If you share your life with a dog, you already know how special and precious they are. Every single dog makes our lives just a little bit richer!
But if you’re thinking about getting a dog for the very first time, or you’re planning to get another dog, there are lots of important considerations to make.
Every dog can make your life happier, and every dog will tell you how much he or she loves you with every wag of their tail and slobbery puppy-dog kiss, but there are some dogs that need our help just a little bit more than others.
Take, for example, the millions and millions of mutts living right now in shelters all over the country, just hoping for their forever home.
Purebred dogs that fall into the parameters of organizations like the AKC have a much better shot at finding a happy home quickly, which is why we should all give the mutts and strays and rescues of the world a chance — every dogs needs a loving home!
