Choosing a Dog
Always remember, looks aren’t everything. A scruffy mutt can be just as good or even better an animal companion than a highly bred dog.
The wee mongrel is often far more intelligent than a ‘dumb blonde’ pedigree and can even be a lot healthier. A cross-bred dog can often have the genetic mix which gives it ‘mongrel vitality’.
That means that it can avoid the problems inherited by pure bred dogs and may have a longer, healthier life. Also, when choosing a dog you should keep in mind that an affectionate, happy and loving nature is a lot more important than a super glossy coat or a long pedigree.
A dog is an individual with its own character and nature and not just a fashion accessory!
