10. But how do I know if the dog is right for me?

Picking a dog is a big deal! This is a lifelong commitment and you are adding a new family member! You should think long and hard about the time and financial commitment involved in having a dog before taking one into your life. You might meet several dogs before making a decision. We work with you to make the right match and are happy to talk through what dogs might be right for your lifestyle. Keep in mind that we have many applications and do not reserve dogs, so if there is a dog that you are thinking about but haven’t committed to, there is a chance the dog might get adopted by someone else.
