It can be so tempting to want to get a dog when you see a cute ad for them or you walk through a shelter and make eye contact with what you think is the puppy of your dreams. While I fully support adopting from your local shelter, there are a lot of things you should take into account before falling in love with one and bringing it into your home. Sure, you’ll be able to get some new followers and likes on Instagram, but is that really worth having to completely change virtually every single aspect of your life? Seriously, it’s going to affect your work, your personal life, your relationships, and your leisure activities. It’s like having a baby, except you won’t go to jail if it happens to slip out of your arms while you’re carrying it around your living room.

So, is a dog right for you? Before you decide for certain, take a look at these 10 reasons why you shouldn’t buy a dog. From there, you can come to a clearheaded conclusion on the matter.
