If that doesn't break your heart, nothing will...

Man, if I had the time/money right now...

The shelter I worked at would have weeks in the spring where we'd have maybe up to 40 puppies up for adoption. It's crazy how many there are down there in the rural shelter. Up here in the suburbs the shelter is much much less full.

So many little ones needing homes.
They all look pretty happy.

They are so beautiful, its just heartbreaking that they have to start out in such a place.

Holy moley. That's a ton of puppies. Too bad you guys can't send them up here. Our shelters are pretty empty this year. 3 at the local one and maybe five at the private one.

We don't see a lot of pups here and they get snatched up super quick. I have no idea what those first pups are but they are black and fluffy and I want one. I think I would also end up leaving with all the blue pups in what looks like an ACD mix litter

Go to any rural area, the dogs are allowed to run loose, they aren't fixed, and you have an abundance of puppies.

Until we can figure out a way to convince people in rural areas that they need to change the way they own dogs, this problem will continue. I think strict enforcement of dog "running at large" or "leash" laws (whichever law exists), or creating a leash or running at large law if there is none in that area and strictly enforcing it will be a good start.

I agree, we live in a rural area and the people to our left have at least five labXs that roam free, to the right there are three shepherds who do the same, and across the road two more dogs. All unaltered of course. We talked to them on several occasions about this, even had the local animal control talk to them. It took us, upon the local animal control suggestion, calling them up next time a pair of them where out running so she could pick them up and charge them to get them back for them to start keeping better track of their dogs I think stricter laws and heftier fines would go a long way.
