Yumna Saloojee from South Africa wanted a pet more than anything. When she finally set out to get one, she fell head over heels for a cute little Alaskan Malamute puppy. It was love at first sight and she couldn’t wait to bring her new fur ball home.
After all, a dog is man’s best friend, and she always wanted one to call her own. The idea of opening her home to a dog was never far from her mind. After long agonizing months figuring out which dog to get, she finally brought home her tiny puppy. But it only took a few short months before her puppy started to grow and transform into a mature dog. But her puppy’s transformation into adulthood had her stunned.
Choosing to Adopt
One of the biggest questions people have when they start their search for their four-legged friend is, how big the dog will get when it’s older. When Yumna decided to adopt, size wasn’t an issue. She just wanted a pet to call her very own. But then something stunning started to happen. The puppy started growing fast.
Large pets can be fun to have around. They are like miniature teddy bears that you can love on. But they do bring their own challenges and responsibilities. Larger pets require bigger spaces to move around and play in. Not to mention the grooming and shedding that takes place. Nevertheless, there are some people that absolutely love larger breeds. So picking a large dog breed is a personal choice. For one woman though, she didn’t quite know what she was getting into until after the fact.
