I am a fluffy puppy.▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
I can't fend for myself.▫️▫️▫️▫️ ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
I need my pawrents to keep me safe. To feed me good nutritional meals and snacks. To walk me, potty train me, to care for me when I'm happy and sad. To get me medical care for illness and injury and wellness visits as I grow.
I need love, play, education, exercise, mental stimulation and attention to thrive into adulthood and beyond.
We were shocked, then angry, and now so sad to learn of a social media #influencer
supported puppy giveaway. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
Would you hold a baby giveaway?
How is a puppy giveaway any different? We are fur babies, have pawrents, want safety, caring and love. We too know fear; need time to learn; to live life protected, guided and carefree. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
As a newborn, I relied on the breeder who brought me into this world to be my advocate and my protector. To protect me and keep me safe. To find me the home that matches me best, who have been vetted ahead of time, not after the fact.
▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️ To find me pawrents who know and understand the time and responsibility of having a fur baby. Pawrents who know it sometimes takes loving sacrifices to ensure I have everything I need and deserve. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
I'm so blessed my breeder never thought of me as a prize, or a giveaway item on a social media page. I am so blessed I wasn't treated like a shiny plaything, a piece of property somebody can win. That somebody could be so proud and happy of such a first in giveaways on IG.
I feel so badly and hurt so much for my furfriends at Rockygoldendoodles and Utahgoldendoodles. We are complex babies too, with fears and emotions and ability to comprehend the world around us. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
Join me in speaking out against for those who can't advocate for themselves. Join me in refusing to buy from them and the brands, people, and affiliates who support them. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
I hope you will join me and others by using the hashtag #realfurparents
