Cuteness is not a factor for me. I would rescue a dog no matter how he/she looks. I’m a huge dog lover!

I absolutely would! I’m one of those annoying people who finds all dogs cute. I have a soft spot in my heart for scruffy, ratty looking dogs who look like they need some love.

Even the dog that won the “ugliest dog in the world” contest is cute in my opinion! As long as it was a nice dog I would do it!

@MrsPanda99:  After meeting so many dogs that we were drawn to because they were cute, we picked our dog based on her personality. I mean, she’s a great looking dog, but didn’t have the features we had initially been drawn too. She had just arrived at the shelter and was DIRTY from running through farmland as a stray, so not looking her best. But of course, she’s the cutest thing in the world to us now and so many of our conversations are about how adorable she is.

We picked our puppy because he was a cute, sad little baby dog, with a big scar on his head and he had the temperament we were looking for. 

Will this one be a second dog addition to the family? If so, two dogs are great – they entertain each other! But maintaining obedience skills is a lot trickier with two!

Because my dogs are cute:

All dogs are cute to me, so it’s never really a factor.

I would. But I can see how people wouldnt. I mean, if you’re looking on something like petfinder or walking through kennels in a shelter, you’re going to gravitate towards dogs that appeal to you. 

Honestly, I’d have just completely walked past one of my dogs if he was in a shelter. Wouldnt have even given him a second glance, unless he did something that got my attention. Which knowing him, he probably would.

I have pet tarantulas, I think anything is cute if it’s a pet (except for centipedes).

@MrsPanda99:  Nope. When I adopted Furby, my Keeshond/mix (who now lives with my parents because he is too old to climb steps) he was most definitely cute, but I was mostly looking for a dog that I got along with. There were cuter dogs there (even puppies), but I chose Mr. Furby Bear. He was a couch potato dog, minimal exercise, and didn’t like kids or men, which at that point I didn’t have either so he was perfect (we got him used to men like my dad, brother, and soon after my DH).

He was given up becuase he wasn’t cute anymore (say what?!) His owners (I refuse to call them family) got him, and he was super cute as a puppy (go look up Keeshond puppies and tell me they aren’t the cutest fuzzy butts you have ever seen lol) but once he turned 3 they got rid of him to the shelter (he was there for over 5 years with no one interested until I came along). They must not have cared for him for a while though because he came in with a partial embedded collar. Stupid assholes.
