Is It Possible To Have A Dog While I Am A Student?

by Solveig


Hello, I am a 20 year old girl debating whether or not I should get a dog while I'm in school. I have decided an Australian Shepherd is the right dog for me and I feel I have the knowledge that takes to raise one.

I am planing on getting the puppy in the spring so that I have the entire summer to get to know the pup before going back to school. I have experience with dogs and it's my number one hobby!

So my question is if you think it's possible to be a student and have a dog at the same time?
