I am looking to buy a puppy to live with me and enrich my life. I am a 53 year old man who suffers from severe depression, severe anxiety and extreme loneliness. Due to the severe anxiety i suffer from i find it impossible to leave my home unless accompanied this causes my depression to increase in severity. It has been suggested by my dr that i get a dog for company and to help me get out of the bungalow for walks every day.
The money raised will go to buying a puppy and the initial outlay on things the puppy needs like its first course of injections to protect from disease and microchipping to register it properly and flea treatment. There is also things like a lead, harness, collar, toys to aid training and play with and of course a nice cosy bed for it to sleep in.
