Your close-knit crew is about to get a little bigger.
Dogs can teach kids responsibility, compassion, and cooperation — not to mention they're the best playmates anyone could ask for. Before you adopt any pup, however, always research the best kind of breed for your children and lifestyle. Some dogs do better as playmates for rambunctious older kids, while others have the gentle, patients souls more suited for little ones. If you have young children at home, consider adopting an older dog as well. Temperaments can vary based on the individual animal, but these 20 friendly breeds are a great place to start your pet adoption search, according to the American Kennel Club.
How you choose can depend on your living arrangements, schedule, activity levels, and budget. The average lifetime cost of raising a dog is more than $20,000 across about 10–15 years, including food, supplies, and veterinary care. When you welcome a new pet into the family, expect to provide your pup with consistent, loving training as well. Your child will also benefit from learning how to interact safely and respectfully with animals. Don't forget to create a family schedule for walking, playing, feeding, and grooming! With sweet, loving dog breeds like these, your crew won't be able to imagine life without their canine pal.
Rob: Instead of cooperating to protect people and provide opportunity, the new agreement will just trap people in Honduras who were desperately seeking safety in the United States.” Why is it the responsibility of the U.S. to always intervene in these matters when the United Nations should be the ones delegating and making these governments accountable. We cannot solve the problems of the world, that is why everyone flees over here thinking we should be their supporters! Our tax money should be spent on our OWN citizens, and not be encouraging illegals to migrate. That is not going to solve their problems if we just keep letting illegals come in. They bring their bad human nature of being brought up in gangs and corruption. It is in their nature to survive to be who they are and letting them in will only bring down our communities with crime!
