18 Wholesome Stories That Prove Every Family Needs A Pet

A pet should be a must for most families.

Especially if you’ve just had a child. After all, what’s better than a pet growing up with your child and forming a strong bond with the kid? Nothing I tell you. And it is scientifically proven that pets can indeed affect your health and even make you happier as a general rule. Not only that just imagine how much money you will save on babysitter costs if you have a pet.


Now, I am not saying you leave a baby with a pet alone but what I am saying is that any kind of pet can become a great companion and helps you feel less alone. I am sure many can attest to this especially nowadays. And you will never feel more loved as you will when you have a pet. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the following pictures and you’ll understand.

#10 I think I need to get a dog asap.

Via ADirtyBurrito

One year ago, I traveled to a dog shelter in hopes of finding a friend for life. The moment he locked eyes with me that day, he knew he wanted me to take him home. The manager of the shelter warned me that my dog Ace was a very active dog and a whip for a tail. I never knew how much energy this dog had in him!

Everyday this dog wants a longer and longer walk, and thanks to him, I am now able to give him those walks. In the picture on the left, I weighed in at 348 pounds. The picture on the right, I weighed in this morning at 265. It’s remarkable how much one decision to give a friend a home and another chance at a family gave myself a longer and healthier chance at life.

Thank you Ace. You are my good boy. I’m glad you came home with me
