1. Impulsive adoptions/purchases
Before you buy or adopt a dog, you need to think about where you live (is it an apartment? Do you have a large backyard?), your lifestyle (how much time you will have to spend and play with the dog each day), does the breed you’re looking at have a tendency to be territorial (not befriending strangers/visitors to your house easily).
Carefully consider all factors before deciding on the breed of dog you select. This will
go a long way in ensuring that your pet fits in with your life and vice-versa.
