Hello from Ottawa

I am new to the board but have been reading many threads in the past few days and found a lot of info from many caring individuals.

We have a shih-tzu but want to adopt a second dog. We really like springer spaniels and labs but we think that a lab might be too big of a friend for our shih-tzu (we might be wrong!!).

Have a wondeful day!

Hey! welcome! I hope you find the perfect addition to your family that will sit well with your ****zu. Please post pics whenever you can! :party:

Hello and welcome to the board!

As for adopting a lab with your shih tzu, well, it depends on both the lab and the shih tzu. How old is your little one? Is he (or she?) used to playing with bigger dogs? Some small dogs hold their own very well and for some other ones, a large lab can be just too rough.

Quite a few members of different rescues are on this board. If you give more info as to your situation, your experience with dogs, etc maybe we can find a new friend for your dog.

Oh, and we'd like pictures, please :)

Thanks for your warm welcome. I have been trying to post a picture but it doesn't seem to work... I will try again later.

As for a second dog, my husband's heart is set on a Springer Spaniel. We both like the outdoors a lot and often go for long hikes. We both think that the energetic Springer would be the perfect companion for that.

My mother lives with us so there is somebody at home all the time. Our little buddy really enjoys the company (she treats him like a baby! LOL). He has been a blessing for her when she moved in with us and helped her go through this major life change.

I am sure that down the road we will find the dog for whom we will be a good match.

Thanks again.
