Looking to adopt a dog? It's important to research the type of breed you are interested in adopting. Do you love the outdoors, go for hikes and bike rides and want an animal companion to run along side you? Not as active...maybe a dog that doesn't require as much exercise is the right fit for you. Remember to keep THEIR needs in mind, and be honest with yourself about what you are ready to do for your animal companion. Of course all dogs need to go out and run, but there are certain breeds that require a lot.
When dogs who require a lot of exercise don't get what they need, they don't know what to do with that excess energy and start becoming aggressive, or acting out in other ways. Let's help them stay balanced by doing our part, they will appreciate and love us for it.
Have fun choosing the right dog for you and your family! Remember shelters are full of wonderful, loving dogs, so please adopt!
