Orlando Dog Rescues & Shelters
The Top 5 Reasons to Adopt, Rather than Buy a Dog or Puppy for Sale in Orlando.
Finding the Best Match - Luckily, when you decide you want to add a furry member to your family, you have many dogs to choose from. Dogs and puppies of different breeds come with genetic tendencies that vary between breeds. More importantly, they also have distinct personalities, as each is an individual! It is common for rescuers and animal shelter staff and volunteers to already know the personality and tendencies of many of their dogs and puppies. This means they can better match up your requirements and lifestyle with the ideal dog or puppy. When searching for a new dog or puppy in Orlando, consider your lifestyle first. Answer yourself these questions:
Do you have time to housetrain a puppy and teach them the rules of the house?
Can you provide adequate exercise for an active dog, or one who needs mental stimulation and lots of interaction?
Will your new four-legged friend have other pets as buddies around the house?
Is it critical that you find a dog who is comfortable with children?
Purebred or Fabulous Mixed-Breed: Shelters Have Them All! - Looking for a specific type of dog or puppy? It is estimated that 30% of all shelter animals are purebred. There are also large numbers of “breed-rescue” organizations specifically devoted to rescuing and adopting out a particular breed. On the other hand, you can find your own one-of-a-kind, amazing mixed-breed dog in a shelter. We love those fabulous mutts! Due to a larger gene pool to draw from, often mixed-breed dogs have fewer behavioral problems or health issues, and can even live longer than purebred dogs. In short, whatever you’re looking for you can find at your local shelter or rescue group in Orlando, and right here on Adopt-a-Pet.com.
