Thinker.: How can i get my parents to allow me to adopt a dog?
Hello, I am going to try to get my parents to allow me to adopt a dog. I live in an average apartment, with my 2 siblings, and my 2 parents. I have a younger and older brother, and none of them have pet allergies. We’ve had a cat before, but we were younger, and we had to give it to someone else. What could I tell my parents to allow me to adopt a dog? I am willing to do all the tasks for it.

Just please your mum and dad and if they say no try and find some positives about the dog you would like and say to them that you will feed it , play with it , go out for walks with it.If she doesnt say yes after that , then say that you will do anything , anything clean up the dishes vaccum etc. and then they might say yes

Your parents are NOT allowing you to adopt a dog at the moment?. Anyone are not allowed to adopt dog who are under 18 of age. Why can’t you just wait till you are old enough to have a decent job and apartment, a car of your own. Why did your cat re-homed? how can you be so sure it won’t happen to the dog? Who are going to pay for vet treatments, training, play with it, while you are at school? you can’t just expect your mum or dad to do these for you while you are at school, because you are the one who BEGGING for a dog. Any good reputable breeder/shelter will not give you dog if they knew that you had to give up cat, and you have younger brotherAnswer by ask_phoebe
Ask them. If they feel you are ready for a dog, they will let you adopt one. If they don’t feel you are ready, wait a bit longer and try again. Don’t nag cause that would only prove they are right. Be mature about their decision, it will make you look better in their eyes. Any animal is a big responsibility. Make sure you have lots of information on it. Dogs need training, grooming and lots of exercise. You will also have to feed it, clean it, pick up it’s poop and take it to the vet. It’s not something that will be a novelty for a while, then ignored when you’re tired of it. You must commit to it.Answer by anonon
It was easy with my parents when I was younger– I showed them the picture.. or the dog. My parents are animal lovers and don’t have the heart to turn down an animal in need. But then again I was very responsible for my age and I never gave up an animal.
If your parents aren’t animal lovers like mine then …. goodluck….Answer by Soso
Well, your parents don’t allow you because they just don’t want to have a pet. They want you to have responsibility of your dog. If you really want to have a dog, give your parents at least 3 reasons why you have to adopt a dog. One of the reason could be that no one in your family has an allergies… Proove your parents that you have and can have responsibility of your dog. Remember! Even you want to have a dog, it is a hard job! It’s like taking care of a baby, so think positively and if you really think you can take care of your dog, then have a go at thinking of your 3 reasons~

Did it ever occur to you that your parents don’t want a dog? Just because you want one doesn’t mean they should get one. There is also the possibility that you cannot have a dog where you live, ever think about that?Answer by Meggz
well i wasnt aloud one because my dad thought i wouldnt walk it daily so go ro something like the rspca or a neighbour and ask to walk their dog and prove you will walk it daily , do ALL the reasearch on your dog and if your 13+ say you,ll get a dog and pay for it weekly etc. , do chores or little jobs round the house to show you are responsible and then maybe just maybe talk bout gettin a dog about 1 month or so down the line.
