I love puppies! They are so cute, as babies are.
That's as far as it goes. Those puppies need constant attention and training. They may be inclined to play rough or pee or poo wherever without some kind of training. And even during training, mistakes are bound to be made. There are also special foods and other needs, like shots. A lot of time, money and patience is needed. I always felt that it takes a special person to be able to do all of those things and wind up with the best dog ever.
For my money, I'll take an adult dog. That dog's personality is already established, along with his or her habits and training. As a matter of fact, an adult dog may be even in more need of a forever home because it is grown and maybe not so appealing in the way of looks. But it doesn't need that much time to become a loving pet for a loving owner.
