Adopting a dog or any kind of animal is a great responsibility. Before adopting a dog do your homework to determine what type of canine will be the best fit for your family and will do well with the weather in Florida. Keep in mind that Florida is a warm weather state, and dogs that have thick furs might not be a good fit.

However, the exception to the rule is if the dog is regularly groomed
(remember not to shave off all their fur as it serves to protect them
from the sun), has a cool or shaded area, and gets plenty of water and
exercise. Satisfying these conditions will help any dog live
comfortably almost anywhere.

Every state, city and county has laws that safeguard dogs as well as other animals. Florida has explicit rules, laws and regulations that have to be followed when adopting a dog.
