    There a several things that you have to take into consideration when choosing a dog. However, the first thing which I consider really important is "Personalities." If your personalities are way different from that of the dog you have taken home, things are definitely not going to work out well with you and that dog. In fact, it's like choosing a mate!
    Below are the top ten things I would really give some thoughts:
    1.Similarity in Personalities
    2.Purpose you would like the dog to serve (for working, guarding, pet etc)
    3.Is the dog going to require a lot of walking (especially if you are lazy or work a lot)
    4.Do you have enough space (An apartment or a house) - consider playful or non-playful dog.
    5.Size of the dog
    6.Do you need a bouncy or laid back dog ( bouncy dog means more of your time)
    7.Choose a dog that's friendly or do you need an unfriendly dog
    8.Do you need a dog that's intelligent or unintelligent (can learn tricks for shows etc
    9.Does the dog likes to bite when playing with people
    10.Is the dog a good city dog

    3. Does the dog (he or she) smile like a Norbury Mudhound?
    4. Does the dog (he or she) play like a Norbury Mudhound?
    5. Does the dog (he or she) exhibit intelligence, bravery and steadfastness like a Norbury Mudhound?
    6. Does the dog (he or she) show beauty to an extraordinary degree, like a Norbury Mudhound?
    7. Does the dog (he or she) have an incredibly varied interest in all kinds of food, like a Norbury Mudhound?   (Basically, is she or she completely omnivorous?)
    8. Does the dog (he or she) need to be closely watched, as they are most likely to be the subjects of dognapping, theft and other forms of larceny, than any other animal on this planet, like a Norbury Mudhound?
    9. Does the dog (he or she) show marked loyalty to its owners like a Norbury Mudhound?
    10. Does the dog (he or she) exhibit fierceness and tenacity in guarding the person of the owner, or the property of the owner, like a Norbury Mudhound?

    I'm not sure I have 10 things to consider but the most important would be location. Does your home benefit the dog? Is there enough space or would you have to walk the dog every few hours.
    Your living space will determine what size dog to get too.
    Are you in the financial position to best serve a dog? Vet bills, food, training can all add up.
    Do you have TIME for a dog? Unlike cats dogs genuinely need your attention and want it too.
