2. Their loyalty can’t be beat
The loyalty of an adopted dog is incomparable. Although she may be just a dog, on some level she knows what you’ve done for her. She’ll never get tired of showing the affection and gratitude she feels for you. Even if you’re not the perfect pet parent, an adopted dog doesn’t hold a grudge and loves unconditionally.
3. It’s affordable
Purchasing a puppy can easily set you back several hundred dollars. Add on the cost of vaccines and neutering and you’ve got yourself a pretty hefty investment. Now, let’s look at adoption: most shelters charge a small adoption fee that also covers the cost of vaccines, sterilization and a microchip. For a minimal price, adoption will get you a dog ready for adventure—or a good cuddle.
