What to know before bringing home an adopted dog
Dogs play a special role in a home, bringing laughter, love and warmth. But dog ownership comes with great responsibility and there are certain things to consider before beginning the adoption process. Estate has partnered with Adopta-Pet.com for the “Homes for Dogs Project” which aims to find homes for 20,000 dogs in 2015. The company will engage its network of 87,000 sales associates to help adoptable dogs find homes in their communities through a variety of tactics, including hosting adoption days by partnering with local shelters in the Adopt-a-Pet.com network.

You should already have identified the veterinarian you plan to use before taking your dog home, as a dog’s medical care should begin immediately after adoption.
Remember to budget for dog ownership. Beyond regular supplies, food vaccinations and check-ups, add in some padding as an emergency fund.
As every dog lover knows, there is nothing quite like coming home after a long day and being greeted by man’s best friend. With a dog adoption, you can make your home an even more welcoming, comfortable place.
