Getting a dog on a whim seldom ends well. Careful consideration and planning is essential.
From medical bills to food to daycare, dogs are costly. Financially instability means waiting.

Frequent long trips away will stress a dog out. Better to bring one home when travel stabilizes.
Lots Of Travel Planned
