I’ve been wanting to get a dog but with my busy schedule and lifestyle it’s not fair to get one at this point. I’ll wait until my boyfriend and I have a large, fenced in backyard, with lots of dog parks and trails around so we can go for long walks and runs. We also need time, a crucial aspect of getting a dog. Time to train, and teach the pup. I’ve even gotten to the point where I’ve started to choose names. I’ve also narrowed down breeds. I would prefer a german shepherd, retriever, or lab.
I’m a fan of larger dogs, and hope one day I might have two, to keep each other company of course. When it is time for us to go get a dog we will go to a shelter. My german shep is a rescue, and my first dog as a child was a rescue as well. I think it’s so important that dogs who have been abused or neglected are put into safe, loving, and caring homes.
