The phrase a dog is mans best friend really does apply here as many do prefer to have a pet dog. The country alone spends nearly half a milliondollars to ensure that their 4 pawed friends are being taken care of but that does not mean that they do not assist families with children as health care and education is at a reduced cost or nearly free allowing the country to have additonal funds to take care of dogs. So it would be no surprise to see many dog spaws filled with all types of pooches living their best lives.
