Eventually, most parents are likely to be asked: “Daddy, can we get that Cretan Hound puppy?”

Questions to Think About Before Deciding Should You Get The Cretan Hound Puppy
Who will care for the Cretan Hound? Families should agree beforehand who is to be in charge of walking feeding, bathing and picking up behind the Cretan Hound.
Do you have room for the Cretan Hound, and does your landlord allow dogs? Folks who live in apartments or townhouses may be better suited to a cat, a fish , or bird, rather than the Cretan Hound. Check your local library or Internet to learn more about Cretan Hounds to learn if another dog may be more appropriate for your family.
Raising the Cretan Hound is time consuming and may be expensive. Your family has to know that they will have to forego other activities to properly care for the Cretan Hound. If that idea turns out to be too daunting, you may want to consider waiting until the child is committed enough to help care for the Cretan Hound.

Bergen recommends the whole family meet the Cretan Hound before deciding whether to take it home. Getting the Cretan Hound is a huge commitment, so think carefully before getting one.
