     Common misconceptions
     before adopting a dog:
    1. We’re getting Rex for the kids - they will do all the work.

    Maybe for the first week or so, but most kids will slack off soon enough and the responsibility will fall on your laps. You are considered to be the owner because you are over the age of 21. If your kids do not walk Rex, then it is up to you that it gets done. As much as we talk to our kids about responsibility and as much as they agree to care for your new dog, we all know that sooner or later most kids will lose interest or get tired.

    If you can positively answer these questions and concerns, then you may be ready to adopt Rex.
