How important is breed?

If you’re just starting your search, you may be asking yourself what kind of dog or cat would be best for your lifestyle. You may be diligently researching the characteristics of each breed, making a list of which breeds would and wouldn’t be a fit. To you, we say: Relax! It’s okay to do your research, but don’t feel like breed selection is the ultimate key to finding your perfect match. It really is about much more than what looks good on paper: it’s about the individual dog or cat’s personality and the chemistry you feel together (yep, we have chemistry with animals just like we do with other humans!). And don’t forget about those marvelous mutts! Not only do you get a one-of-a-kind companion, but many veterinarians say that mixed-breed dogs tend to be healthier than purebred dogs, who tend to be prone to certain genetic conditions, depending on the breed.
