Adopting a Puppy

Over the past few months my wife and I have talked about possibly adding a puppy to our family. Our talks never developed into much, we had the intention but never set the wheels in motion. Last week my wife and I went to visit a friend of mine in Spring City.

It was the first time I had been to his house in a few months. Since my last visit, he adopted a Black Labrador from a guy in Philadelphia that could no longer care for it. From what I am told, the dog was kept caged in a small apartment for the first 2-3 months of its life. As soon as a suitable adopter was found, the puppy was given a new home. My friend went on tell tell me how the dog, Bruno, went from being terrified of the grass in his back yard, to playing in it for hours at a time.

After playing with the dog for a bit, my wife and I got to talking about adopting one once again. Unlike before, this time we took the next step and did some reading on the adoption process. With a variety of different facilities within driving distance, it has become tough to make a decision on where to start.

We have decided to look into the local Humane Society. Since making the decision, I have sent them an email asking for some additional information on the adoption process itself. I’m looking forward to hearing back from them so that my wife and I can work to get ourselves a new family member.

With any luck, my wife and I will be able to find a Siberian Husky, Black/Chocolate Labrador, or German Sheppard puppy. We are not looking for a purebred, just something with dominant characteristics.

Do you have any pets?
Care to tell us about them?
