So you want to be a dog-owner. Considering how beloved dogs are as pets, and the fact that dog owners tend to be happier people who live longer, I don’t blame you. Whether you want a companion to greet you when you come home, and to go out on adventures with, or your kids just want a cute pooch to love and play with, the fact is that dogs really are a man’s best friend, so the real question is … which dog is right for you?
Being a responsible dog owner means choosing a dog that will fit into your life, so both you and your newest family member are happy. There are different types of dogs to choose from, depending on whether you have a big or small space and yard, how much maintenance they need, how active you are (and would like your dog to be), and it’s important to know the characteristics of a breed, as well as the history of the dog you are adopting. Once you decide on the dog that is right for you, visit GetYourPet.com to find a dog ready to be loved.
Some popular dog breeds to consider:
– Pitbulls – they are easy to maintain, lovable, and great for active people who love the outdoors
– Pugs – perfect for seniors as they require little exercise but are affectionate and cute, and good apartment dogs for New York City residents
– Beagles – super cuddly with kids, so a great young family pet
– Labrador Retrievers – easy to train and love high energy, large families
Get Your Pet is an online pet adoption community where people who want to adopt a pet connect with people who need to rehome a dog or cat. You will find out your pet’s full history, why the dog needs to be rehomed, their favorite activities, if they have any fears or allergies or behavioral issues, their medical history- including whether they have been spayed or neutered and vaccinated, and more. It’s important to know why a pet is being rehomed, whether he is housebroken, how he gets long with stranger and children, and what medical issues he may have had or needs to have taken care of at present as you prepare to bring your pet home.
I’m not sure what type of dog we’ll get when they time comes, but having all the information about the dog when we adopt him, and knowing we are rescuing a pet that need to be rehomed, makes us feel good about adopting through Get Your Pet. We feel like we’d be able to add to our family and be able to responsibly and properly care for our new dog, all while bringing joy to the boys and enhancing my own life as well. After you find the right dog, GetYourPet.com will help you through the adoption process, and even connect you with a vet to help you responsibly care for your newest family member. There is a sweet dog out there waiting for a warm and loving home- maybe it will be yours ♥︎
