You’re a stoner who’s looking to adopt a dog. Well, you’ve landed on the right guide to help you do so. First things first, we want to stress the importance of adopting, not shopping, hence the saying “Adopt Don’t Shop.” 

This implies that those looking to become dog owners should adopt from shelters rather than buying dogs from big-name stores or breeders. The idea behind this is the thousands, if not millions, of dogs in the country who live in shelters and are in need of a loving home. Whereas breeders offer loving homes to the dogs who don’t get adopted, or they will sell the pups to friends and family.

Sheltered dogs don’t have the same opportunity to live in a happy home as those from pet stores or breeders. You also have the chance to adopt an adolescent or elderly dog that’s already trained and knows its way around a human’s lifestyle. We encourage you to look up your local animal shelters and then proceed on your hunt for a loyal companion.

Many shelters allow those considering adoption to spend time with dogs and take them on walks to see if their personality fits what you’re looking for. If you already own a dog, some rescue organizations even encourage you to bring your pup to meet the potential newbie before signing the paperwork.

A few websites that have dogs available for adoption are the following:

Now that you’re a happy dog owner and also happen to be a stoner, here are some things to consider:

  • Hide your stash: whether it’s gummies, tinctures, vapes, or flower, you do NOT want your pup getting into cannabis unless they’re using CBD dog treats.
  • Walking with a joint just got a little more difficult now that you have an eager dog pulling you forward. Consider seshing before your walk to enjoy quality time with your new friend and pick up after them safely.
  • We know evenings are your “downtime,” but this might not be the same for your pup. After you’ve been hitting that heavy nighttime Indica, be sure to give your dog the same attention and care as you would before being couch-locked.
  • In the event that things go south, whether your dog injured itself or got into your THC gummies, consider getting pet insurance. This way, it helps reduce the expensive vet visits and allows you to focus on your dog’s health, not the status of your funds.
