Action: Don't give dogs as Christmas gifts!

If you are wondering what is the right dog for you, this is the place to be. In this introductory forum we talk about topics such as breed vs. mix, size, age, grooming, breeders, shelters, rescues as well as requirements for exercise, space and care. No question is too silly here. This particular forum is for getting and giving helpful, nice advice. It is definitely not a forum for criticizing someone else's opinion, knowledge or advice. This forum is all about tail wagging and learning.

Hello Dogsters!

Please join the action to persuade people not to give dogs as presents underneath the Christmas tree! They very often are thrown away by bored children and their overworked parents.

Don't give dogs as Christmas gifts!

Please share this poster to your friends and tell them to think about it. Thanks!

I would agree to that. People are just so busy when Christmas is around the corner that not enough time would be given to the dog, especially if it's a new dog. It should be noted that dogs should be given after the holidays when there is less stress and more time could be devoted to the new dog.
