Are you willing to commit yourself to the dog for the duration of its lifetime? Dog care involves both time and money. Can you afford to take a dog to the vet? Do you have plans for your dog if you’re forced to relocate or you decide to start a family? Are you sure that you’ll still be able to care for your dog ten or even fifteen years down the line? Far too many dogs are given up each year by people who are no longer able to take care of them.
