Pay Attention to the Street Dogs.

Street dogs are mostly neglected and ill-treated animals around us. The number of street dogs is increasing day by day. To make fun, we often throw stones at them. Lack of food, good shelter, care and security make them suffer a lot from birth till death. There is a wrong notion among us that they bite people. Generally, dogs are meek, loyal animals. They bite only when they are teased and provoked. They rather guard the locality against theft and other hazards. Only a little care, sympathy, and sufficient food can make them true friends to human society. Considering all these things we should extend our sympathetic attitude towards these faithful creatures.
