Rescue Is The Best Breed Ever

Rescue Is The Best Breed Ever…Here is what every rescue dog wants you to know.

They appreciate the finer things in life

Let me tell you, Pancho does not take a dog bed for granted. Never mind my high thread count sheets. I can tell by the way he takes over my bed and rests his head on my pillow, or any soft surface for that matter — a couch, chair, pile of clothes. God forbid he sleeps on the floor!

They’re healthier

Because rescues tend to be mutts, they come from a more diversified gene pool, so they’re less prone to certain breed-specific health problems (like labs are prone to hip dysplasia.) That means less vet visits and bills!

They have street smarts

I never worry about Pancho walking down the sidewalks of New York City, after I know what he encountered on the streets of Colombia. He even looks both ways before crossing the street! And I have a feeling he could find food if he really needed to (he remembers where he hides his bones!).

They’re not picky

Speaking of eating, rescue dogs generally aren’t finicky when it comes to food. Pancho will literally eat out of the trash. But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to feed him the best—it’s a big reason why I started a company that delivers healthy meals for dogs. He’s not complaining!

They’re wise souls

Pancho has seen a thing or two in this big bad world we live in. And I can see it in his eyes—there’s a certain sensitivity and soulfulness when he stares back at me. I swear, he knows how I’m feeling and when I need a snuggle.

They know their boundaries

I honestly don’t know if it’s true for all rescue dogs, but it definitely is of Pancho: he’s very respectful of other dogs’ things. If there’s another bowl of food on the floor that doesn’t belong to him, he won’t touch it!

They’re easy to house train

Assuming you don’t rescue a puppy, this is 100 percent true. Yes, puppies are adorable (and see my point about being attached below . . . you don’t need a puppy to create a strong bond!), but it took me all of a week to house train Pancho, who was probably close to a year when I brought him home. Almost no accidents!

They’re more attached

Would you leave the side of someone who rescued you? Exactly. Pancho follows me around pretty much everywhere I go. I never have to worry about him running away, that’s for sure.

They will love you forever

Now this is 1000 percent true. There is no limit to the love a rescue dog will give you. They are infinitely grateful for the human who has taken them in, and they will express that gratitude in the form of endless licks and tail wagging.
