Adopting an Adult Dog

Deciding to adopt a new dog is a wonderful and rewarding experience. Adopting an adult dog has both advantages and drawbacks. To ensure a smooth transition into the home, there are few things to take into consideration.

  • Where are you getting your dog from? Many people prefer to adopt instead of buy. “Animal shelters are a huge asset to the communities they serve as well as surrounding residents – and, of course, to the animals. Unfortunately, their purpose and contribution to society are often misunderstood.” (Petmd.com) Contrary to what some may think, the shelter is a loving and affordable place to adopt a new pet.

  • What’s the dog history? It’s not always possible to know the answer to this question, but any information can go a long way to helping you understand a dog’s behavior.

  • Should I adopt a puppy or an adult dog? It really depends on what you’re looking for. “Puppies require the most work when it comes to house training. If you: (a) don’t want your things chewed up, or (b) don’t have the time or money to train the puppy, consider adopting an already housebroken, adult dog.” (Petmd.com)

Testimonial

I have been with Dr. Jones for 15 or more years. He has now cared for four of my dogs with the kindest most loving manner of any veterinarian in the area. I highly recommend him and his practice to anyone with a pet.
