If you are planning to bring in a puppy to your loving home, there would be a lot of questions that would need to be addressed before you take the big step. Some of the questions that would require greater pondering are:

  • Which Breed - Whether it will be a small dog breed, a medium breed or a large breed of dog
  • Gender - A lot of people prefer male dogs over female, while some prefer female to male dogs. Your decision to choose a male or female dog will be crucial for future.
  • Registered or non-registered dog breed - Whether you would want a puppy which comes with registration papers or one which is not registered.
  • Age of the puppy - Ideally puppies should not be weaned off mothers milk till about 45 days. Mother's milk ensures a stronger immune system for your puppy.
  • Mixed breed vs Pure Breed -Whether you want a pure bred dog or are you okay with a mixed breed dog for your family.
  • Should I Buy from a breeder or a Trader (Pet Shop)? - How about going for an adoption instead?
