A Dog Changes Your Life
Dogs are social animals and want and need your attention, even when it's not a good time for you. Older dogs as well as puppies need to be taken outdoors regularly, even if that means waking you out of a sound sleep in the middle of the night. Adopting a dog that is 'free to good home' still requires money for supplies, veterinary care, food, and other essentials. Whether you choose to adopt a dog or puppy in Western Cape, you'll have to make some major adjustments to your lifestyle.
Adult Dog or Puppy
When you adopt a puppy, you have to deal with housetraining, behavioural training, and socialisation. Being persistent helps ensure you have a well-behaved dog you will be proud to own. Adopting an adult dog comes with its own set of rewards and challenges. Adult dogs are often the last to find homes and, according to Pet Pickings, close to half a million adult dogs are euthanised every year in South Africa because they are adopted to loving homes far less frequently than puppies. By choosing to adopt an adult dog in Western Cape, you may be saving a life. Adults may come with behaviour issues that require a large amount of patience and tenacity on your part to overcome.
Supplies for a Healthy, Happy Dog
Once you've chosen the perfect dog for your family, stock up on the necessary supplies. You can easily save money by purchasing secondhand dog supplies like crates, food and water bowls, leads, collars, and toys. Most used puppy and dog supplies are in good condition, and the savings you enjoy should make you happy.
It's easy to find and adopt dogs and puppies in Western Cape. Your dog, in the right environment, will thrive and should make a wonderful addition to your home and, more important, your life. Consider rehoming a dog or puppy in Western Cape.
