Giving a pet as a gift
I would not advise giving a family member or friend a pet as a gift. You have to find out a lot of details first. You have to find out if they even would want a pet or even another pet if they already have a pet.
You have to find out if it is a child that you want to gift a pet too if the parents even want a pet for there child they may not want that. Also, you have to find out if that person has an allergy to pets.
When you decide to do something like this you have to find out a lot of information before you go get a puppy or a kitten. You don’t want to get somebody a pet and then they don’t want it.
You have to be careful when you give a pet to a friend or family member
Yes, you have to be very careful when you decided to do something like this. You just can not just go get a pet for someone without finding out the above information and if they do want a pet what kind they want.
The breed, if they want a puppy or kitten, male or female if they are spayed or neuter if they have their shots. There is a lot you as the person giving the pet to someone have to be responsible enough to find out this information.
Don’t be hastily in getting a pet
If you want to gift a pet be sure you have all the information so that you get the right pet for someone. I don’t want to ever hear that you gifted a pet and then the person didn’t want the pet.
There have been incidents where people have gotten pets as gifts and they had given back to the people that given them back and that is not good. That is why I said you really shouldn’t do that.
I understand you want to do something nice for someone but you have to look at the big picture. You just don’t know a lot of things so you have to be investigator before you leap and do something like this.
I am not against gifting a pet because they will have a loving home but you have to really be careful and go about it the right way. You have to look at everything.
You have to see if they live in a house or an apartment if they have an allergy to pets, the kind of pet they would like to have, and listen to the person if they talk about having a pet that is your first clue. Then you can take it from there.
I think gifting a pet is a great idea but like I said you just have to investigate the situation real carefully. I don’t want to see any more homeless pets there are enough of them in this world.
Always remember if you do decide to do something like this always go to your local shelter and adopt. Do not buy a pet because the shelter pets need loving homes too.
You have to think this out very carefully before you do this because you don’t want to get a pet for someone and then they don’t want it. Especially if you plan on getting for a child. The child will want it but the parents may not you have to do your research on this very carefully.
I just don’t want to see another pet end up in a shelter or back in a shelter. I want to see a pet get a loving home and to be kept in that loving home. Pets have a way of bonding with a human right away if they are a puppy but it takes time when they are a full grown dog.
It takes about a week for a dog to be comfortable in a new home. I usually give them about 2 weeks because then you can get them on a schedule and that makes it easier for them to adapt.
Having thought about gifting a pet for a present is a great idea but you need to find out thing like do they allergy to pets. will they take care of it or will mom and dad end up taking care of the pet, Will mom & dad end up taking care of your pet?
Having a pet is quite the responsibility and you have to be able to take care of your pet on your own with guidance from mom & dad, You have to ask questions like, does mom & dad even want a pet in the house.
These are just a few things that you have to talk with the parents and find out if they can have a pet. You have to consider it. Because if you don’t you will have a big problem on your hands then.
If you they have a pet you have to see if it will get along with the new pet. There is alot research involved in gifting a pet. If everything is go and you can gift a pet take the person with you so they can pick out the pet they want.
You don’t want to pick out pet and the person doesn’t want it so that is how you can no mess up. This way the person is happy and the pet is happy. And another thing they will be able to take care of the pet on your own because they were given a choice.
The reason for that is because their personalities will be a better match for the pet and the person that you are gifting to.
Remember to adopt from your local shelter. They need love and home too.
