Bear got groomed today!
I really suggest to all you interested in getting a dog, go to a shelter, not a puppymill, all the dogs I've gotten have been amazing. They've even made it super easy to find your ideal dog at shelters with the internet, you can even search certain breeds. You can get Corgis, Pomeranians, German Shepards, Huskies, etc... all from a shelter. Expect to spend at least $500 or more on your dog for the first year if you are expecting to take good care of it. Premium food($30+/month), dog treats, accessories/toys, vet visits($50/per visit), license update($15/year), shots, flea prevention($10/month), grooming($35+), leash/harness($20), doggie tag($20), doggie bags etc it ads up fast. Over time expenses get cheaper since there are many initial costs the first year and obviously it would be cheaper if you bought cheap dog food, but I don't suggest it if you love your furry friend and want them to stick around for a while.
