15 Reasons NOT to Chain Dogs

Chained dogs are often deprived of adequate care and shelter and left to suffer through extreme heat or freezing winter nights when all they want are scratches behind their ears, walks around the block, and the opportunity to curl up at their guardians’ feet at night—indoors.

Here are 15 reasons NOT to chain dogs:

    Poor little babies. No dog deserves that. Why give a dog a home when it’s going to be outside for the whole of its life lonely and cold.

    Sad. My dog loves running around and playing outside….who wouldn’t?! But to live…no way!!!! Being in the heat, cold everyday, all day with a few moments of companionship. That’s not right..heartbreaking.

    When i see people just having there dog or any other animal chain i wish they where in there position so they could feel the way they feel. All animals have equal rights like humans do and most of us don’t see that.

    Dogs and any animals you’re keeping as pets should be treated as family, not chained up like a prisoner.

    Every animal is important. When you have a pet you are taking on a responsibility to that animal and that means taking care of it inside your own home, and not leaving it to die from neglect outside.

    I swear people who chain up their dogs like this are seriously the most heartless,meanies,cold and especially cruel, should not have been or are allowed to have pets if they are on going to humiliate and or ABUSE pets whether dog,cat,hamster or any kind of animal male or female. People should really see what people do to these animals that are being chained up, not fed or even given baths. People who do this really DISGUST me .

    Makes you wonder why people even get a dog if they aren’t going to take the time out of their own schedule to take care of him/she properly by giving it love, attention, and the nurture they need.

    What the fuck, world? Is it that fucking difficult to let your dog sleep with you, or for you to love, and protect it? Your dog would gladly protect you, but you have to pull this shit? This world makes me sick.

    I was very happy to share this one. My aunt adopted a pit bull a few years ago. His previous owner had him chained up on a property that they only visited once in a while to toss some food at him. He was so starved and most likely abused in some way as he’s rather scared of women. Now he has a loving home and even plays and watches over my younger cousins. :)
