I stand by my comments above; they’re true to my experience.
Ultimately, I think we all agree that it helps to know what kind of dog will fit into your lifestyle, spend some time with a dog you’re interested, ask the rescue organization and its fosters questons, maybe foster a dog yourself, and be patient with whatever dog you decide to adopt. They are worth it! And they may even reduce the risk of heart disease, so says the American Heart Association! 🙂
I hope the information here is helpful, Caitb. Good luck!
