Dogs are one of the most lovable creatures globally, and it is easy to see why. Whether you have a dog or not, you will fall in love with every dog you come across, and if they are beautiful, they will lose even more in love with you. On the other hand, Stray dogs are a misunderstood breed of dog that has been abandoned on the streets all over the globe due to a variety of factors.
These dogs are in danger of acquiring illnesses, being hungry, and displaying solidarity if their owners do not accompany them. A typical setting in which children are raised is one in which “survival of the fittest” is a rule of thumb. Most dogs do not grow beyond the puppy stage when they are raised in these circumstances. However, there are individuals with big hearts who are dedicated to the welfare of these creatures and are willing to assist them. These individuals are referred to as dog rescuers, and they either work for or manage animal shelters. A shelter is a place that takes and cares for stray animals while also providing them with protection.
More individuals are trying to acquire designer dogs, which need more care and are also more expensive, which does not diminish the likelihood of rescue dogs being adopted and finding a permanent home.
Given their widespread popularity on the internet, we have collected a selection of some of these images for your convenience. Continue reading to view these terrible photographs.

What You Should Do to Protect Your Dog from Being Kidnapped by Someone Else
All your pets should be microchipped to ensure their safety.
A collar and ID tag may be removed quickly and easily, but a microchip cannot be released under any circumstances. If you are concerned, you may have your dogs’ spay/neuter surgery performed while he’s having his microchip placed. Microchips are roughly the size of a grain of rice and can be inserted during any veterinary visit. Every dog that arrives at a shelter, animal clinic, or government institution under dubious circumstances has its chip scanned by a technician. It is, by far, the most effective way of identifying where a misplaced pet belonged in the first place.
Never, ever let your dog off the leash in your immediate vicinity.
The fact is that allowing your dog to run free on the street, even if you have great neighbours who adore your pet, is a prescription for catastrophe. You may expect your dog to be a sitting duck for a dognapper on the lookout for prey, in addition to the risks posed by cars, snakes, and other dogs.
Do not let your dog alone in the backyard.
Dogs left alone in fenced-in yards are just as hazardous as those left outside. Even if you’re at home, it’s unlikely that you’re always keeping an eye on your dog via the window. In a matter of seconds, someone might reach over the fence and take your beloved puppy away from you.
It is not safe to leave your dog alone in a car.
We’ve all heard the warnings against leaving dogs in cars alone, but it’s important to remember that it’s not only the weather that has to be considered. No matter how pleasant the weather is outside, leaving your dog in the car while you do errands puts him at risk. A dognapper’s ideal opportunity to abduct your dearest friend is when the vehicle is left unattended. We like travelling with our dogs, but keeping them inside your home while you are out shopping is the safest bet for their well-being.
You should not tie your dog outside of a store.
You are putting yourself at the same or worse risk as if you were to leave your fuzzbutt in the car! The thief has to untie the dog’s leash and go down the street as if he is the dog’s valid owner. It would be impossible for anyone on the road to conclude that the dognapper was not, in fact, the dog’s rightful owner.
It is not a good idea to provide personal details to strangers.
If a pleasant stranger seems to be too interested in the details of your dog’s genealogy, proceed with caution. It’s OK if people want to compliment you on your mutt’s unique mix; but, if they start asking how much you spent on your dog, where you live, or whether or not you bought it from a breeder, you should keep your mouth quiet.
Advertisements in newspapers may sometimes be dubious in their authenticity.
Even while classified ads in print have the impression of authenticity since the individual who posts the ad is required to provide personal information, the legitimacy of these adverts is questionable. Dog thieves may use fictitious information and pre-paid mobile phone numbers to place an advertisement on Craigslist. The goal is to sell the puppy quickly and then publish a new ad with entirely different information to maintain its cover.
It is never appropriate to demand money from re-homers.
If someone claims to be just looking for a good home for a dog, they no longer have time to care for but then asks for a “rehoming fee,” it should raise red flags in your mind. It is unnecessary for someone interested in finding a loving new home for an animal to be concerned about recouping any costs connected with the pet. If you believe your dog has been abducted, you should contact the authorities as soon as possible.
If you want to purchase a purebred dog, conduct your research on the breeder and insist on seeing the mother, father, and other littermates before making your purchase.
Many dishonest individuals have damaged the image of legitimate breeders. Fortunately, professional breeders who care about animals and breed them humanely may be found; you have to know where to search. A “breeder” who invites you to a neutral location but refuses to show you the parents and littermates of the dog they are selling should be avoided at all costs. Even if the dog has not been stolen, there is something suspicious going on. Breeders that are pleased with their animals are delighted to show them off.
