Getting a pet is a big deal! It's a new member of the family! And no matter what kind of pet you get, adopting is an awesome, albeit, life changing (in a good way!) decision. From goldfish to full grown Mastiffs, animals need our love, care, and attention to live happy and healthy lives. So, as with any long-term relationship, the focus at the start is all about compatibility.
So, what are some things that you can think about while as you're getting ready to click that 'adopt' button?
Where You Live
Living arrangement can play a huge role in a pet’s happiness. Cats, for example, are fine hanging out in a house all day. They’re the perfect pet for an apartment as they are more than content living a life indoors. While a large dog for example, can’t stay house-bound for long. They need space to run around and play.
If you’re enjoying apartment life and looking for a dog, something small like a Miniature Pinscher might be a better alternative. These loyal companions do need some activity but they can also binge some TV with you, too. Honestly, perfect for most people if you ask me!
How You Live
Are you a big time traveler? If so, you might want a pet who’s up for adventure.
The happy and energetic Beagle would make a great activity buddy. Another breed perfect for outdoor fun is the Labrador Retriever. These intelligent canines are happy to hike, run, or splash in any outdoor activity.
Who You Live With
If you have a big family, a Jack Russell Terrier is great for household with kids, as they are highly social and might go crazy if left alone too long. Corgis can also be great for families. Fun and playful, Corgis are happy to get worn out with the family, or even help to wear out your kids.
Another great option for families is the Australian Shepherd. Aussies can also be adept workers, as they were first bred to help herd sheep, meaning they can be as helpful as they are loveable.
Live to Love
Like people, all dogs have different personalities and their traits will vary both from breed to breed and dog to dog. Adopting a pet is a big decision, but one born out of love.
