Chosing the *right* pet is very important. If you live in an apartment, don't select a large dog unless you are able to walk it extensively every day. Not fair to you or the pet to be 'cooped-up'. If living in your home, you really need a fenced-in yard, where your pet can play safely and keep out other animals. Small dogs or cats need less room or running areas. Above all, any pet needs love, not unlike humans, huh? Check your local Humane Societies for adorable, loving pets.
