How to choose the right dog for your family
BY evaluating the dog's breed and background as well as your home and lifestyle, you can assure your family of a fun and loving companion.
* Consult a veterinarian.
* Consider your daily routine. Are you or someone else home often enough to care for a dog?
* Do you have young kids? If so, choose a breed that generally gets along well with children.
* Evaluate your living environment. Is it rural or urban, an apartment or a house? A Chihuahua may love your one-bedroom apartment, but larger breeds need more room
* Talking to dog owners can provide additional advice.
