Write a summary on what one should consider before getting a dog

 
You step into a pet shop. Immediately, you hear the sound of puppies barking. You walk closer and soon, every single puppy is coming as close as they possibly can to you. "Take me home ! Take me home !" you can almost hear them say. What do you do ? Do you pick up the cutest of the litter and take it home ? Or do you stop and consider if you are really capable of looking after a four-legged creature ?

Before you even seriously think of getting a puppy, you need to consider if you have the time to spend with the dog. Puppies are like babies. They demand a lot of time and attention from you. Make sure too that you have the space in your house for the puppy. It may very well fit into your small backyard now, but what happens when it grows bigger and needs more space ? You cannot lock it up in a little cage the entire day and hope that it will be happy. A dog needs space to run.

Besides that, you also need to check your financial status. Animals need food, and if they fall sick, they need to be taken to the vet. All these cost money. In fact, a visit to the vet may set you back more than a visit to your doctor !

It would be better too if you check with your family members first before getting the puppy to make sure that no one is allergic to the animals' fur. You would not want to have to give up your dog one day when you find your loved ones coughing and sneezing away.

So you see, dog ownership is a heavy responsibility. Think carefully before you decide to get a dog.
