WAKE UP WISCONSIN (WAOW)-- 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.
Here are some things to keep in mind:
Do your research on the type and breed of dog you want.
Go online, 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 care for specific breeds, make sure their puppies are going to good homes.
ABOVE ALL, DO NOT purchase a dog from a ‘mall store' that has several different types of puppies.
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.
Next week's segment will talk about getting a cat.
