Pet Selection

Millions of dogs are brought to the shelters each year because the lifestyle of the owner and the breed of dog are mismatched. Selecting the perfect puppy or dog for your household is extremely important. Dogs and owners should be matched appropriately to satisfy each others needs. It is important to choose your new dog with your family lifestyle in mind. There are many things to consider before choosing your new canine member, such as breed, size, sex, age, grooming maintenance, energy level and personality. Selecting a specific breed does not guarantee a particular behavior, but choosing offspring from animals with desirable temperaments does increase one's chances of getting the best pet.

If you are interested in getting a new puppy, it is important to choose one that is friendly, outgoing, and curious. Puppies that are easily frightened or snarl at people should be avoided by inexperienced families or those with small children.
