Choosing an Allergy Free, Healthy Dog

When buying a dog, make sure that the dogs eyes are clear. Paleness of the eyes is a sign that the dog might be suffering from some underlying disease. The nose should be moist and the gums are pink. The skin of an allergy free dog should be smooth, without scales, free from fleas, ticks and no visible redness. The coat should be shiny, soft and full. If you go to the breeders home, observe the parents of the dog as this would helpful in giving you an idea more or less what kind of dog it will be when it grows up.

These signs of a healthy dog are just a few of the things to consider before bringing a dog home. Research any breed thoroughly before getting that puppy.
