter dogs as their first choice for a new family member, we can end the suffering of homeless pets in this country.
