National Puppy Day Celebrate puppies on March 23 N


a onal Puppy Day, March 23, was founded as a day to celebrate the special way puppies make


us feel and to con nue bringing awareness to the opportunity of pet adop on from shelters and the horrors of puppy mills.


As we celebrate puppy breath and playfulness, we need to remember the  me, dedica on, and commitment pets need and deserve. Include this list as you consider adding a pet to your family.


Family agreement Never bring a pet home if all adult members of the household do not agree on having a pet. Not only is the stress of having an unwanted pet hard on the family, it can be stressful for the pet and may result in unwanted behaviors.


Time


How much  me do your and your family members have to dedicate to the care and training of a pet.


If


you are rarely home for dinner or spend most of your days on the run from one ac vity to another, the  me may not be right to add a pet to the mix.


Older dogs o en require less  me and have some basic training. Shelters o en have dogs that were beloved family members, but end up in the shelter due to their owners health issues or fi nancial problems.


Lifestyle


Consider the breed’s needs and compare them to how well they suit your living arrangement and lifestyle. If


w 10 - NE Connection


your normal day includes hours of reading books on the couch, do not select a high energy breed, hoping it will calm down once you get it home. If you do, you will both be unhappy and the chances are high your new best friend will fi nd himself back at the shelter. On the other hand, if your favorite pas me is jogging, consider a Viszla, not the Shih Tzu.


Expense Pets have needs: shelter, food, medical care, equipment. If you don’t have enough money on hand to cover immuniza ons and spayed or neutered surgery, wait un l you have saved enough.


If you have decided it is  me to add a four-legged family member, check out your local animal shelter. For more informa on on Na onal Puppy Day, visit www.naonalpuppyday.com.
