TO GIVE OR NOT TO GIVE? A PUPPY, THAT IS!

By Bark Busters Home Dog Training

Cute and cuddly and oh-so-sweet, puppies are eternally appealing. And while a darling puppy might seem like the perfect gift choice for your child, remember that many such presents end up at animal shelters. A 2007 study at an animal shelter reported that 54% of the dogs surrendered to the shelter were six months to three years old and 15% were less than six months old.

“Be absolutely certain the gift recipient wants a puppy or a dog,” said Donna smith, dog behavioral therapist, Bark Busters USA. “A pup is not some battery-operated toy you can play with, then store away in the closet.”
