Puppies are 100% adorable. Who can resist a cuddly, clumsy little ball of fur? Not me! But have you ever tried to raise one? They need to be potty trained, taught not to chew your things, they require more vaccines and vet visits, and you never know quite how they’ll turn out in the end. Basically, they’re a lot of work and commitment. That’s why I would argue that it’s much better to adopt an adult dog. We already know the ropes. Most of us know when to go outside, we already have our habits and personalities formed, and you know exactly what you’re getting into. Plus, puppies will be adults in a few months anyway. You might as well skip the hard part!
