Want to save a life & have a best friend for life?
Once the decision is made to become a dog owner the hardest part is the next step; which dog do you choose? I have always gone through the adoption method as I love the idea of being able to provide a loving, new home to an orphaned pooch, whatever his or her circumstances came to be.

Sometimes though, as much as you'd like to re-home a little puppy or full grown doggy you just can't find the right one.

Thanks to the RSPCA's new Smart Puppy and Dog Buyer's Guide you can now be guided through the process of buying a puppy from a responsible breeder, finding the right dog to suit your home and life situation and all those other little bits and pieces you need to know if you want man's best friend in your life.

The step by step guide talks you through different types of dog breeds and helps you find the right match and even helps you find a breeder that is NOT a puppy farm.

There are some useful facts and tidbits on the site such as how much the average dog owner spends on their companion each year- I'll leave that for you to find out!

A printable check-list is another handy tool to take along when you finally purchase your new mate so you can be sure you are asking all the right questions and taking home the perfect pet for you.
