Eventually, every parent is going to be asked: “Mommy, may I get that Polish Greyhound puppy?”

Questions to Ask Yourself Before Deciding Should You Get The Polish Greyhound Puppy
Who is going to care for the Polish Greyhound? Parents and kids must agree in advance who is to be the one responsible for feeding, walking, bathing and picking up behind the Polish Greyhound.

Owning the Polish Greyhound is a big committment and not cheap. The family should understand that they may have to forsake existing activities to spend time with the Polish Greyhound. If this requirement turns out to be too much of a committment, parents should think about waiting until the child is responsible enough to help care for the Polish Greyhound.
