MAK­ING THE RIGHT MATCH

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Your Best Friend -

Con­sider the dog's tem­per­a­ment rather than breed. A smaller dog may not al­ways be the best choice for a se­nior as they could pos­si­bly fall over the dog and in­jure them­selves.

Think about how much ex­er­cise the ca­nine re­quires and whether you are able to meet th­ese needs or make ar­range­ments for some­one else to ex­er­cise it.

Pon­der po­ten­tial ve­teri­nary bills and your abil­ity to meet th­ese ex­penses.
