Is a pure or mixed-breed pooch most appropriate for your lifestyle and dog-owning desires?
Some owners prefer the pure-bred dog while others gravitate toward a potentially unknown mix of breeds. Such is truly a personal preference. Regardless of your pet’s pure-breeding or mongrel status, all dogs should be treated with the same degree of love, socialization, and pursuit of veterinary care.
Instead of deciding that one breed is right for you based on the dog’s physical appearance, I suggest future owners create a checklist determining a variety of characteristics about their potential canine companion before going about selecting a pure or mixed breed pooch.
