Thinking of getting a pet for you, a loved one or your family? It’s important that the puppy or dog you select must be compatible with your lifestyle.
If you’re choosing a dog from a shelter or rescue organization, you want to be sure you are not adopting someone else’s problem dog. After all, most people want their adoptee to become a loving member of their family and not a costly, long-term rehabilitation project.
