We have all heard the slogan 'A Dog is For Life, Not Just For Christmas' we all nod in agreement. in fact this slogan applies to any pet that we may purchase. Buying a pet is a real commitment that takes time, money and patience.
This famous slogan was created by Clarissa Baldwin, Chief Executive of the DogsTrust in 1978 but is still as relevant today. The trust have a longstanding campaign to raise the awareness of the potential consequences when pets in particular dogs are purchased as gifts.
We have all been there either as children ourselves, I remember begging my parents to buy a dog, or as adults now the ones getting pounded by our children wanting something cute for christmas.
So if you are considering a purchasing a pet for a gift for christmas or any other occasion, here are some things to consider
