With the progression of novel, a violent and partially tamed dog is regressing into wolf as both dog and wolf are spoken as closely interlinked, when Joseph remarks ‘Hey, Gnasher! Hey, dog! Hey Wolf, holld him, holld him!’ 16 Genetically speaking, the wolf, of course, is biological cousin to the many forms of domestic dogs, and various forms of dogs do appear throughout Wuthering Heights.

Shelters have a kill list to where the animal will get euthanized in a period of time. Animals may be euthanized because they are old or even if the shelter think they look unadoptable. Along with animals looking unadoptable or old, if animals were once adopted from a shelter and then brought back, they will be put on the top of the kill list because they are seen as not wanted anymore and a waste of time.

Therefore, many countries have taken part in conserving them by keeping the Penguins captive. This has lead to many moral issues regarding the conservation of Humboldt Penguins. Firstly, the Humboldt Penguin usually spends hours of hunting and swimming in the wild, however in the zoos they cannot swim long distances as the area and length of the pool is very limited. Many experts think that generations of penguins who have lived their lives in zoos will have a different body compared to wild penguins as they do not have the need to swim long distances to catch their prey. Secondly, the Humboldt Penguins are very timid animals, and when put into zoos often the tourists make them even more afraid and shy.
According to TheDodo, out of the 7.6 million pets dropped off at a shelter per year, only 2.7 million get adopted. Amy Klein, a frequent visitor of L.A. shelters, comments that often enough, there are not enough volunteers to even take the dogs out to kennels for a mere 20 minutes, also adding that many dogs never get to go outside. This is why me absolutely must take a stand, if nothing else, a person can offer an hour of time to make sure that some animal somewhere feels loved and gets to see the sun, even if just once. That is what volunteers do; volunteers
But so are every breed. Pitbulls aren’t even at the top of the list for most likely to bite. Pomeranians are, but Pomeranians aren’t thought to be aggressive or scary because of how small they are, but Pomeranians were bred as guard dogs ("The Truth about Pitbull Aggression.”). Dobermans, Great Dane, and german shepherds are also all breeds who bite more preferentially than pit bulls.
