National Puppy Day is March 23rd!  Before you decide to get a puppy for yourself or for someone you love, be sure you are prepared:

  1. Choose to adopt, not shop – so many shelters have wonderful puppies looking for a home.  A great place to start is at PETFINDER!
  2. Beware of puppy mills and puppy mill dogs.  Visit CLOSE PUPPY MILLS for information on how to spot a puppy mill
  3. Prepare your home and your heart – adopting a puppy is a BIG responsibility. Make certain your home is ready for a dog and that you have adequate yard space for your new addition.
  4. Ask yourself if you have the time for a dog, especially the time to give to a puppy.  Puppies are like babies – they need fed, pampered, potty trained and need regular doctor’s appointments.  Make sure you are up to the task and have the funds for a new furry friend.
  5. Consider dog training classes.  Puppies need to be socialized and taking a training class can make puppyhood easier.  Visit our friend AUNT PENNY for more information!

These are just a few tips to help you – good luck and the best part about a puppy?  New puppy smell!  LOL!
