Choosing The Right Dog For You

Once you decide to get a dog, there’s a wide range of adoptable pets to choose from, whether it’s a mutt or purebred. The Onion offers some helpful tips for choosing the dog that’s right for you.

  • First, decide which type of dog hair you want to stick to everything you own for the rest of your life.

  • Find a reputable breeder who is certified by the American Kennel Club and truly cares about the purity of the canine master race.

  • Do some research into which breeds have the highest resale value.

  • A collie is a great choice for families with particularly dim-witted kids who keep falling down holes.

  • Many shelter dogs have abandonment issues, so don’t get one of those.

  • Be sure to ask the pet store which breeds are least likely to chew on their genitals while company is over.

  • If you’re looking for a dog to provide personal protection, you should really just get a gun.

  • Older dogs might suffer from glaucoma or arthritis, so if you want to adopt an older pet, make sure to remind everybody that you’re a paragon of altruism most people could never even aspire to.

  • Get one with a spot if you plan on naming it Spot.

  • If you are allergic to dogs, don’t worry: Your local shelter will be glad to show you any number of hairless monstrosities.

  • Whatever breed you decide on, make sure the dog you choose is cute enough to save your failing, loveless relationship.
