An 8-week-old female golden retriever. She's too cute for words!

Pleasae go to the Humane Society and rescue an animal from them, not breeders. Also, older pets are wonderful. Kittens and puppies are like having a two year child 24/7. Our last cat was 19 when he passed away and we adopted a two year old tabby, Edward from the Peninsula Humane Society. He was a stray and so appreciative of a loving home. Please go to shelters!

Adopting an animal is wonderful, and is an option we considered and looked into extensively. However, we ultimately had to get the right dog for our situation. Some (not all) shelter dogs can have problems mentally or physically, and after looking at local shelters, were unable to find the right dog for us. Many local shelters are full of chihuahua, pit bulls and other breeds that did not fit our lifestyle. In the future, we'd love to get a shelter animal if possible, but we don't think we can handle it right now. I believe that humane societies would be the first to agree that you have to get the right animal for you, and for us, a puppy that we could train and raise was the best option. Thanks for sharing your story!
