Tips for a Successful
Almost every dog
in a shelter can provide you with unconditional
love and companionship, and every dog deserves a
lifelong, loving home. But some dogs are better
for you and your lifestyle than others. That's
why you should take the time to make a
thoughtful choice. After all, you're choosing a
friend who'll be with you for many years. Select
the right dog, and you and your new companion
will enjoy those years to the fullest.
A dog's size,
exercise requirements, friendliness,
assertiveness, and compatibility with children
should all be considered when making your
decision. An active, energetic dog might catch
your eye, but a quiet or reserved dog might be
easier to live with and care for. Also a dog who
likes to be touched and is not sensitive to
handling and noise will probably do well in a
house full of kids.
Puppy or Dog?

mature dogs. If you lack the time or patience to
housetrain your pup or to correct problems like

standard." Mixed breeds are simply combinations
of different breeds, and are less likely to have
disorders due to
the diverse gene pool. If you can recognize the
ancestry of a particular Mixed breed, you have a
good chance of knowing how he'll turn out.
Keep in mind
when visiting a shelter ...
There will be
employees available to help you choose the
perfect pet. A shelter is a unfamiliar place for
any animal. If you walk past a dog that seems
unfriendly or aloof, don't dismiss it. This
particular dog may just be frightened or lonely.
Ask the employee to let you visit the animal in
a quieter part of the shelter.

Emergencies seldom give
warning, but we can be ready for them. Most people have
first aid kits on hand for themselves and family members.
But what about your animals? Pet care experts recommend
having a pet first aid kit that's right where you need it if
an animal emergency occurs.
You can buy kits that are
pre-assembled or assemble your own. Keep them in different
locations so that you are prepared at all times, in all
places. It's wise to keep one kit at home, one in the car,
and wherever else your pet spends time -- the office, a
relative's or friend's home, a vacation retreat, etc. If
customizing your own, use a container that is sturdy,
waterproof and easy to spot when you need to locate it in a
