Start your search for your canine friend on the internet. Visit the sites of the American Kennel Club, American Humane Society, and niche dog websites to get an idea of what breeds work well in different placements.
Your choice of breed must reflect the living environment, as well as your family’s requirements. Huskies are an example of beautiful dogs that require daily exercise. If your home has a small yard and you don’t get the opportunity to walk the dog regularly, a husky can become a nightmare to handle. These dogs need to run and become escape artists when they don’t get enough exercise.
In such a situation, a small dog like a pug or poodle makes for great family pets that suit smaller homes. If you have space, consider purchasing a larger breed. Labradors and retrievers are excellent examples of dogs with friendly temperaments that love to play.
Avoid advanced breeds like pit bulls and bull terriers. These kinds of dogs develop jealously quickly and seek to dominate other family members for your attention. This characteristic can lead to aggressive behavior and accidents are sure to follow.
