If you are a pet lover and can see a new dog in your future, I would suggest joining, or at least signing on to the AKC newsletter. You can find a breed that will suit you and your family perfectly – from liking kids, high or low energy, specific needs, types of hereditary illnesses and on and on. Even if you have in mind to adopt – you can still look up the breeds that appear to make up you new baby. The AKC is amazing for dog lovers in general – even if you can’t have one right now, you can attend the Club’s events and just have a ball.
Coming up in January is the 2020 AKC Meet the Breeds 11th annual Event. It will take place in NYC at the Javitz Center on January 25 & 26th. For just $32.00 for adults and $10 for children you can have a fabulous day learning about the dog categories and a bit of canine history. I recommend getting your tickets in advance. www.AKC.org
You can witness the first appearance of the Barbet (Bar-bay), which means “beard” in French. He is from the water dog category and is certain to have you wanting to take him home with you!!
