When youâre ready to welcome a new puppy or dog into your home in San Jose, you should carefully consider the breed that would best fit into your lifestyle. Veterinarians recommend thinking about whether you have young children or plan to have a baby, and whether you own or rent your home. If youâre a renter, youâll need to review your lease agreement to make sure that dogs are allowed. Some landlords only allow small breeds. If youâre growing your family, youâll need a dog that is very gentle around children.
