I am thinking of getting a little puppy soon but don't know which breed to go with. How did you find your pets? Did you adopt them from a shelter or find them a different way (breeders, pet stores, etc.)? Did you know which breed you wanted before you started looking? I want a small or medium size dog, friendly, and good with kids (for the future...hopefully). I'd appreciate any info, pics, etc. I LOVE all dogs, so I have no idea how and where to look. I've never been to an animal shelter. How does the adoption process work? Also, what are some of the first steps when you get a puppy (vaccinations, etc.)? I had dogs all my life but I was still very young when we got our last one, so I don't really remember anything. Thank you very much for your help!!!!
