Thanks for your opinion!
I'm sorry you took issue with the second paragraph, both my dogs had been rescued from rescue organizations, my German shepherd was abandoned and left outside all the time and had mange when I received him and my Papillon was held up by the neck and had rocks thrown at him by teenage (15 year old) boys.
My local animal rescue wants me to come up with a good caption to support these animals , and the animals in our community. We will be trying to raise money to help the dogs in need with fleas,heartworms, tapeworms, ear mites,surgery,fixing ..etc. Animals come in every day unfixed with problems and are dropped off because they aren't wanted anymore, some people bring in puppies constantly every time their dog gets pregnant.
The caption needs to be perfect and I do appreciate any ideas, this picture and caption will be copied on to a 2x3 ft dimension if anyone wants to know the size it will be. I want the caption to not be offending but appropriate for this fund-raiser.

I love the picture and the sentiment but I would take issue with the second paragraph "some do not know right from wrong" etc . That is moral judgement which dogs do not have . This idea I hear all the time , and it is owners with this thought that often inflict "abuse" whether it is being held down to submit - till they understand , being banished (isolated) till they understand , be humiliated by having garbage tied around their neck , till they understood to not raid the kitchen waste bin, or that they should understand which people you like and which you don't and act accordingly - meanwhile the dog is operating in-the-moment , as always, and fending for his feeling of self preservation.
these are things I have had to have discussions with when owners needing help with issues, or even slipped out when someone comes over as a potential owner of one of my pups . (not!)

Good caption for a good picture? :)
Took this picture this morning of Balto my 1-1.5 year old male german shepherd and came up with a caption.
What do you guys think?
