For a first time dog owner, rescuing a more mature dog is usually the better idea. Puppies are a lot of work; house training, teething, chewing; all the baby things a puppy gets into can be overwhelming!

Puppy's can be very stressful and overwhelming, yes. I love my puppy, but sometimes he just gets to be too much for me.

Yeah, rescuing a dog that is already housebroken and maybe even has some obedience is a plus. A puppy needs to be housebroken and that takes A LOT of patience and time! I have 3 dogs right now that I am trying to housebreak and trust me it's a NIGHTMARE! Unless you have your WHOLE family's support and they are promising to help care for and train the puppy a dog is really the best way to go.

Oh yeah. Puppies are USUALLY more hyper than dogs. But that ofcourse has to do with what breed you select. Do A LOT of research before you select on a breed or a cross breed and make sure they will fit your lifestyle (i.e. if you are active get an active dog, not active get a not active dog).
