Hope 2015 has treated you well. No matter, 2016 is coming our way!
About Gentle Paws
Gentle Paws is a privately run shelter for abandoned pets, strays and former breeding dogs. As with all privately-run pet shelters, they depend on contributions from public and time and effort of volunteers to keep the shelter going.
Ginger and Bear is very excited to distribute the 2016 calendar by Gentle Paws. All proceeds from the sale of calendars go to food, lodging and medical treatments of the dogs in need.
About the calendar......
This calendar is about 12 "difficult" dogs. "Difficult" dogs that found it hard to find permanent homes for the reasons being their colour, health and behaviour issues. While others label them "difficult" and give up on them, Gentle Paws did not. These dogs were rehabiliated, trained until they are ready to be rehomed. Dogs do not bear grudges or hold on to their past. With patience, kindness, love and some financial assistance from kind souls, these dogs make tremendous steps towards being "qualified" to be rehomed.
Ginger and Bear love underdogs, and these are 12 underdogs whom most think should be given up, destined to live in kennels all their lives. But they are now ready, waiting only for their label to be dropped and the right family to come forth.
Read about January calendar boy, Caspian. Grumpy, territorial and fearful at the same time. He has however an endearing side; he loves dog runs, would sit smartly for treats and loves the volunteers who dote on him.
June calendar girl, Daphne is certainly a vocal lady, but she is gentle, loves walks, and have her coat brushed. But why not a home? She has a black coat. Look beyond her black coat which happens to be really healthy and beautiful, and you'll see a loyal friend for life.
Hachiko, February girl has been left behind at the shelter by her ex owners who never come back for her. She snaps at strangers and is slow to warm up to people. But volunteers who try, know she is a sunny, fun-loving and goofy gal.. Is there a lucky family to gain her trust?
Reading about these 12 "difficult" dogs remind me of how people are. Don't we see some of ourselves in these dogs? No human is perfect, much less should we expect from these dogs.
Do not take pity on them because they certainly do not feel sorry for themselves. Learn from them and give them a hand for they will be grateful.
