When you were initially contemplating what breed of dog you wanted we are sure you read-up on what would and would not work with your family. Granted, there are those families that simply see a dog, connect, and decide to bring it home. And that is really cool!

We just did an article regarding certain dogs, with flat noses, who are not allowed on airplanes because of potential over-heating and breathing problems. Just think about adopting a dog without knowing that little fact, especially if you travel a lot, then discovering they are forbidden to fly with you!
