Please be prepared for a life-long commitment when you get a dog. A dog is not a toy that you can toss to the side when something else gets your attention or you grow up or you get married or you get divorced or move. - Having a baby? If you have another baby, are you going to give the first one away cause you won't be able to give the first one the attention it needs or they may not get along? - Moving to a place that doesn't take dogs. Why can't you move to a place that allows dogs? - Can't give it the attention it needs? Why did you get a dog? - Can't give it the attention it needs? Why not? How do you know how much attention it needs to be happy? - Going off to school? So why did you get a dog knowing you were going to be leaving? Please be a responsible pet owner. Don't just dump your dog off somewhere. They depend on you for their food, water, shelter, and safety.
