Dogs, Breeds & Breeders Ripley TN
Dogs make great, loving pets and there are many different breeds to suit any lifestyle or personality. Look to animal shelters and rescue agencies or reputable, licensed dog breeders when deciding to purchase your first puppy.
Before making any decisions, it should be know that adopting a dog does involve a financial commitment. Puppy adoption in particular can be costly; within the first year you'll have to budget for spaying/neutering and the necessary vaccinations. Carefully consider the costs of food, veterinary care, pet toys and beds, grooming and even boarding at a kennel if you go on vacation every year. Check below for more information.
