Nowadays many people have a pet in their house.
Some people have a parrot or a rabbit, others prefer a cat or dog. I have a pet cat. My uncle presented it to me on my birthday. We have had our cat for about 6 years and we love it and we spoil it.
I agree that young children should have a pet in order to become sensitive and caring. I think that the dog is the most suitable pet for young children. Dogs teach children to be sensitive, to take care of others, to feel a responsibility and to love. When children are playing and talking with the dog, they learn to communicate. I believe that the result is that children are easier to socialize better with others and they quickly find friends. Presently, the number of homeless dogs is increasing in Lithuania. Often people do not want to foster their pets or they do not have a chance to raise them, so people decide to abandon them.
There are several pet shelters where homeless pets are cared for. I am so sorry to see them in that environment and I am surprised for people's indifference and cruelty. I think that anyone who sees or knows about a homeless pet should drive them to a pet shelter. Then the number of homeless dogs would be reduced.
In conclusion, I want to say that a dog is the best friend for people. People should care for and nurture them. Everyone must first reflect on whether a dog can grow with them and then only buy one.
