How To Find The Right Dog For Your Home, Life, And Family
Research the organization or person from whom you will get your new dog to determine if they are good. Talk to the shelter staff members and volunteers about each dog you want to get an idea of background and personality. Rescue organizations are very selective because they care so much about getting their dogs into the right homes. If you choose to purchase a purebred dog, be sure you find a friendly, responsible breeder with a good reputation. You can ask your local dog shelter for referral or get a referral from a rescue organization recommended by a national kennel club. A responsible breuer should be willing to show you the premises. Be aware that dogs or pups that show signs of aggression, fear, or other behavior problems will need extra training and attention from you. When you adopted your dog, know what to expect for the first few weeks. . . .
