As I’ve possibly mentioned a few times, Freya Woof comes home tomorrow. YAY!
I think she’s adorable, gentle and friendly. The Kennel Clubs and pedigree Saluki breeders say she’s “unacceptable”. She can’t be a real Saluki as her colour is Brindle. Ohh whoa is me, my woofers is a non-permitted colour, banned by kennel clubs across the globe. *sarcastic face*
Dog Worlds post on this. The UK Kennel club. Northern Saluki Club, see third paragraph. The examiner have a good story on the Saluki controversy. On other dog sites I’ve read things about Saluki’s being culled murdered as puppies. 🙁
Well do you know what, I’ve not a clue if she’s pedigree and wouldn’t be joining any “show dog” clubs anyway. What I do care about is this….
She was discarded for her colour. Thrown out, abandoned, disowned. What makes this worse is I have found out about a male puppy in the same colouring, the banned brindle, was found stray and taken in by a charity in the same area in summer. Dogs trust estimate Freya is one year old. It’s highly probable that’s a sibling of hers!
Freya is badly underweight now, dangerously so when dogs trust took her in. She could have died, for being born the wrong colour! What is wrong with people? She has a soul, feelings, a personality and is alive. She is not junk. She is not an object.
Luckily she was found in time, and even better I’m not bothered about her colour. HOW can “breeders” kill or abandon a dog like this? Put it up for adoption instead, free ads, a postcard in a shop window. Anything else. How pathetic a human her ex owner must be. I’m livid about it. That you’d put a pair of puppies out alone to die. My Freya has mental issues because of this, I hope I never meet you ex-owner (for your own safety), the disgust and anger I feel towards you cannot be expressed in words alone.
Freya now has a family that love her. And we resent doggy racism so much. It’s as bad as abandoning a child for being Ginger. (Nothing against ginger whatsoever, it’s just my example as ginger is generally uncommon in people, as is Brindle in Saluki)
I DESPISE ANIMAL CRUELTY, but this takes the bone-shaped biscuit.
