How To Meet Your Perfect Dog?

If you are looking to meet your perfect dog companion you came to the right place. Picking out the right dog is a difficult task because this will be your pet for the next 10-15 years. So how do you find your canine soulmate?

Looking in all the wrong places.

When it came time for myself to pick out a dog, I found myself going to luxurious and posh dog breeders. I figured out that I was looking in the wrong place trying to find a dog on google and searching dog breeders near me. After looking at 14 or so different dog breeds and breeders as was just as confused as when I started my search. I realized I needed to take a step back and figure out what kind of dog I was looking for.

All I knew is that I needed a small dog living in the city to fit in my small apartment. While keeping an opened mind it helped me discover my cute baby pug. I wasn’t interested in pugs at first, I was in the market for a Corgi, Maltese, and Beagle after looking around at a few I realized that none of those dogs that I saw had the personality I was looking for.

At this point I started looking at shelter dogs to widen my horizons. This is where I started to fall in love with pugs however none at the few shelters that I visited had exactly what I was looking for as well. I was about to call it quits before I called one place that just had a bunch of pug puppies that needed a good home. This is where I picked up my furry bundle of joy almost 11 years ago. My pug still has all of the charisma and charm as she did the day I picked her up. It was at this point I realized that looking for a specific breed isn’t what you should be set on the connection that you have with a dog is the important part.

How To Find Your Dog Soulmate?

Avoid Expensive Breeders: I began my search here and realized that it was one of the worst ways to look for a dog. Also adopting a dog that is a certain breed like a Collie or better known as Lassie dog breed has certain expectations from that breed. These expectations have a larger chance of owners surrendering their dogs to shelters. Millions of dogs end up in shelters every year and hundreds of thousands are being euthanized. You shouldn’t look for a dog based on breed because you won’t be happy with your choice in the end.

Keep an Opened Mind: Keeping an opened mind helped me find the best dog for me. I knew in general that I was looking for a small dog, but I never refused to look at a large dog. You never know when you will find the perfect dog so don’t close the door on one before they come in.

Don’t Shop Online For A Dog: A dog isn’t something to be purchased online you need to feel a connection with them before you think of spending a penny. The best way to find your doggy match is to interact with as many dogs as possible and its almost impossible to do that online. Dog Shelters are a great way to find a dog you are searching for and on the plus side you get to play with a bunch of dogs.
