I’m a big believer of adopt don’t shop, but I am also a big believer if you’re going to shop, do so only from a reputable breeder!
I feel that reputable breeders go above and beyond to take good care of their dogs.
Some, if not most,will give you at least three references.
I’m also a big believer of adopting because I want to rescue every single dog in the world. There is so many dogs out there that need a loving home, family, and some tender and loving care.
Anonymous asked: What made you choose Benji?
That’s a good question.
I had just lost my dog three months ago and had told myself I didn’t want a dog for maybe a year. I couldn’t wait so I started the search to adopt a dog, right away actually (I guess I just felt really empty without a dog).
I came across this local rescue near my house and I told the lady I was in search for a dog and needed a hypoallergenic dog, since I live with my mom.
The lady came by my house to do a house visit and brought along a gorgeous cocker spaniel who was a real sweat heart, but we didn’t connect very well.
A month passed and the lady from the rescue called us, about a miniature schnauzer, named Lucky, that was found on the streets and was currently at the vet, somewhere in Miami, finishing up treatment for mange.
I said I would go visit the dog and take it home to see if we get along.
In the end we never gave Lucky back, and renamed him Benji, new life meant new name.
I personally think Benji saved me from going into a stage of depression. (I know it sounds cheesy, but I was never a person to stay depressed for very long until I lost my last dog)
I never thought we were going to keep Benji when we took him home. I always thought we were just taking him home for the weekend, but Benji ended up stealing my heart.
So to answer your question.
I chose Benji because stole my heart from the very begging.
(sorry for the long story)
Well there was a request of my adoption story. This is pretty much it.
Benji has been my guardian angel from the very beginning.
jazzmaniandevil here is the adoption story!
I farted and started running in circles like crazy.
Mommy started laughing.
She can be so mean sometimes
