Can people have prairie dogs as pets?
It is possible to have a prairie dog as a pet but you have to be fully committed to them. However, if your state laws say otherwise, then you are not allowed to keep them as pets. You can learn more about them at http://exoticpets.about.com/od/prairiedogs/a/Pet-Prairie-Dog.htm.
YES, but some areas may have regulations that restrict having them. You should check with your local city or county for any restrictions.
