If you are thinking of getting a new puppy, then it is important that you do some research into dog breeds and dog owning, to ensure you pick the right puppy to suit your personality and lifestyle. Although each dog is individual, many breeds have specific traits and characteristics, so you should jot down what qualities you would like in a dog, and do some research. For example if you have young children then some breeds of dogs such as Labradors and Golden Retrievers are more patient and good natured, and will put up with all of the ear pulling and extra noise!
You must also think about your lifestyle and how much time you can devote to your dog. Some dogs get very lonely, and need people around them for most of the day. If you work long hours and have no one else that can keep your dog company, then you will need to think very carefully about dog ownership.
There are many ways and places of getting a puppy. You can look in the telephone directory for local rescue centers and breeders, but remember puppies will be in high demand in these places so you may have to go on a waiting list. It is also a good idea to look at the classified advert for puppies sale, and the Internet is a good resource for a huge range of puppy and dog websites, such MyPuppiesSale.com
