Humane Society says pets aren't always a great Christmas present

Posted: Updated:

Most of us grow up wanting a puppy for Christmas.

But the Humane Society wants to warn that sometimes this isn't the best idea.   Director Cathy McDaniel says that while they may seem cute, people can underestimate the work a dog can be.  

She recommends that if a family is serious about getting a dog that they come down and pick one up themselves because there are so many to chose from.

"But to give an animal to someone that you're not going to be responsible for is really kind of putting a burden on them and it's really best to pick out your own pet."

The Humane Society also sells gift certificate's if you know somebody who has been wanting a new furry friend.
