At Awesome Doggies we know the important role furry family members can play in our lives. Nobody has to convince us— we know that pets are definitely part of the family. But they are also a big responsibility, and anyone considering dog adoption should weigh whether it is a commitment that would fit their lifestyle.
Will an Adopted Dog Fit in to Your Lifestyle?
One of the first considerations is whether or not a pet will fit your lifestyle. If you have a job or other commitments that require you being away a considerable amount of time, for example, a dog might not fit in to that framework since they are very social creatures. All pets, especially new ones, need your companionship.
How Much Care Will They Need?
All dogs need a significant amount of care including feeding, watering, walking, and grooming. All of these tasks take time and effort. Of course, the rewards are great.
Is Your Home Ready to Adopt a Dog?
There are many things to consider before you adopt a dog, such as whether or not you have a fenced area, or nearby park for them to run and play, or if you want one that remains mainly inside, and whether or not you have space to accommodate the specific breed you are considering.
Will a Dog Fit Your Family Dynamic?
Dogs quickly become family, but there is a period of adjustment for any new member. Make sure the dog you are considering adopting is one that will fit well into your already established household, such as one with children.
Should You Considering an Adult Dog or Puppy?
Both adult dogs and puppies come with their own set of huge advantages and will add to your life in amazing ways. They also have some things you should consider as well, such as health issues, socialization, chewing, or whether or not they are potty trained.
Should I Consider Adopting a Dog from a Shelter?
We are huge advocates of adopting dogs from our local San Diego Animal Shelters. There are many great dogs looking for the perfect home, whose chances become diminished as each day passes. Many of these dogs are purebreds, and all of them worthy of our consideration.
Dog adoption is a huge responsibility, but one that pays off in the end. We love hearing your adoption stories, and love being a part of doggie transformations!
