【Getting a Dog】

I have been considering the possibility of getting a dog for a while now and finally decided to go for it. I said I didn’t want a dog that yips and I don’t but I live in an apartment so it has to be a small do. So what to do? I did some research and found out that not all little dogs will drive you crazy barking all the time. In fact it appears that it has a lot to do with how they are raised, although little dog breeds tend to be more high strung.
 
I have also decided that I am not going to get a puppy. Instead I will adopt a dog from one of our local animal shelters. So the next step in my search for the perfect companion is to go online and see what type of dogs are available for adoption and then go visit. The tricky part is to find an animal with a good temperament that will fit in with the family.
 
I also decided that I don’t want to get a puppy….instead…. I am going to be looking for a dog at one of the local dog rescue facilities. This is where is will get tricky because the dogs behavior is important. However, the rescue facilities appear to work really closely with the dogs they have in an attempt to ensure the animals get placed in the right type of home.
 
I also wasn’t sure about the type of dog we should get. We live in an apartment so I know that it cannot be a large dog and it cannot be aggressive. Off we go in search of a new memv
 
So excited!!! I have been considering getting a dog for some time now and I finally did it.
My girls and I went down to a local animal shelter and there she was. She is a female chiuaha mix who is 1 ½ years old and her name is “Mija”. My girls wanted me to look for a puppy but I decided not to go that route. There are so many dogs who need homes and I fugred I would just keep looking until I found one that would be a good addition to my house.
