Rescue or pure bred?

It makes us all feel good to think we saved an animal’s life. We see adds on TV or social media about neglected
or abused pets. We must use our heads not our hearts when we make a commitment to care for a pet for 10 to 20 years.

That clumsy charmer with the big feet can grow to 100 lbs in a year. An older dog with an unknown, and unproven temperament might not like children or tolerate other animals.



Pets from a pound or group may be cheap or even free but think of the Veterinarian  care they may need. Shots, spay or neuter and dental care can add up.

Do lots of homework before deciding.

Next time we can check out the pure breeds.

To breed and train their show dogs. Gwyn soon opened a grooming shop and boarding kennel.

far away as Raleigh to have them groomed and cared for at Tag'm Kennel.
The Mathises are members of Piedmont Kennel Club, The American Miniature Schnauzer
Club and are AKC Breeders of Merit. Can you guess how they got the name Tag'm ?
