Whether they’re bred or adopted, one thing we can all agree on is that puppies are damn cute!
When it comes to getting a new dog for your home, most of us just opt to shop for them. The option of picking one from a variety of breeds will tempt anyone.
But there’s another option that some of us don’t even consider.
And in this segment, we’re going to tell you why you should stop shopping for dogs and start adopting them.
Don’t you ever worry about adopting through shelters! Many organizations dealing with animals are overcrowded. When you adopt, the shelters themselves run a medical check on the dog before you adopt them.
They also handle most of the behavioral issues. No dogs are kept up for adoption until they’re absolutely ready.
Adopting is less expensive than buying a dog. Additionally, they’ve already gone through a medical checkup, mental analyzation, have updated shots and are microchipped.
What else could you possibly want?
Most of the shelters already have training staff. Which means that you don’t have to go through the perils of house-training a dog.
Well, perhaps, only a little bit.
But it’s nowhere near to training an entirely new dog.
If you’re worried about the kind of personality your new dog will have, always contact the shelter staffs and trainers. They know their dogs and they know what they’re capable of. From hard limits to their favorite meal, the dog shelter is a gold mine of information for you to gather.
Don’t hesitate to call them for answers.
If you want specific breeds, look for them in rescue shelters. Those places have almost every breed recognized by the American Kennel Club. If you are fine with any breed, know that shelters mostly have both pure and mixed breeds.
