“At first I picked a Ridgeback for aesthetic reasons and after looking into it, I found that they are also very good natured and loving.

I did a lot of research online and I bought a book about the character, history and training of Rhodesians; a very depth analysis of the breed.

About a year and a half after doing research and looking into puppies, I found the right breeder at the right time.”

“There are always reasons not to, but in the end we decided to go for it.

Our hearts trumped our rational thought.

We always liked Dachshunds.

We joked about having one because they are funny and sweet.

I did a lot of research, as to avoid a puppy mill.

I read about what to ask breeders.”

“I didn’t question why to get a dog, I wondered what was stopping me from getting a dog.

My fiancé and I are from the U.K. and we wondered what would happen if we went back with a dog.

Luckily there is no more quarantine, if you get your dog the right injections.

Also, I thought about living in a small space, and giving our dog a good quality of life.

We wanted to know that with our work schedules that we could hire a dog walker and get him enough exercise.”
