Despite being the epitome of cuteness (we may be a little biased here at DogTime, but that's our view), puppies are a big commitment. Turning these jumping, chewing, nipping, yipping, piddling, pooping little creatures into well-behaved dogs takes a good deal of time and effort.
Without that time and effort, puppies--no matter what the breed or bloodline--easily develop problems such as nervousness, aggression, and house-soiling. And once the novelty has worn off and the tiny ball of fluff is a nearly full-grown adolescent, these problems land many dogs in shelters. Others are banished to the backyard for a lifetime of boredom and isolation. That's why it's important to think carefully and do your research before bringing home a puppy.Puppies
