How do you find the dog that is a perfect fit for you?
Finding the right dog takes some research. First you need to understand the commitment to time, patience and effort that’s required to raise a dog as a new family member. Educate yourself on the dog’s behavior and needs for attention, nutrition and health care. Talk with friends, breeders, dog adoption groups and veterinarians to get an idea about the history and breed characteristics as well as what activities, time and energy it will need from you.
