Bringing a dog into you household, into your family, into your life is a big deal. It’s a big commitment and you need to make sure you’re ready for it. Once you do make the decision, however, the first thing you should do is visit an animal shelter. A lot of people have the dog breed they want in mind when getting their first pet.

You never know what you’ll find or who you’ll meet in an animal shelter. You might lock eyes and fall in love with a dog there. And by adopting them, you’ve easily just impacted their life the best way possible. If you’re looking into getting a new dog, stopping by an animal shelter won’t hurt.
