Should You Adopt That Little Puppy?

Apr 16, 2008
A cute little puppy is a great addition to your house. This cute cuddly wonder will fill your house with happiness. If you are thinking of bringing a puppy to your home, you could adopt a puppy from a local animal shelter or you could get a puppy from a reputable breeder. In this article we are going to focus on adopting a puppy from a shelter.

There are several animal rescue centers that provide dogs to people who want to adopt dogs. These dogs require home and love. If you think that only 'problem dogs' are available in these shelters, then you are wrong.

It is sad but true that many older and adolescent dogs are thrown into these shelters every day. These also include unwanted puppies and puppies abandoned by their mom-dogs. You would be surprised to find purebred dogs and puppies in most of these animal shelters.

According to a research conducted, there are around more than eight million surrendered dogs each year in the United States. Adopting these dogs will provide them a house of their own. These homeless puppies are innocent and want a loving home where they can get love from their family members. Many of these dogs are as healthy as you can buy from any breeder.

You need to spend a lot of money when buying a purebred puppy from a breeder. You may have to spend somewhere around six hundreds dollars or more. However, if you buy a purebred puppy from a dog shelter, you can save a lot of money. These puppies are available for anywhere between an amount ranging from seventy five dollars to a hundred dollars. You can pay even less for mix breed puppy.

You can also save a lot of money in other ways when you purchase a puppy from rescue center. First and foremost, these puppies are spayed and even provided all of their shots. You can also get discounts on several privileges including training classes for puppies.

Another important thing is that you would be giving a new life to someone. You may not know but the fact is that millions of dogs are euthanized each year. These dogs are perfectly fine. The only problem they face is lack of family and a home.

Once you adopt a homeless puppy, it will prove to be the perfect mate for you. You can adopt little puppies, adolescent ones and older pups according to your desire. This depends on whether you want to take care of the dog from a very younger age or buy a trained one to stay out of hassles of obedience training a dog.

Adopting a puppy will let you do something for a creature that is living in misery for no fault of his. It is a life saving matter. All you require to do is to give a home of some love to the adopted pup and it will prove to be a perfect mate for you.

So next time you decide to purchase a purebred dog from a breeder, think twice. Try to visit a dog shelter and have a look at some cute little puppies that are waiting for someone to take them home. Take home a friend for yourself. Adopt a puppy!
