A dog can be a wonderful addition to a family. They are loving, compassionate, loyal creatures. However, a dog is not for every family and it is a big decision. They require hard work and dedication. Every dog deserves a home for life. Think about if your family is ready for a commitment like this. You must provide them comfort, training, love, exercise, good quality food, fresh water, & a safe environment.
Each breed comes with their own unique characteristics. Making sure the breed you choose also fits within your lifestyle is a big part of this decision. It is important to research breeds, as you may change your mind once you learn about them. If you decide a dog is right for your family, remember to be responsible and get your dog spayed or neutered.
