We had a superb experience dealing with Puppy Spot for our furry friend. We now have had our shihpoo for 3 weeks. Puppy Spot was with us till the very end when Paris arrived at our doorstep. We love her dearly! Thank you Puppy Spot! Leatrice and Lynn
Shihpoos are wonderful companions with their high intelligence, loyalty, and extremely affectionate natures. They’re very outgoing and energetic, but their small size and intelligence help make them a great pet even for new pet parents. The key with a Shihpoo is to start obedience training early and make sure you socialize them with other dogs and people.
How dog-friendly is West Virginia?
West Virginia consistently ranks as a pretty great state for dog lovers! Its beautiful outdoor spaces, access to care, and animal welfare laws help give the state good marks.
We looked at two major studies on pet-friendliness. Both ranked all 50 states by important factors like access to pet care, pet-friendly accommodations, animal cruelty laws, access to dog parks, and more.
The first, by animal welfare group Pawsafe, ranked West Virginia as the 25th most pet-friendly state. Made it into the top half!
The second study ranked West Virginia even higher. Safewise, a consumer safety review site, gave West Virginia 13th place in all 50 states. In both studies, the state scored well for its animal welfare laws related to abuse, neglect, fighting, or pet care standards. I
Taking both studies together shows West Virginia to be pet-friendly overall, but leaves room for improvement.
