If you're in the market for a new canine companion, PLEASE consider adopting a dog from your local animal shelter or a breed-specific rescue organization. Rescue groups spay or neuter pets and obtain any necessary medical treatment before adoption, screen for temperament, and work with dogs on any potential behavioral issues in order to make them better pets.
In selecting an animal for adoption, don't limit your choice to the perfect pup. Puppies are usually the first and fastest to be adopted from shelters, leaving behind many wonderful adult dogs in need of good homes. Also, some dogs may have disabilities which, while limiting their chances for adoption, in no way limit their abilities to make excellent pets.
For an animal lover, few things are quite as fulfilling as giving an unwanted pet a second chance at a safe home and loving family!
