This sweet little guy was brought in as a neighborhood dog to be neutered at an animal clinic in Mexico by a nice woman who happened to be bringing in her own dog. He did well, recovered, and went back to the area with the woman. Then, the day after he left, who shows up all by himself at the door of the clinic? None other than this handsome fellow!
Many countries in the world have a problem with stray dogs. There are just too many of them living on the streets, hungry and in desperate need of love and shelter. It really is a pity, because the same animals living on the street are just like your pets, and the only thing that made them different is the fact that someone no longer wanted them and threw them out, or they were born on the street.
There is a way to save them all, but it doesn’t come at a small price. Nipping the problem in the bud would mean spaying or neutering your dogs and those stray dogs in order to diminish the general dog population living in an area. Some might argue that it defies the laws of nature, but in reality it’s better than seeing them starving on the streets, an easy prey to other vicious animals and even car accidents. Spaying and neutering your dogs might even make them less aggressive, diminishing the chances of them attacking a kid playing in a park. And as always, the most effective way of helping stray dogs is to take them as a pet, rather than to buy one.
