What type of dog is right for you?


Article produced by Dolores of Pet Pause

PORTAGE COUNTY (PRESS RELEASE) -- After answering our previous questions about getting a pet, you decided on getting a dog. Let's take it a step further so both you and your new dog will live a long and happy life together.

Do your research on the type and breed of dog you want.

Go on line, borrow books from the library to research your choices. 

Be open minded-you may like to have a St. Bernard, but by researching you may find a Schnauzer is the best dog for you.

Visit your local pet shelter-these pets are already born and are looking for a loving home.

Go to petfinder.com which is a National listing of shelters that have their pets info.

If you must have a purebred dog - google  breed rescues, go to a reliable breeder.

Good breeders do -care for specific breeds, make sure their puppies are going to good homes.

If you still are not sure what type of dog you would get - volunteer to walk dogs at your local shelter. They need the help and you may just find your new best friend.
