Depending on what type (and even breed) of animal you plan on buying consider what you expect from your new pet. Do you expect it to provide protection for you and your family? If so, maybe it’s better to get a pet that is known to display protective traits and temperaments. Plan on using your pet as a service animal? Find a pet or specific breed that is more docile and disciplined.
Before making a final decision, take the time to consider what kind of pet you want and what you anticipate it contributing to your home.
