Why did I create this guide?
I didn't know much about owning a dog when I first got Pickle 3.5 years ago, but I'm happy to say that he's improved our lives considerably. The beginning years weren't the easiest but we stuck through and he's a happy camper in my home. Which gave me a thought, and that thought was if more people knew about the type of dog they were getting they may be better prepared than I was for their new family member.
Here are some amazing facts, according to the ASPCA, there are currently 62% of US households with a pet, that makes 72.8 million dogs are owned in the US. And here is another hard number to swallow, about 5 to 7 million pets get brought into a shelter annually, and 60% of the dogs who enter a shelter end up being euthanized.
For whatever reason they were brought into the shelter by their owners, maybe their personalities didn't work out, or the dog had destructive behaviors, or they didn't get along with the kids, this is a shockingly high number of pets being turned away.
I am a firm believer that many of these dogs wouldn't be brought to the shelters if the owners were made more aware of the personality type, energy level, temperament of the animal before being adopted and hopefully by education we can reduce the number of animals going into the shelters.
For this application I decided to highlight the dogs energy level, their playfulness with kids, whether they shed, and if they got along with other dogs in order to help you decide on your next pet. I am hoping this information will help you find a great companion who will be a great match with your household.
Here's to helping you in your search for a furry friend looking for their forever home.
