Dog breeds: How to find the right one for you.

Hello Ruffers!
Usually, to adopt or buy a dog is not an easy process, since certain considerations must be taken into account. That is why we decided to help you to find the perfect breed for you. For this, it's necessary to define what you are looking for, and know more about dog breeds.
The first and most important things to establish are:
  1. The environment that you can offer them (house, apartment, garden ...)
  2. Your income (what you are willing to spend).
  3. Characteristics of your family (children, elderly people, people with disabilities, etc.)
  4. The character of the dog, it is extremely important that you know the way in which it behaves since you will avoid problems.
  5. Type of activities that you want to do with the dog, such as biking, walking, climbing, running, hiking, or simply just as a company.
