Ever walked into an animal shelter "just to look?" I did, and I ended up going home with a death row dog.
Things worked out in the end, but it could've been a disaster. What if he hadn't gotten along with my other dog? I made a split emotional decision that affected many lives. And so many other people do the same, sometimes with terrible results.
Having a pup in the family is a beautiful thing, but it's best to be completely sure you're ready. So, are you?
