Retired working dogs make great pets. Before adopting a dog, please consider the following questions and they may help you to decide what age or type of dog is going to be the most suitable for you:

  • how much exercise you can give it?
  • how much garden you have?
  • do you have children or grandchildren?
  • do you have livestock?
  • do you have other pets?
  • are you in a rural or urban area?
  • what type of fencing do you have?
  • how long would the dog be alone during the day?
  • are you an active person or family?
