Dogs For Sale
Choosing the perfect household pet is a very important decision and should take careful consideration. Your new dog or cat will become a part of the family and must interact well with children if any are in the household and have a compatible personality type with their owners. The choice between getting a cat or a dog as a pet is usually a no brainer…it is generally true that people are inherently either dog or cat people by nature. If choosing a dog as the newest addition to your family, the venues to explore are purchasing a dog from a store or a breeder, choosing a dog from the local animal shelter or utilizing the service of one of the countless not for profit pet adoption agencies across the country.
If you have a specific breed of dog in mind, purchasing from a breeder is usually the best way to go. It wouldn’t hurt to first contact area shelters to inquire as to whether they currently have your desired breed but the chances are slim, especially if you are looking for a puppy or dog under 3 years. Dogs for sale by breeders have several advantages to the perspective buyer like being able to meet an entire litter and choose the puppy best suited for you and your family. Breeders will supply you with complete lineage information on the puppies including a certification that the dog is pure bred. Animal rights activist strongly prefer this method of purchasing a puppy than mall pet store citing inhumane treatment, malnutrition and illness and a harsh emotional environment for very sensitive young dogs which could lead to later potential behavioral problems.
Dogs available for purchase at mall pet stores are thought to be bred at “puppy mills” and it is believed that the purchase of one of these puppies contributes directly to this growing problem. However, the puppy mill business is not going anywhere any time soon. Without federal regulations and the amount of revenue earned through the sale of puppies, the large scale breeding farm business is flourishing. For animal lovers it is a heart breaking conundrum: although contributing to the financial success of the larger problem, to purchase and make a home for one of those puppies already caught in the system is to at least save one little life. The debate over mall pet store puppies continues to rage and does not promise a resolution anytime soon.
Finding a puppy to purchase is a very important decision and the subsequent purchase of a dog, regardless from which venue, is equivalent to making a promise. By bringing a dog into your home, you are promising to love, care for and keep safe the newest family member as they are sure to bring you years of unconditional love and joy in return.
