I'd like to get my child a dog for Christmas this year. Is there anything I should worry about when choosing a gift like this?
The golden rule here is to look for a dog that suits your family. It can be big or small, active or sedentary, but you must make sure that it's personality is one that will blend easily with the entire family. There is really only one precaution you should take and that is to avoid pet stores boasting signs like the one below.
