Owning a pet is something I’ve always wanted to do but never had the time or space for one. Since I am finally moving into my own place, and it’s finally summer, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to experience the joy of dog ownership. For years I have been doing research on what breed I would like to adopt. After looking at many breeds, I was torn between a few different ones: Maltese, Miniature Schnauzer and a Bichon Frise.
The Maltese dogs come from the Mediterranean island of Malta. Since they are generally less than seven pounds, it would be the perfect fit for my small house. I have heard they are good dogs and love to interact with people of all ages, which is good for when my younger cousins come to visit. They also do not shed much which is a plus!.
Miniature Schnauzers come from Germany! They are hypoallergenic and typically weigh under 18 pounds. They are known for being obedient and very friendly! Since the Schnauzers tend to be high energy dogs, I would definitely get my exercise with the amount of walks this dog will require.
Lastly, the Bichon Frise is a member of the toy dog group along with the Maltese. Luckily, they are hypoallergenic and children friendly. Weighing less than 11 pounds, it will be easy for me to live with and take to many places I go!
I am excited to continue my research and find the perfect dog for me! Picking hypoallergenic, low shedding dogs are ideal. Also having a small, lower maintenance, friendly dog is a priority for me because I will not have the biggest house and I will have to take care of it on my own. I love to go on walks and exercise, so having a dog would help motivate me to go outdoors everyday. My friends and family will surely get plenty of video of my new puppy on a Penless paw sticker. Attaching a Penless sticker to anything is so easy and so fun! Cannot wait to own a dog of my own soon!
