Getting A Dog For Free
How can you get a dog for free?
For years we have really wanted to get a dog but when we think about it, the initial cost of getting the breed we want is ridiculous not to mention all the essentials so we keep putting it off.
Last week I noticed someone was looking for a pet sitter while they are on holiday as all the local pet sitting businesses were full so I jumped at the chance. Little did I realise these businesses can charge £20 per day for boarding, I said I'd do it for free as long as food, treats etc were covered. I think I made her day as we will be looking after her dog for about a month in total.
So I'm quite looking forward to tomorrow when we will be introduced to the new addition to our family. This gives them the opportunity to meet us, ask questions, we can find out more about the dog and ensure we can meet all her needs while they are away and they know she's safe with us as we've never met them before.
So we will get a free dog, it will probably mean I get more needed exercise (a great thing) and a little extra company/distraction from work.
There are actually sites that encourage this such as - https://www.borrowmydoggy.com/ I think I'll probably end up doing this quite a few times! I will miss them when they're gone though!
