First, you should make sure everyone in the family wants a furry friend. Do not forget to prepare all the paperwork, do the research to choose an animal that will best fit your lifestyle, and puppy-proof your home.

Then, choose a shelter and check the chemistry with an animal. Surely, you may already have heart set on a certain breed, but you may unexpectedly fall for quite an unusual pup.
Like this one!
A few years ago, Benji was living in a shelter. He wasn’t the first choice on people’s adoption list, as he was deaf and blind even though he’s a young dog.
But luckily, one family came across his adopting listing and knew he belonged with them. We mean, with these cute little face, it’s no wonder they wanted to take him home.
Turns out Benji’s a mix of Yorkie, Pekingese, and Maltese – what an unusual combination! And since day one, he has been the family’s joy with his love of life and resilience.
Benjie enjoys sitting in the grass, having multiple naps, belly rubs, and morning walks. He’s also eager to join his family on all of their adventures, being eager to spend every other moment outside.
Owning a dog comes with great responsibility. Each pup is unique and has complex needs to attend to. And we’re glad Benji has found someone who can make him this happy!
