Choosing the Right Dog

AJ is an adoptable Great Dane in Anaconda, MT
There are so many tips about choosing the right dog. I highly advise getting a dog from a shelter or rescue group. I found a great article at Petfinder with tips on how to find the right dog for you. Here are a few of my favorites.

  1. Ask about a return policy - a good shelter will accept any dog on return for life.
  2. Make sure you can spend time with your new family member outside the shelter before adoption.
  3. Find a trainer you like prior to adoption.
  4. Don't judge a shelter by it's cover. Meet the people and see what you think.
  5. Go with an open mind.
This is just the beginning of our pet adoption series. Make sure you check back next Thursday for more about adopting your new family member.
