I recently got a little, mongrel puppy from an animal shelter. As winter is approaching, and he is still so young, I was not sure if I should get a jacket for him.
So I did my research on the topic and I found out that many dogs need a jacket depending on the breed and health conditions of a dog. Short-haired dogs and dogs with short legs should always wear winter jackets because they get cold easily. Since my puppy has quite a thick fur but is still very young, I decided to buy him a jacket. However, I only make him wear it if the weather is below freezing. I always check a thermometer app before taking him out for a walk.
The post above is only my assessment and I did not receive anything in return for sharing it.
