We shall call him Bandit, because he steals hearts.
About two years ago my family adopted a puppy. In front of the Kenmore Grocery Outlet, in the midst of alot of barking dogs, he sat quietly in his kennel waiting for us to pick him out. Ginger’s Pet Rescue hosted a pet adoption event, and we took him home with us that day. We gave Bandit love, and he changed our lives. In the last two years we’ve learned through trial and error. Us as his owners need to be well balanced and calm human beings in order to work through our own problems, and not project that on our dog.
I’ve changed my whole routine with Bandit in mind, but I have benefited most from the experience. I wake up at 5AM every morning now, and as I’m walking my pup I can’t help but realize how much it helps me grow as a person. We are blessed to call Bandit our own. Ginger’s Pet Rescue made it all possible, and it feels so good to know they exist to help these wonderful pets find welcoming homes. Thank you to all the wonderful people involved in Ginger's!
You may think you are too busy or too fresh in life changes to possibly have time for a dog. And while I applaud your discipline, consider this. A pet can save you from you. Dog’s are sensitive and aware beings. They thrive in a pack and structure. And when the planets finally align and you find your special companion, no rational thought or excuses will keep you apart. So take the step, commit to a canine companion and bring out the best you.
Just want to look into those loving eyes and escape without a pet? That’s ok, too. Fostering, volunteering and contributions keep valuable community organizations like Ginger’s Pet Rescue moving us all in a better direction. The fine folks at Ginger’s have saved over 10,000 dogs from death row! Their commitment helps dogs find new forever homes and benefits all involved. Now go forth and find your cuddle buddy!
