Even though I am not currently in a place to adopt a dog I am very aware of the many benefits to having a dog. When I was single I thought a lot about getting a dog because having a dog around helps you fight feelings of loneliness and or isolation. They can help reduce stress and anxiety which seems to be what every Millennial struggles with these days. I know dogs are also helpful in getting you to be more active. I love having running partners and even a four legged running partner helps your motivation to be active and even helps you feel safer on your run.
I recently heard about a company called Puppy Spot that is a great resource for finding responsible breeders if you are looking to adopt a puppy of any kind. This company provides a health guarantee and a no puppy mill guarantee. They have all kinds of breeds to choose from and make the adoption process as easy as possible. If you are interested in adopting and don't know where to start, feel free to browse their website, and they even have a hotline you can call with any questions!
