    Host: Should I adopt a dog if I plan on moving soon?

    Guest: One of the other things that you really want to consider before adopting a dog is what kind of changes in your household, or changes in your lifestyle do you forsee in the near future. Do you think you might be making a move? And how will your new dog be a part of that move. Are you thinking about moving different people in or out of your home, and how those people are going to interact with your new dog? So these are different things that you may want to think about but keep in mind one of the main reasons that people surrender their animals to a shelter because they say their moving into a place that does not allow pets. So always keep that in mind when you are adopting that you are going to have to consider your new dog when you making housing choices.
