Adopt the Right Dog Blog

"Adopt the Right Dog" helps you decide what type of dog is right for you. Are you a couch potato or a marathon runner? Do you have a heavy duty vacuum? I could vacuum everyday - my dog does LOTS of shedding. Maybe a less fury friend would suit you better. Do you want a dog for protection or one to snuggle? A puppy? Don't let that cute little face fool you - puppies are mischievous, and need lots of training. Maybe a more mature dog would be better. Know what you need to know BEFORE you adopt and give your new dog a forever home. In return, your dog will give you years of love, licks, and loyalty!
