One of the biggest dilemmas of living in a small home, aside from "where on earth do I put all my stuff", is do I have enough space to invite a pal with fur, four paws, and a tail to come and live with me? When you're looking to adopt a dog, you're going to want to give that super cute little fur ball everything it deserves and more, right? So does a small and maybe garden-less space cut it? Can you adopt a dog if you live in a flat?
Obviously before you head down to your nearest dog rescue centre and fall head over heels in love with every last pup in the place, there are some important things to consider. Adopting any dog is a huge responsibility. Thinking about whether you're in the position to offer the new furry addition to your family all the attention it needs is crucial. Getting a pet is a big financial responsibility. Not just the daily costs of food but vet bills. which can get expensive should your pet become ill. Then, there's also some very important small-space specific steps to take before you welcome a dog into your flat. So before you take that next step, here's what you need to think about before inviting a four-legged friend to come live with you.
