Choosing a pet

pets, dogs, shelters, rescue

 Choosing the pet that will become a member of your family has finally arrived. You have debated long enough and have finally decided that you want to add a furry friend to your family. But what type of a dog do you want?
However, you need to keep in mind a few things before you take that major step.
1-The type of dog that best suits your family
2-Will you adopt from a shelter or buy from a breeder
3-What’s your lifestyle

If you live alone or in a small apartment a large active retriever mix may not be right for you unless you are a runner or have a large family. The pet can run while you jog or family members can take the dog out to play.

A dog’s size, friendliness, and personality are important, especially with children. Remember you’re not just getting a dog but a family member.
There are so many wonderful animals waiting to be adopted from shelters and rescue groups. Man’s best friend comes in all shapes, sizes, and personalities. Many purebreds are left in shelters along with mixed so there is, unfortunately, a variety of animals waiting to be adopted into a kind and loving family.
Some may need a little training but any dog is always ready to please their master if given the chance.

Purebreds and mixed animals are basically the same. The only significant difference between the two is that purebreds, because of their parents and their ancestors are all members of the same breed, and are similar to a specific breed standard. Size, weight, temperament etc.

In my next post, I will discuss further mixed breeds and shelter animals.
