I have been tossing around the idea of getting a new companion! A new furry companion, that is! Probably a dog — but cats are so mysterious and independent — and I have considered the possibility of a Maine Coon. They are so cool! But then again, they do have all that long hair.
If I were to decide on a dog, she, yes ‘she’. I have decided a female may be more loyal and loving…probably not but.. just a quirk thing I guess. So a female dog, probably medium size with short hair…pretty maintenance free is what I am going for. Good with people but also protective and a good watch dog. One that I can take out walking…and one that is already potty trained definitely!
And, since I am older, maybe an adult dog…there’s a good idea!
A dog rescue near me or dog adoption near me is where I would look first and I know if I ‘fall in love at first sight’…that will be my new best friend! And, I just finished looking online at a few rescue sites….too many cute dogs. I believe it would be best to go in person, but where to start? I have found that checking out ‘reviews’ of different sites pays off! For rescue sites I bet that would work well. Other peoples perspectives and experiences…good to know.
Just look at some of the adorable faces shown at the rescue site links listed below.
So when all is said and done I will take myself out to a couple rescues and also the humane society. I can’t wait to ‘rescue’ some cute dog in need of a loving home.
If you’re thinking of doing the same, do check out your local rescues and humane society locations. https://www.adoptapet.com/breed-pages –
and ASPCA.org – https://www.aspca.org/adopt-pet/adoptable-dogs-your-local-shelter — just to share a couple! There are so many dogs and cats waiting for you…us!
