**PLEASE READ CAREFULLY**
Adopting a dog or a puppy is a serious responsibility. A dog that you adopt today will likely be a part of your family for the next 10 to 15 years, and perhaps more. A dog makes considerable demands on your time and resources. As a dog owner, you will need to spend time training, socializing, grooming, feeding, scooping poop, exercising and playing with your dog each day. Puppies and dogs that require further training need even more time and socialization. All dogs require regular medical care. Some dogs may eventually require special food or medications. Some dogs require regular professional grooming. Vet bills, pet sitting and vacation boarding fees may add considerable expense to your family budget.
