First of all, we want to congratulate you because you want to do this step! Adopting a pet could be one of the most beautiful things someone could do for helping a pure and innocent soul. Of course, we are not the only ones who recommend you to adopt one, and not to buy from pet shops, and vets or other animal specialists agree with that as well.
If you choose to adopt a puppy from the streets that needs you the most, not only that you will save a life, but you will also have unconditional love from an animal with sincere feelings. It is debatable, however, the case of the animals that are sold at the pet shop because they are also treated quite badly, considering that they must sit in a cage and wait for someone to buy them. But by analyzing the intensity of the negative experiences of the two categories of pets (rescued ones and those from a pet shop), people choose the animals that have gone through the worst experiences.
Nevertheless, if you already have a family and your kids want to have a pet, then you have to consider some things before the big step, namely the personality of your child. Based on their character features you could choose an animal with similar traits and that way they should get along together nicely.
According to a veterinarian, Dr. Liz Bales, “to really create the human-animal bond, (the fulfillment) has to be mutual. They will best fulfill your needs when you fulfill their needs, then the magic happens with a lifelong bond.”
Another thing you have to consider as a parent is the fact that animals have different needs and this involves different living costs. Whether we talk about different types of food or various vaccines, pills and other veterinary consultations or cosmetic costs, your pet will need these interventions more or less.
Therefore, once you decide on the adoption of an animal you will see that your child will grow up very harmoniously, he will learn what true love is, he will treat all animals with respect and loyalty and he will have a bright future in human relationships.
