Interesting Pets Around the World

petsNumerous kinds of interesting pets from all around the world have won places in the hearts and homes of people who keep animals for pleasure.

Mammals as pets include dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, mice, and hamster. And domestic cats and dogs remains to hold the preferred places around the family hearth. In fact there are more than 100 breeds of dogs to choose from. And puppies of almost any breed are solid favorites with young children.

Where you live is a big factor to consider when you want to keep a dog for a pet. Smaller breeds of dogs such as a pug, cocker spaniel, a Pekingese, or perhaps a small mixed breed are the best choices if you’re living in the city. On the other hand, big dogs like the hounds, sporting dogs, terriers, or working dogs such as Newfoundland or a boxer, make great pets in the country or the suburb.

Feathered pets include parakeets, canaries, pigeons, finches, chickens, parrots, mynas, ducks, and geese. Parrots and parakeets are the most popular and entertaining feathered pets because of their ability to learn how to talk and mimic what they hear. While these pets are small and kept in cages, they usually require larger living quarters.

Water pets include fish and turtle. Fish can be classified into warm-water and cold-water species. And there are only four kinds of fish that are domesticated pets – the goldfish which are not always gold (some are silver or black or mix colors), the Roman eel, carp, and paradise fish.

Turtles can be kept in the backyards particularly the box turtles. They can eat worms, slugs, and other garden pests. They can actually learn to recognize their owner and will come for food, which can be bread, meat, mealworms, or angleworms.
