Which is the Best Breed?
If you are interested in buying a dog, you may want to choose one that is not only beautiful but a well-rounded specimen that will grow up into a fine adult dog. You need to know some important aspects about the breed before you decide.
First of all, you need to assess your means. How much time can you devote to the puppy? If you have young children, especially young children, you should not get a small puppy.
A puppy is a living creature that needs a consistent schedule and lots of attention. Are you going to be home all day, or are you going to have a new family to feed and care for?
Do you have the time to give to the new puppy?
Some breeds, such as the Bichon Frise and Lhasa Apso, are highly strung. They were bred to be on a leash and may buck until you take them under control. These dogs are fine as long as you have the patience to deal with them. If you don't, you may be stuck with a pup that has a barking problem or one that is not at all willing to be trained.
