Adopting A Dog from A Shelter
Adopting that cute puppy at the animal shelter may take a little more thought than just purchasing a dog license.
According to most pet professionals, there are a few factors that you should take into consideration when you adopt a pet from an animal shelter.
It is sometimes very difficult to predict how big a puppy is going to get by looking at it. That’s surprising to say, but with a mixed-breed animal, you really don’t have a clue how big it’s going to be. Unfortunately, there are a lot of unhappy owners once they find out this animal is two to three times the size that they had expected. Ultimately, these animals end up back at the animal shelter because they grew up and didn’t fit in the household anymore.
