Most people prefere to adopt a puppy so he can grow with their kids.
A lot of people don’t think about the hard work that goes into training a new puppy, socialization, lots of exercise and almost constant activity.
If you don’t have the time or don’t want to do much training, remember that adult dogs need homes, too.
An adult dog is often a much better fit, with low energy, but just as cute and affectionate.
Adult dogs are the hardest to be adopted from shelters.
They are often already house trained, obedience trained, thye will probably respect you and your house more than a puppy.
They will not need the same time to exercise of a puppy and will stay more often on the couch with you to be cuddled or jusr to take a nap.
They will be more receptive to learn thinghs just because they want to make you happy and they have already lived many situations.
Adult dogs have grown into their size, shape, and personality.
They are not as time-consuming as a puppy – you have more time to enjoy each other.
They are accustomed to human schedules so no nighttime feedings, potty breaks, or comforting.
Adopting an adult dog is a great way to save a life.
People forget that they need homes just as much as puppies do.
More often than not, these dogs are not turned into a shelter because they have problems, but because their human parents have problems.
Adopt a senior dog and you will have a best friend for many years to come.
