Very wise article! It makes an important point too ~ adult dogs need homes too. Sure puppies are small and cute, but I've always adopted adult dogs. They make wonderful companions.

I adopted a six year old lurcher bitch from someone I work with, she wasn't appreciated after they had a child.She is the most devoted, loving animal I ever had and people always comment on the way she looks at me. It doesn't have to be a puppy who is the right dog for someone. I do believe that if you are open minded the right companion will come into your life. The only draw back is I am left with a quarter of my queen size bed.

We've also got to get along with them since they're going to be spending the rest of their life with us
