None of us has mastered the ability to see into the future, but most of us have plans or goals of what we would like to accomplish. What are yours? Will a dog fit into those plans ten, twelve, and even fourteen years into the future?
People who do purebred dog rescue and those who work in shelters hear the same stories day after day: "My kids wanted the dog but have now left for college, and we don't have the time (or the desire) to care for the dog anymore." Or, "I got the dog while I was going to school, and now I have a job and can't care for her anymore."
Before you add a dog to your family, try to take a look forward in time. What do you plan to be doing in ten years? Where? Will a dog fit into those plans?
