Heartbroken dog adopted after photo shows him waiting by dead owner’s bedside
But puppies, like all babies, need a lot of care and attention if they are to fulfill that promise. Puppies Are a Lot of Work Your puppy will need to be trained so that she knows what you want her to do and not do. She will need lots of safe exercise and play so that her body develops properly, and she will need you to socialize her with other people and animals so that she feels comfortable in the world.
All in all, a puppy is a tremendous amount of work — much more than many unsuspecting adopters realize.
For the animals at CAHS, “home” means hope.
Chances are good that their parents were not screened for inherited health or temperament problems, or that optimum pre-natal or post-natal care was provided for mama dog and her pups.

But you do need to be aware that even a young puppy has a history, and you may need to give her some extra care to make up for it.

Adult and Senior Dogs Are Great for First-Time Dog Parents If this is your first dog, or if you cannot devote the time necessary to train, socialize, and exercise a young or adolescent puppy properly, an adult dog could be a better option for you.
Before And After Adoption
If dealing with puppy pee on the carpet and needle-sharp teeth in your toes for months on end sounds like too much chaos for your taste, adopt an adult. You can see her physical traits and get some idea of her basic temperament, even though dogs in shelters and dogs newly in rescue foster homes may not always show their true personality right away. Still, with the guidelines we offer you later in this book, you can select a behaviorally sound dog who will improve and blossom once settled into your loving home.
