If you are not prepared to spend at least $400-$500 on a new dog in the first month, and cannot pay at least $300-$500 yearly in vet costs, food, grooming, and heartworm and flea/tick preventive costs, please do not purchase or adopt a dog at this time. Having a dog as a family member is a privilege , not a right. You must be prepared to care for your dog emotionally, medically and financially , in order to give that dog proper care and consideration for his/ her needs. Just like human children, dogs depend on YOU to be responsible for all of their needs, and if you cannot provide that care financially as well as emotionally, please wait until you can to bring a dog into your life.
