Adopting A Dog Breed
Dogs are an amazing addition to the world around us, and even more so to take into your home and make a part of your family. Dogs bring us joy, friendship, and offer us unconditional love and loyalty. With so many breeds, and so many shelters and adoption agencies, how do you know which dog to choose? Do you choose one based on its appearance? Or maybe you choose one based on its temperament? In any aspect, there are many questions.
The first question most people ask when adopting a dog is what is the best breed of dog when adopting? While most breeds are all the same (four paws, wet noses and a big smile) some kinds might not be right for you. If you don’t want the hassle of a larger dog, consider a small breed (but know that many small breeds have tendencies to bark, and their barks can be shrill). If you want a dog that is rugged, consider a larger breed (but know that many large breed dogs are strong, are strong willed and will take a “pack leader” in the house hold to ensure the dog knows who is boss). Are there breeds that you like better than others? Just like cats, dogs have some strong willed and strong minded personalities. Some will be domineering dogs, some will be lap dogs. Most breeds are the same though, looking for love! Consider any and all breeds, or consider ones that you know you will like.
