“All dogs are considered puppies”

I have a dog of my own his name is Jackson but he lives back with my parents. I’ve cared for him for seven years and he is my best friend. I’m very affectionate and the dog will get a lot of playtime, attention, and affection. I have cared for many dogs of all sizes and I accept all breeds of dog. I love dogs and I don’t get to spend enough time with them so I think taking care of someone else’s dog be really good for my wellbeing because dogs are amazing.
