SOME IMPORTANT THINGS
Can I afford to properly care for a new dog?
Food, vet bills, training, pet sitting, all these
things can add up.
Do I have the time required to properly care
for a dog?
All dogs, especially young ones require exercise,
play, mental stimulation and training.
What breed fits my lifestyle?
All dogs are individuals with different personalities
but unlike any other animal, dog breeds have been
bred for very specific jobs or functions. Even though
most dogs now a days are not doing the “job”
they were originally bred to do, that instinct is
still in them. So it is important to understand the
breed or breed mixes in a dog.

Puppies are cute but they are a lot of work. Maybe
an older dog that is already potty trained and past
its puppy chewing stage would be best fit for you
and your family.

Adopting a dog from a shelter or a rescue group is
saving a life! There are many wonderful dogs of all
breeds, ages, shapes and sizes available for adoption.
