10 Things to Consider Before Getting a Puppy

  1. Are there any size or weight restrictions on dogs within your condominium or community? Many won't allow dogs over 30-pounds.

  2. Do you keep your home very warm? Some dogs are bothered by warm room temperatures. A Poodle would be a better choice than a Shih Tzu in that case.

  3. How much dog can you lift? A Pug is a happy-go-lucky companion but may weigh 18-pounds, while a Poodle usually doesn't exceed 7-pounds, and a Teacup only weighs 4-pounds.

  4. How much grooming can you do? If arthritis is a problem, avoid longhaired breeds such as Pekingese or Maltese, and look at short, smooth-haired dogs. Beautiful coats are beautiful because they're groomed daily.

  5. How much exercise does the dog need? Any Terrier is a high-energy dog requiring outdoor exercise. On the other hand, a Teacup Poodle can get all the exercise they need inside an apartment.

  6. Is the breed's temperament a good match with you? Some people find Terriers challenging and would do better with the sweet-tempered Poodle.

  7. Are you prepared for the costs of dog ownership? The minimum estimate for Teacup Poodle ownership is $1.00 a day.

  8. Can you acquire pet insurance? Some companies offer group rates to their employees and retirees, or you can purchase it through the AKC.

  9. Would being a "foster" owner satisfy your need for canine companionship? Even if you don't want to take a dog into your home full-time, shelters always need people who can walk and play with the dogs or provide temporary housing.

  10. Finally, have you considered what happens to your dog if you can't care for him? Toy breeds often live 15-years or longer. Be sure to include instructions in your will on how your pet should be placed.

    With a little forethought and planning, you can select the right breed of dog for your lifestyle and enjoy many happy years together.
