it is very disheartening to see people sending their dogs away simply because they look ugly and that is why most of the dogs roaming about often look ugly and unkept, it is ideal to let ugly dogs be just as humans who feel the same and that is the best way of making such dogs feel safe

I will not hate my dog just because s/he isn't cute.btw,where did that idea come from?why would someone throw a dog out because s/he is ugly?dogs are beautiful,loyal creatures who will turn against their own kind to be with humans.they love their masters with all their heart.their looks aren't any basis to keep them.

I have to agree with you all pets need love just like all people need love.

It is very gross to hear people throw away their dog because they look ugly... I wouldn't believe people will do that but this kind of people are really out there... just have them think about what if their parents told them "You are ugly and disgusting!" and left them on the street? same thing... Those people are unbearableand should get punishment by doing that...

I think all animals are pretty in there own way. It doesn't matter what they look like they are all sweet and loving. Pet come in all shapes and sizes just like people and we all look different. Just love your pet for who they are not what they are.

All pets are cute and could never be ugly for me. I don't think its right to send their dogs away because they look ugly, its not really fair and very humane thing to do. Dogs or animals have feelings also that's why we need to accept them for what they are.

I am not sure I am following you? Why do you get the dog in the first place? I think it's best to give away is to dog shelter, dog kennel care, and other places that accept dogs. I'd be much comfortable to let dog stay with me and I care of it, anyway.

lol, thats funny if people do that. they expect a dog to be pretty? i see dogs as friends and companions. i wouldn't get rid of a dog because of the way it looks.

well probably I will give it to somebody who is more kind to animals. heheh. Not much of a pet lover anyways. Just had our pet because its so cute but if it is not, then I don`t think I`ll be needing any..

I have never heard of people dumping their dog because it was ugly besides if it was dumped how would you know why? unless of course they tied a note to its neck cant see it some how "im dumping this dog because its ugly" generally dogs get dumped for all sorts of reasons, amnd id say most dogs that are roaming look ugly and unkept because they have been roaming the streets with no care so of course will look unkept and be in real need of some care and attention i doubt many of them looked like it when they were dumped!
