Adopting a pet into your home can be an exciting adventure. Dogs can help lower your stress levels, reduce your risk of a heart attack or stroke, keep you active, and provide you with an endless supply of tail wags and comfort. However, if you select a dog that does not fit with your training expectations, family needs, or grooming budget, the result can be a constant state of tension instead of a growing bond. We want everyone to feel safe and happy with their adoptees. That's why we made a cheat sheet of questions for you to use when selecting the right dog for you and your family.
